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.
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 keeping my weight in check and the blistering hot flashes so now it was time to boost my progesterone. 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! I also keep hydrated with CBD water and that really helps! CBD relieves chronic pain and helps reduce anxiety and inflammation. So now I take vitamins with CBD water 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!
