Correct progesterone deficiency
|Due to the hormonal IUD (10 years) my progesterone level was like I said in the basement.|
Various attempts with nature-identical progesterone in the following 5 years failed because my progesterone receptors were obviously still occupied by the synthetic progesterone (gestagen). Therefore, I could not metabolize the progesterone and turned it into estrogen. This reinforced my already existing estrogen dominance.
Only after these 5 years did I succeed in raising the level slowly but surely by means of homeopathic progesterone cream (D4). But even then I had to be careful with the dosage. Tipping over into estrogen can happen here as well.
In between, I also drank mantle tea for months, which was also good for my progesterone level.
|You only have to worry about progesterone if you suspect a deficiency.|
This is often the case with synthetic hormones such as the pill, hormonal IUD, etc., but also naturally during menopause.

First of all, you need a hormone status.
This can be done in the blood (progesterone on the 21st / 22nd cycle day and estrogen on the 4th cycle day)
or in saliva.
Non-medical practitioners can accompany a therapy with bioidentical progesterone. However, only doctors can issue prescriptions. An alternative is a homeopathic progesterone cream that is freely available commercially.
Other remedies to stimulate the progesterone include chaste tree and mantle tea.
