Menopause And Breast Cancer

Do women going through menopausal have lowered levels of progesterone? Research tells us that women do suffer from decreased levels of progesterone and also have other symptoms such as gain, depression, tiredness, loss of hair. A natural cream can balance estrogens. Oestrogen and progesterone are the two major hormones made by the ovaries of women when they’re menstruating. Quantities of these hormones are secreted by the adrenal glands. It’s necessary for the existence of the fetus during gestation, its embryo as well as the fertilized ovum. Progesterone’s main functions include: acting as some precursor to oestrogen and testosterone, it preserves uterus lining and helps in gestation, protects against fibrocystic breasts, breast and colorectal cancer, acts as a natural diuretic, helps use fat for energy, may be a natural antidepressant, helps thyroid bodily hormone activity, normalizes blood clotting, restores libido, blood glucose, magnesium and magnesium levels, restores proper cell oxygen levels, includes a thermogenic effect, builds bones and helps protects against osteoporosis.

Some doctors believe menopausal symptoms, osteoporosis and heart troubles may not be due to a lack of oestrogen, but to an oestrogen surplus due to progesterone deficiency. Synthetic progestins, like a HRT drug called Provera, don’t have the same biological results as natural progesterone and have been known to cause adverse results including: fluid retention, depression, breast tenderness, stroke, jaundice, blood clotting, and cervical erosions. And on the other hand, natural progesterone includes no known adverse results and includes been found to be helpful in alleviating symptoms like Premenstrual syndrome and hot flashes. It’s also been credited with helping to prevent osteoporosis.

Many physicians now prescribe for females in menopausal the use of some low dose, natural progesterone cream throughout the last fourteen days of the menstrual period. The cream is easily absorbed into thin skin areas like the breasts, inner arms, neck or belly by the subcutaneous fat and after that released in the bloodstream. You should be cautious of the dosage level in these products. Some might have none to very little and others provide 20-30 mg in an average application.
