Are you feeling tired? Lost your libido? Difficulty losing weight? Does PMS leave you feeling moody, sad and craving chocolate? Are you experiencing heavy bleeding?
Many women simply accept symptoms of menstrual issues, believing they are normal; however, you do not need to put up with experiences of depression, headache, breast tenderness, food cravings, exhaustion, heavy bleeding or pain. These signs indicate that your hormones are out of balance. Even symptoms such as low libido, fatigue, and inability to lose weight can be tied back to imbalances in estrogen and progesterone.
Women produce both estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen is a powerful stimulant in the body and progesterone opposes its action. Without enough progesterone, estrogen becomes dominant and wreaks havoc in the body. Progesterone also serves as a building block for hormones, including those that balance your blood sugar, those that help you better deal with stress, as well as estrogen.
If progesterone is suspected to be out of balance, a small amount of bioidentical progesterone cream can help to restore hormone balance. It is applied topically once or twice a day throughout the second half of the menstrual cycle. It may also be used continuously to treat heavy bleeding.
