Hello Catherine, October 2008 My name is Kimberly I’m 22 and currently expecting baby #1. Here is my story on progesterone cream. When I was 18 a reflexologist discovered I had a cyst on my left ovary. She made this discovery due to the fact I had severe menstrual cramps. She told me to take progesterone oil or cream, so I did and it helped my cramps and made my periods regular. I ended up running out of the progesterone oil that she gave me, and did not use it for a very long time. On August 11, 2005 I married a wonderful man named, Neal. Right away we started.
Drs. Kenna Stephenson, Anna Kurdowska, and Pierre Neuenschwander recently published a manuscript titled: Transdermal Progesterone: Effects on menopausal symptoms and on thrombotic, anticoagulant, and inflammatory factors in postmenopausal women in the July/August 2008 issue of The International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding. This research study meets the "gold standard" for scientific investigations because the women were given a placebo (inactive product) or active hormone; both the researchers and the patients did not know whether or not patients received placebo or hormone; and the women were switched to placebo or hormone during the study duration. All of these procedures ensured that the measured changes were related to progesterone and not other factors. .
