Pro-Gest - Natural Progesterone (2 oz. Cream)
Progesterone is a hormone made by your body that plays an important role in balancing out the effects of estrogen and other hormones. If you have too much estrogen and not enough progesterone, your body may be thrown out of balance. It is common for women who are approaching perimenopause, and even through menopause, to produce smaller amounts of progesterone. Progesterone cream can supplement your body’s own levels and lead you back to a state of natural balance.
Pro-Gest helps with the hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, and decreased sexual drive associated with menopause. When you massage cream directly to your skin it's absorbed into the underlying fat layer and becomes available for use by your body. Pro-Gest is the only brand of natural progesterone cream that has been clinically tested. It contains no paraben, petroleum or mineral oils.

Precautions: Side effects are extremely rare with natural progesterone. The only one of common concern is that it can potentially alter the timing of your menstrual cycle. Also, this product contains progesterone. The synthetic form of progesterone (such as Provera) has been shown by the State of California to to increase the risk of cancer. Virtually all cancer concerns or other side effects are associated with the synthetic form. However we feel it is better to adjust your hormonal balance including the use of this product with the support of a knowledgeable health care provider.
