It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver (Gandhi)!During peri-menopause my wife went through some hellish years of hot flashes, weight gains and mood swings until we finally found an empathetic (female) doctor who prescribed this product. The difference was almost immediate. She lost weight (without dieting!), her mood improved and the hot flashes disappeared. Years later, she remains in great health and still uses Pro-Gest 3 weeks a month.
Not many products seem to give one a detectable improvement right away, this did for me! Just a tad more energy the next day after using it. Might have brightened my mood somewhat as well. Being past 65 in age my face has gotten unwelcome lines. Tried a tiny dab on my cheeks and it seems to help with that withered look.
This cream was a lifesaver for me, 25 years ago, I found out about this from a book written by Dr John Lee. I have recommended it to several friends. I suffered from HRT prescribed by doctors for 7 years and finally sorted myself out with this cream. Now functional medical doctors are recognising that premenopausal is a low progesterone issue. I now use it occasionally at 76 years old as my body needs some help.
I really like this product, decent size tube (4 oz) last relatively long. I wish it was equipped with a pump, to dose it more precisely. The light texture of the cream makes it easy to apply to different parts of the body, no rubbing necessary. I use it with Estroven pills to balance menopausal symptoms but I plan to switch from Estroven to Emerita, Estriol Natural Balancing Cream, 4 oz with the next cycle.
I find it the best bioidentical progesterone to use. I take a little bit of bioidentical estradiol as well (prescribed from dr.). It is recommended to check you edometrium/the uterine lining (with a gynecologist), so that it does not build up and cause possible cancer there if you are menopause and don't have your natural cicles/periods any more and don't have the natural removal of the uterine lining.
No fragrance, which I really appreciate! I used it my last cycle in the luteal phase to help with our conceiving efforts. Will try again the next cycle. I read on multiple forums to not take it until you're sure you've ovulated, so please be mindful of that. Using progesterone before your ovulation could tell your body that it's not necessary to ovulate, thus possibly hindering ovulation. I was using ovulation test strips last cycle to figure out when to start using this cream. Like if this helps you!
Cream is rather thick, while not unpleasant, definitely leaves skin feeling a little slick/greasy to the touch even after six hours. It definitely has an effect; the additional hot flashes were an unwanted side effect but at least it seems to have slowed down the crazy menopausal bleeding (maybe). There is no scent, which was a plus. It did what I was looking for it to do.
I am very pleased with how well this product has helped me with balancing hormones. I was dealing with some issues with my cycle and this cream very quickly helped clear up the problem. I followed the instructions and apply twice per day, a very small amount. I will be reccommending this to friends.
I believe it's far too early to give feedback but so far I don't feel ill on it, I'm hoping it will solve my problems i.e saggy skin, dry down below and inside, tired all the time, sneezing a lot and under the weather. possible estrogen dominance from pollution food and hormones. I used this cream many many years ago when I had hot flushes and other menopause symptoms..so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.. Tiarmarie 🤗
I started using this product about six months ago when I was at my wit's end with hot flashes and other menopausal symptoms. This may not be the solution for everyone, but I feel better when I'm using this product than when I'm not, so it's now part of my daily routine. There's no scent, and I only need a pea-sized portion morning and night to feel the benefits. I've found a single tube lasts me a long time. Your experience may vary, but my personal experience with this product has been excellent, and I will continue to buy and use it.
