I wish that I would have discovered the game-changing benefits of progesterone cream sooner. A few years back, my husband of 30+ years and I spent a romantic weekend in New Orleans, celebrating my 50th birthday. The delicious spicy food unfortunately triggered a higher caliber of never-ending hot flashes. The dense southern humidity in August intensified my menopausal symptoms and it soon became nearly impossible to catch my breath. I ended up staying inside our air conditioned hotel while my husband explored the city alone.

I had been taking vitamins and supplements for a few years which helped tremendously with the hot flashes and night sweats. But it was clear that my hot flashes had grown stronger – as if hell’s kitchen was flaming inside my chest. I needed something stronger and I needed it fast. I was miserable and so was my poor husband.

When we returned home, I went to my OBGYN and told her about my elevated symptoms. The ferocity of the hot flashes seemed to have reached a whole new level. She said that my progesterone was low since I had a history of weight gain, fibroids and an irregular menstrual cycle. The vitamins and supplements helped with keeping my weight in check thank goodness so now I just needed to get control of the blistering hot flashes. She recommended a bioidentical compounded estrogen cream.

Progesterone creams that have a bioidentical compounded estrogen are a safe alternative to conventional menopausal hormone therapy. I use a 40 MG  progesterone cosmetic cream now to control the intensity of my hot flashes. I apply the cream to my skin daily and rotate the areas so that I evenly distribute the endogenous hormones. It took about 2 weeks for my torrid hot flashes to subside. A bonus was that it also helped with my vaginal dryness! So now I take vitamins and rub progesterone cream on my body to safeguard myself from triggers that cause hot flash flare-ups. It has made all the difference. I have my life under control again. And date nights are back!
