Progesterone, not estrogen, is often the first hormone to decline during the peri-menopausal years. According to Harvard research, it's estimated that by age 35, the typical woman is already deficient in progesterone.
Progesterone has benefits far beyond its role in menstrual cycles and pregnancy, and lack of this essential hormone can affect many of the body's systems.
Signs of progesterone deficiency:
- Frequent hot flashes and night sweats*
- Emotional Swings*
- Weight gain, especially around the tummy*
- Lack or decrease in sex drive*
- Exhaustion/low energy*
Benefits of proper progesterone levels:
- Reduction of menopausal symptoms
- Improved hormone balance
- Stimulation of bone formation and prevention of osteoporosis
- Stabilization of zinc-copper balance
- Enhanced sex drive
- Metabolism of fat
- Promotion of a sense of well-being
Q: Can I use this with other HRT?
A: Yes, though it may be a good idea to evaluate your hormone levels with a Salivary Hormone Test. Also, if using hormonal contraceptives, please use back up method of birth control.
Q: Do I have to use this forever?
A: Progesterone is important for many aspects of health in women of all ages- from balanced monthly cycles and mood swings to relieving hot flashes and night sweats and supporting healthy bones.* You may use ProgestaKey long term, or just as long as you want to help manage symptoms.
Q: Do I need to rotate the site of application?
A: Yes, we recommend rotating the site of application every week to prevent saturating the progesterone receptors in your skin. For instance, week one apply to chest and neck, week two to abdomen, week three to inner arms and inner thighs.
Q: My cycle is irregular. How do I decide when to start and stop ProgestaKey?
A: It's common for a woman's cycle to be as short as 20 days and as long as 40. Day 1 of your cycle is considered the first day of menstruation. The basic instructions for menstruating women advise using the creme from day 12 to 26. If your menses begins before day 26, simply stop using the creme when it begins, and resume again on day 12. If your menses is still happening by day 12, still begin using the creme as scheduled. If you experience spotting, stick to the regular schedule. If the spotting is so prevalent that you can't discern your true menses, simply use the creme for two weeks each month and keep consistent to that schedule.
Q: I've had a hysterectomy. How should I use ProgestaKey?
A: Please follow the directions for menopausal women, applying the creme for 25 consecutive days and then taking a 5 day break.
Q: I want to do the salivary hormone test. Can I still use ProgestaKey?
A: To achieve an accurate reading, we recommend abstaining from the creme for at least 3-5 days prior to collecting your saliva sample. Menstruating women should collect their saliva on days 19, 20, or 21 of their cycle, so consider skipping ProgestaKey all together that cycle. Menopausal women can collect their saliva any day of the month, so aim to do so on the final day of the 5 day break from ProgestaKey.
