Progesterone Cream: Stay Young and Sexy With This Ingredient that Reduces PMS

Story at-a-glance -

  • Natural progesterone cream, made from naturally-occurring plant steroids found in wild yam, can be useful for premenopausal challenges such as PMS and painful cramps, and may help prevent miscarriages.
  • Be careful to avoid ALL synthetic progesterones, like Provera or medroxyprogesterone, as they can produce severe side effects including increased risk of stroke and cancer.
  • Oral hormones are ineffective, as only 10-15 percent eventually reach the target tissues.
  • Progesterone cream must be used cautiously when applied to skin as progesterone is highly fat soluble and will accumulate in fat tissue, thereby disrupting adrenal hormones such as DHEA, cortisol, and testosterone.
  • Ideally, progesterone cream should NOT be applied to your skin. Instead use mucous epithelial membranes of your labia or rectum. Absorption through these membranes is more complete than through skin, and hormones absorbed through vaginal membranes enter the same pelvic plexus of veins that your ovaries normally empty into.
