Provest Hydrating Body Cream Natural progesterone reduces the symptoms and discomfort of PMS, premenopause and menopause without the side effects often associated with synthetic hormone replacement therapy. The liposome-mediated delivery system used in ProVest carries the progesterone directly into the bloodstream, bypassing the metabolic processes required by other transdermals. Hormone replacement is routinely advised by gynecologists for menopausal, and post-menopausal women, most commonly for relief from menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes. For most women, hormone replacement is synonymous with estrogen replacement.
Suggested Use: The information herein is for general use and not intended to encourage self-diagnosis, self-treatment or replace the guidance of your health professional.
For PMS and pre-menopausal symptoms, begin using the cream 10 to 12 days after the first day of your period. Apply the cream twice a day from either Day 10 or 12 through Day 26 or 48 hours before the scheduled start of next period. If your period starts early, stop using the cream – Mother Nature is trying to balance your hormone levels. When your period starts, count forward 12 days (10 if you normally have a shorter cycle than 28 days) and begin the program on that day. Be patient, it may take three cycles before you achieve synchrony with your normal cycle. If you have cramps, headache, swollen breasts, etc., the cream may be applied directly to the problem area.
Menopausal, and post-menopausal women not taking estrogen, have greater latitude in using the cream. For convenience, you may choose a dosage schedule based on the calendar month. Use the cream twice a day from the 1st to the 14th or 21st of each month and none from the 15th or 22nd to the end of the month. Some women report that using a larger dab of cream at night helps them sleep better. Menopausal women taking estrogen should reduce their dosage by half when starting to use progesterone cream. This is important because in women deficient in progesterone, the cream may temporarily increase the sensitivity of estrogen receptors. If estrogen intake is not reduced, you may experience symptoms of estrogen dominance during the first couple of months. You may try lowering your estrogen dose by half again every two to three months. (The estrogen dose should be low enough that monthly bleeding does not occur, but high enough to prevent vaginal dryness and hot flashes.) Estrogen and progesterone can be used together for up to 25 days each month, with 7 days without either hormone.
