Women’s Perspective on Progesterone: A Qualitative Study Conducted in Australia

07 May 2010

A clinical trial published in last month’s International Journal of Pharmaceutical Compounding showed strong symptom relief and minimal side effects with progesterone treatment. This study is in line with numerous others conducted throughout the years reinforcing the benefits of bioidentical progesterone. Abstract: This study explored the perspective of women using compounded progesterone preparations. Semi-structured interviews were conducted in Victoria, Australia with eight self-selected women who were dispensed a progesterone-only preparation. Participating women gained symptom relief for migraine, painful breasts, mood swings, bloating, hot flushes, and other conditions. The participants also experienced unexpected benefits such as improvement in irregular and painful periods, relief from cystitis, or increased libido, without any reported.

Constipation & Progesterone Supplementation

Looking After Our Colon Many medical experts today agree that most illness begins in the colon and that the colon may be the single most critical organ in the body. As the colon becomes a stagnant cesspool, failing to move the poisons from food waste out of out of the body on a regular basis, the toxins back up. It is estimated that there are 36 different poisons that come from the colon, and as these accumulate in the bowel over a period of weeks, months or often years, they spread into your liver, gall bladder and other organs; into your blood; into your tissues and finally into your cells..

Phytonutrient Supplements For Cancer Prevention and Health Promotion The supplemental use of certain phytonutrients from cruciferous vegetables has great potential for the prevention of human cancer. Specifically, the discovery that certain cruciferous indoles — diindolylmethane and indole-3-carbinol (I3C) — also promote the healthy metabolism of estrogen has greatly expanded their use as effective dietary supplements for estrogen-related conditions. Besides possible cancer prevention, the uses for absorbable diindolylmethane have included benefits for perimenopausal women, in premenstrual syndrome (PMS), in endometriosis, and in cervical dysplasia. Women on estrogen replacement (HRT) also benefit from supplementation, as well as men with estrogen-related conditions, including prostate hypertrophy. In choosing dietary supplements containing either diindolylmethane or.

Overview Progesterone is named because of its essential functions in maintaining conditions in the uterus that sustain pregnancy (pro-gestation). During the menstrual cycle, estrogen causes the uterine lining to proliferate in preparation for implantation of a fertilized egg, and it stimulates a number of physiological events designed to prepare the body for pregnancy, such as stimulation of protein and lipid synthesis and mitotic activity. Progesterone levels rise after ovulation and act to complete the preparation of the uterus for implantation, resulting in increased secretory activity and strengthening of the blood vessels. When progesterone becomes the dominant hormone in the secretory (luteal) phase of the menstrual cycle, it reduces the estrogen-binding.

The main clue in diagnosing PMS is not so much the nature, but the cyclic timing of these symptoms. Symptoms appear around Day 12-14 right through to your period. Some women can display PMS symptoms unabated, even after.
