Progesterone Gel Directions

If you are a first-time user of Natural Progesterone, you may be wondering how and when to apply the gel. Please read the WHERE section and then choose which situation or two situations describe you best to determine WHEN.

Where To Apply

Because Natural Progesterone is smaller than the cells of your skin, it will penetrate right into your blood stream. Therefore, you may put the gel on any skin that is not overly tanned (ie neck, breasts, tummy, buttocks, vaginal area, legs, back, etc.) It is not advised to apply to arm pits.

The Natural Progesterone in our gel formula only takes 1 to 5 minutes to be completely absorbed into your system. After 5 minutes, you may shower, bathe, swim, or wash and still enjoy the full benefits of Natural Progesterone.

When To Apply

Please choose which one or two situations fit you best.

 

Currently taking synthetic hormones
(i.e. premarin, estrace etc.)

If you are post-menopausal or have had a hysterectomy and are currently taking synthetic hormones, we feel it is important to wean your system from these pills over a period of 3 months rather than abruptly making a switch. Here is how:

Month 1: On the 6th day, start using the Natural Progesterone Gel with one full pump (approx. 1/2 teaspoon) twice daily (am and pm), stopping on the 1st day of the next month. Also reduce your intake of the synthetic hormones to every other day for the entire month.

Month 2: Reduce your synthetic hormone intake to every third day. Start the Natural Progesterone Gel again on the 6th day as before, stopping again on the 1st day of the next month.

Month 3: Reduce your synthetic hormones to once a week. If you should run out of your prescription before the end of the month, no need to refill. You can simply stop. Start the Natural Progesterone Gel on the 6th day and continue again until the first day of the next month.

Subsequent Months: Continue starting and stopping the Gel as before. It is very important to stop using the Natural Progesterone Gel at least 3-5 days each month with your goal being 5 days off per month.

No Longer Menstruating

Begin with one full pump (approx. 1/2 teaspoon) twice daily starting on the 6th day of each month, stopping on the 1st day of the next month. Do not use the Natural Progesterone Gel for the first five days. It is very important to stop using the Gel at least 3-5 days each month with your goal being 5 days off per month.

Some women who are no longer having menstrual flow and have NOT had a hysterectomy may experience some 'breakthrough' bleeding. We feel that the Natural Progesterone helps the body eliminate the effects of estrogen dominance and thus can stimulate a shedding of the uterine wall built up in the presence of excess estrogen. However, if this bleeding were to repeat itself for longer than a few months, consult with a health-care professional.

Still Menstruating With Adverse Menopausal Symptoms

Begin with one full pump (approx. 1/2 teaspoon) twice daily starting after ovulation (which is usually 12 to 14 days after the start of the last menstrual period. Continue this dose until menstrual flow starts again. It is very important to stop using the Natural Progesterone Gel at least 3-5 days each month with your goal being 5 days off per month to mimic the natural hormone cycle. It is this natural, hormonal cycle, which is adversely disrupted by progesterone deficiency.
