Perimenopause Symptoms | Can Progesterone Cream Help You?

Are you dealing with perimenopause symptoms? Contrary to what a lot of people believe about menopause, there is more going on than a lack of estrogen. In fact, sometimes, especially with earlier perimenopause symptoms, relatively high estrogen levels may be to blame.

 

These high estrogen levels are known as estrogen dominance, a phenomenon that is not commonly addressed by conventional medicine. Dr. Christiane Northrup has also addressed estrogen dominance during perimenopause. When estrogen is high, the hormone progesterone can help balance it and alleviate symptoms of estrogen dominance.

 

Dr. Marina Rose has helped women with perimenopause symptoms and other challenging and chronic health conditions in and around the city San Jose, CA.

 

Progesterone is the other major female sex hormone. Levels of progesterone rise after ovulation because progesterone is “pro gestation” or “pro pregnancy” so your body releases it to prepare for possible pregnancy. When levels drop in during perimenopause estrogen is relatively high. This leads to perimenopause symptoms.

 

Bioidentical progesterone cream is one over the counter option that may help balance hormone levels. This cream is applied to the skin, especially on the legs and belly. The hormones are then absorbed through the skin. To work with your own body’s rhythms, it’s often recommended that you use bioidentical progesterone cream after ovulation and until your period, when progesterone levels would naturally be rising.
