Questions & Answers
What is Natural Progesterone Cream,How does it work? and Who should use it?
Experts in the field of natural progesterone say"The most effective method of restoring physiological-equivalent to normal body function- progesterone levels, is with the proper supplementation of transdermally applied natural progesterone." Happy PMS Cream and Eve’s GENERATIONAL Formula are hypo-allergenic greaseless body creams that contain plant derived, bio-identical progesterone . the natural progesterone is derived from Mexican wild yam root. These sterols (diosgenin) are processed through several fermentation steps to yield progesterone which is identical to the progesterone which is produced by the human body(bio-identical). only a specific kind of wild yam root extract creates natural progesterone.The progesterone is suspended in a transdermal friendly cream with an aloe vera base that won’t clog pores and is hypo-allergenic. Happy PMS and Eve’s cream is cruelty free, odorless ,mineral oil and fragrance free. The transdermal (thru the skin) application is the preferred delivery method of natural progesterone.It takes less than 1 minute for the natural progesterone to be absorbed into the bloodstream, unlike pills which can lose 85-90% of their effectiveness because the progesterone must first pass thru the liver which filters it out. Dr. John R. Lee, MD, has successfully treated female patients with natural progesterone cream. Dr. Lee has defined the signs of progesterone deficiency(not to be confused with signs of estrogen dominance or signs of PMS)
SYMPTOMS OF PROGESTERONE DEFICIENCY include swollen breasts, depression, low thyroid, fibro-cystic breasts, water retention, weight gain, and loss of libido (sex drive). An endocrinology professor,Jerilyn C. Pryor, MD, at the University of British Columbia, found through testing that 50 per cent of the women in North America are severely deficient in progesterone by age 35 and that, during the menopausal years, progesterone levels decrease to almost zero while estrogen levels only decrease by 40 to 60 per cent. Dr. Lee defines this syndrome as "estrogen dominance". When this hormonal imbalance occurs, the estrogen becomes toxic to the body. Treatment with natural progesterone help the restored balance between these two main female hormones, eliminating the need for synthetic hormone therapy, and the undesirable side effects. PMS or premenstrual syndrome tends to occur 10 days before menstruation and go away shortly after. Common symptoms include menstrual cramps, bloating, weight gain, headache, backache, irritability ,depression, fatigue.
”It is likely that a hormone imbalance directly and indirectly caused by progesterone deficiency is the major factor in the majority of PMS cases” Dr. John R Lee (What Your Dr May Not Tell You About Menopause)

HOW DO I APPLY HAPPY PMS NATURAL PROGESTERONE CREAM AND EVE'S GENERATIONAL FORMULA AND CAN I USE THEM DURING PREGNANCY , NURSING, BREAST-FEEDING, WHILE MENSTURATING AND DURING POST MENOPAUSE?
_WHERE TO APPLY?
_Natural progesterone in a moisturizing cream can be applied to the face, neck, inner arms, chest, breasts, hands or soles of the feet. The cream is readily absorbed and leaves no trace after a few minutes. During absorption the cream by-passes the liver and goes to specific receptor sites where progesterone is needed.
_How Do I Use The Cream?
Please note that every woman is different, so find the category below that best describes your situation:
_Please Note: One inch strip of cream from the pump equals ¼ tsp.
_IF YOU ARE:
Post menopause (not menstruating), have had a Hysterectomy, Oophorectomy (removal of ovaries), or have Osteoporosis:
Use ¼ tsp. twice a day for 21 to 25 days a month. After three months, reduce to 1/8 tsp. twice a day. Do not use the first week of each month to give receptors a break.
+Note: Occasionally, upon beginning use of natural progesterone, a post-menopausal woman could experience some break-through bleeding. This is the body’s way of getting rid of excess estrogen. If this continues longer than several months, you should consult a physician.
_Menstruating on a monthly cycle:
Use ¼ tsp two times a day after ovulation (usually 12 or 14 days from the first day of menstrual flow) through day 26 of your cycle. You do not use natural progesterone while menstruating. However, if you experience menstrual cramps, try rubbing a small amount of cream on the lower abdomen. For migraines, rub cream on the back of your neck.
_Pre-Teen and Teens 100 lbs or less:
Use 1/16 tsp. of cream two times a day after ovulation (usually days 12 or 14) through day 26, for 3 to 6 months. If symptoms return, resume using cream to maintain good hormonal balance.
_Experiencing Endometriosis or Uterine Fibroids:
Use ¼ to ½ tsp. of cream twice per day beginning on the 8th day of your cycle until the 26th day. After 6 months, use ¼ tsp. two times a day after ovulation (usually day 12 or 14) through day 26.
_Wanting to get Pregnant:
Use ¼ tsp. twice a day, days 8 thru 26 for two months. On the third month, use ¼ tsp. twice a day, the day following ovulation through day 26. If there is a possibility of pregnancy, DO NOT stop using the cream until you take a pregnancy blood test at day 26. If negative, then resume scheduled use. If test is positive, use as directed for pregnancy.
Use ¼ tsp. three times a day from conception. In third trimester, gradually decrease and discontinue 2 weeks before scheduled delivery time. Apply primarily to abdomen, breasts, lower back, and upper thighs (where it will help prevent stretch marks).
NOTE: Do not use for at least one month after delivery if you are breast-feeding.
If you are breast-feeding and experience symptoms of PMS, Post-Partum Depression, or Estrogen Dominance, you may use natural progesterone cream no sooner than 30 days after delivery. Use 1/8 tsp twice daily for three weeks per month until regular cycle occurs, then resume usage as a woman menstruating.
