Paraben-Free Pro-Gest is the only brand of natural progesterone cream that has been clinically tested. It helps women find relief from issues that occur during perimenopause and menopause.During perimenopase and menopause, hormone imbalance can lead to discomforts such as hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, vaginal dryness, irritability or decreased sex drive. These complaints are often present postmenopausal as well. During the reproductive years, hormone imbalance may cause premenstrual complaints such as water retention, breast tenderness, migraines or mood swings.
What is Progesterone? Progesterone is a hormone that your body makes. It 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. Pro-Gest natural progesterone cream can supplement your bodys own progesterone levels and lead you back to a state of natural balance.
How to use: Pro-Gest cream is intended for external cosmetic use. To apply, just massage a teaspoon into your skin twice a day. Apply it to your inner arms, inner thighs, abdomen, or chest, rotating the areas where applied. It absorbs quickly through the skin, and you're on your way back to a natural balance. Pro-Gest is best used according to your menstrual status. The following are recommendations that should be confirmed or modified in concert with your health care provider.
