Re: Natural Progesterone creams - side effects?
Thanks Chris for your information. As I said earlier, I am using a natural form of Menopause medication which has been around for over 20 years called Remifemin and it is purchased over the counter from Chemists. My GP told me about it and I have used it now for about 18 months.As a result my oestrogen levels are good and they help with most symphoms, but I had a drop in progesterone and that's why I have been using the cream. I have not had a cycle for over 12 months now. Since yesterday after posting my message, I didn't use the cream last night and only used half of the normal dose this morning and funny, I don't seem to have a headache today and feel less foggy generally, so maybe I was using too high a doseage. I guess I will just keep trying this and see how I go. I was amazed that so many women have foggy head and headaches and chest pain/tightness. I did not know these were side effects until I read a similar site like this one. I hope to hear from more people like yourself,who may tell me more info. Thanks,
