Important note for women… If you have been on HRT (hormone replacement therapy) or have a naturally high level of estrogen, progesterone will make you more sensitive to the estrogen in your body. Because of this, for the first two or three months the symptoms caused by excessive estrogen may affect you. If this is the case it is advisable to increase the daily application of progesterone cream, with the advice of your health specialist, until these symptoms have gone.
The main symptoms of excessive estrogen are…
- breast tenderness
- bloating/weight gain from water retention
- spotting or a temporary reappearance of your periods
- heart palpitations
- aches and pains or bruising
- tiredness/chronic fatigue
- hot flushes
- mood swings
- skin problems

If you are on HRT and wish to discontinue it, the gentlest course is to taper off taking the pills/patches/inserts over a period of 2-6 months. Adjust the tapering off period according to the severity of previous symptoms and how long the HRT was taken. See here for full details… (Coming off HRT coming soon)
