Bio-Identical Progesterone Cream
Shortly before my 38th birthday, I started experiencing some pretty weird stuff. I had already been dealing with acne break outs that seemed a little odd. But after having an every-28-days period (with the exception of pregnancy) since the age of 11, I noticed that my period was coming early every month. Sometimes, it came up to a week early! Then, there was never a break between periods. I was spotting or bleeding the entire month, and when I did start my period, I wasn't even sure it was my period because I never got a break. I went to the doctor, where everything checked out "normal." But the problems continued, including new pains that felt almost like the beginning of a urinary tract infection. I did a lot of reading online and figured I probably had developed uterine fibroids. I didn't do anything about it and life kept moving forward until one week, I literally bled for an entire week. This was not spotting, this was fresh, full on "super-plus" bleeding for a full seven days. Enough! Since I was already iron deficient, I knew I had to do something. So I decided to order Progesterone Cream from Organic Excellence.
After the first cycle of using the cream, my periods became regular again. I'm sure that doesn't happen for everyone so quickly, but I'm one of those people who reacts really quickly to changes such as drugs, herbs, and apparently, hormones. I have a super sensitive system that responds immediately if it's going to. And boy, did it! I am back to 28 day cycles, and my period is back to the regular 4-5 days. And no spotting or bleeding in between! Yahoo!!
(About seven years later, when my periods slowed to a screeching halt, I switched over to their progesterone cream with estrogen for two months which got rid of unrelenting hot flashes. At this time, I'm using no hormone replacement whatsoever.)
