What is Progesterone?

Progesterone is a hormone that is the precursor of cortisol and testosterone. It also maintains the correct range of Estradiol (E2).  When Estradiol levels are not maintained correctly, it may cause prostate growth leading to Benign Prostate Hypertrophy (BPH).

What is BPH and what are the Symptoms?

Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy is quite simply the swelling of the prostate. Most men older than 40, will suffer from some symptoms of BPH at some point. Symptoms include:

  • Interrupted weak urinary stream
  • Need to urinate frequently especially at night
  • Dysuria- painful urination

Why Would Men Need to Replace Progesterone?

As men age Progesterone levels naturally decrease allowing Estradiol levels to rise. By supplementing with Progesterone Cream Estradiol levels are stabilized within normal ranges. Progesterone supplementation does not produce any feminizing characteristics.

How Do I Use Progesterone Cream?

Progesterone Cream is rubbed onto the skin topically onto the sides of abdomen and upper inner thighs. The proper dosage for this condition is 1/8 teaspoon of the Progesterone 2% Cream daily.

What Else Can Cause Estrogen to Increase?

All Estrogen levels can be raised by a variety of factors including Xeno-estrogenic compounds that are added to pesticides, plastics, solvents, adhesives, and meat.
