Estrogen dominance - How to Supplement PROGESTERONE
*** FIRST*** - Please read: Estrogen dominance treatment 1-2-3
Synthetic PROGESTERONE (a progestin) is different to bioidentical PROGESTERONE produced by the body
- Progestins, such as Provera and Megestrol, are patented synthetic hormones, which are NOT the same as the PROGESTERONE produced by the body. However, they do compete with the receptor/binding sites normally reserved for natural PROGESTERONE. By chemically altering the natural PROGESTERONE, drug industries are able to file patents and make multi-billion dollar profits.
- Different effects of progestins. Some will activate the receptor in a manner similar to the natural hormone, some will have a greater effect, others will have no effect or will block the receptor completely.
PROGESTERONE - Natural vs Synthetic Molecules
- Progestins are potentially highly toxic because of their altered molecular structure. In the body, progestins undergo different chemical reactions than natural PROGESTERONE , which causes several serious, unpleasant side effects and health risks not associated with natural PROGESTERONE, such as:
• Breast cancer
• Fluid retention
• Migraine headaches
• Cardiac irregularities (can destroy estrogen's beneficial effects of maintaining or raising HDL levels)
• Mood disturbances (E.g. depression)
• Birth defects.

Synthetic Sex Steroids - “Frankinstein Forms”
Women with a history of hypertension, diabetes, weight problems, varicose veins, atherosclerosis, breast or uterine cancer, and recurrent UTIs and vaginal infections should definitely NOT take a progestin (or a synthetic estrogen, such as ethinylestradiol, a conjugated equine estrogen (CEE), such as Premarin® or Duavee®, or a synthetic CEE, such as Cenestin® or Enjuvia® ). Since it will likely exacerbate those conditions.
