I get countless requests for suggestions on a good bioidentical progesterone cream. I’m also asked frequently if bioidentical hormones are worth taking, and what I think of them in general.
Unfortunately, like you, I am still learning. I wish I had clear cut answers. But, given the fluid nature of medical research and what is good for us and what is not, I am simply not in a position to give you the cure-all answer.
But, I did run across an excellent resource recently that I think does an excellent job in explaining and answering the questions that we have about bioidentical progesterone. It is an excellent resource that will help you decide which, if any, bioidentical progesterone product you may want to use.
The author, John Tice is not a physician or medical professional. He is a man who has studied medical literature and gathered information on the topic with the express purpose of making it available to you - the consumer – so that you can make an informed decision.
I plan to contact Mr. Tice to see if he will allow me to make the e-book available here at The Perimenopause Blog.
But, until I hear from him, I wanted to make it available to you by directing to this website. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the e-book “Good, Better, Best” How Do I know Which Progesterone Cream to Buy? Click on the link and it will take you to a PDF file.
The author covers some major questions that many women have regarding bioidentical progesterone:
- How to Choose a Cream
- How Much Progesterone Should be in My Cream?
- Are All Creams Created Equally?
- Filtering through the Nonsense
He also addresses other more common questions:
- Do all women experience the same results?
- If some is good, is more better?
- How much cream is applied?
- Perimenopausal women
- Menopausal women not receiving estrogen
- Menopausal women taking estrogen as a supplement
- Does progesterone play a role in osteoporosis
The entire e-book is only 19 pages long. So it is concise, to the point, and does not contain a bunch of fluffy, unnecessary information. He also includes a list of books and other resources at the back that he recommends for reading – some of which you can find here at The Perimenopause Blog (Dr. John Lee’s books), and some suggested titles on herbs and natural remedies for perimenopause symptoms.
As always, I’m interested in hearing your feedback. Be sure and leave any insight, information, or comments you may have either here or on Facebook.
