Reported Results
Benefits:   I have had stomach troubles my entire life. When I was pregnant they were unbearable. I could never take the pill because of nausea. I noticed that when I was 45 the nausea was associated with my cycle, becoming most intense just prior to my period. My gastroenterologist prescribed Nexium, which I took for a year, maximum dosage, daily and then tapered off. Then the other symptoms above emerged. When I started with the progesterone all these symptoms subsided significantly and I rarely ever have stomach problems now.
Side effects:   None at all that I am aware of.
Comments:   Prior to taking the oral treatment I used the cream, to avoid the digestive tract altogether. This was fine for about a year, but then the symptoms reappeared. My physician felt that something was interfering with the absorption of the hormones and so prescribed the oral pill and the symptoms have nearly disappeared and I have had no associated stomach problems. I am convinced that much of my stomach problems throughout my life were associated with a hormonal imbalance, but cannot prove this. I do know that this is the best my stomach has ever been in my entire life, for whatever reason.
