I wish that I would have discovered the game-changing benefits of progesterone cream sooner. NOT! It does absolutely nothing for you, ladies. How do I know, you may ask?? 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 was rubbing progesterone cream in my skin multiple times a day! I ended up staying inside our air conditioned hotel while my husband explored the city alone.
My primary doctor advised me to take menopausal vitamins and supplements that were made specifically to target the hot flashes and night sweats. When we returned home, I went to my OBGYN and told her about my elevated symptoms. 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 that. I asked her about a bioidentical compounded estrogen cream and she said it was fake news!
