The 15% of women suffering from PCOS are often hitting a brick wall when it comes to finding a reliable cure to alleviate the symptoms and get rid of the condition all together.
Polycystic Ovary syndrome is a nasty and complex condition that produces a wide variety of uncomfortable and painful symptoms ranging from disrupted menstruations- and in the worst cases a complete absence of menstruations- to hirsutism, weight gain, acne, elevated levels of cholesterols, Type 2 diabetes as well as fertility issues.
PCOS can have negative impact on all areas of a woman’s life. Not only does the condition bring some terrible discomfort physically and emotionally, but its general strain can affect a woman’s relationship or marriage especially if she cannot conceive. The debilitating symptoms can also have negative effects on both the professional and social life of sufferers.
Not all women affected by this complex condition will develop all of these symptoms but there will still be consequences in the long run if the condition isn’t diagnosed properly. A yearly visit to your gynaecologist is strongly recommended. Watching for changes in your menstruations as well as any other signs is also recommended.
For those who are familiar with the symptoms of PCOS, you should by now have a good grasps of the different forms of treatments available. There are plenty of them but the question is whether they are effective or not?
Also, as explained before, there is “no official cure” for PCOS, and doctors mainly refer to “management” of the symptoms when discussing possible treatment solutions. Doctors have divided these symptoms into 4 different groups starting with insulin-related issues, which can indeed lead to serious health complications.
This is followed by fertility issues and more physical symptoms such as hirsutism and acne. The last group includes all the menstruation-related issues, which represents a high percentage amongst PCOS sufferers.
Conventional medicine is used predominantly to reduce insulin-related issues brought on by PCOS, but debates have been going on for some time regarding the effectiveness of the drugs prescribed to reduce the insulin resistance for polycystic ovary syndrome sufferers.
This is of course only one example amongst hundreds on how PCOS symptoms usually managed with chemical-based medicine. Other symptoms such as infertility for instance can be treated chemically but the results have not been satisfactory enough. Also, fewer and fewer women rely on fertility clinics to help them conceive.
A combination of diet and exercise are also part of the treatment methods offered by doctors to their patients, especially with regards to weight gain, which remains a major symptom of the condition but the relief is short-lived and a healthier lifestyle is no substitute for an adequate treatment.
So, is it possible for PCOS sufferers to reverse the symptoms for as long as possible and why not for good?
Some have found the response in something very simple but extremely effective, and which basis rests on common sense more than anything else. Women suffering from PCOS are lacking in progesterone hormones, which is produced by the ovaries and other glands during the ovulation period.
The whole reproductive system becomes disrupted even before the first signs of PCOS appear- if they do as some women will experience no symptoms at all. As a result, the ovulation won’t happen and the progesterone hormones won’t be released, leading to a hormone imbalance that will, along with plenty of other factors, trigger the many symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome.
The idea of supplementing women’s depleted levels of progesterone is not new but how the molecule enters and is distributed into the biological system is. You may have heard of natural progesterone cream before but you may not have been aware of its efficiency for treating the symptoms associated with PCOS.
Natural progesterone cream is becoming a real saviour for millions of women throughout the world. Women who had nearly given up on hope and reluctantly agreed to learn to live with the condition. And, the answer to the question “why natural progesterone cream works for PCOS” is in the question itself; it’s natural.
NatPro, our range of progesterone cream and one of the main leading producers on the market is 100% natural meaning that the molecule contained in the ointment is identical to the one produced by a woman’s biological system. The benefit of the natural progesterone cream is twofold.
First of all, since the product is absorbed directly and instantly through the skin instead of having to go through the normal digestive process, the active ingredient remains unaffected and only a small dosage is necessary to start seeing results.
Secondly, the fact that this active ingredient- the progesterone hormone- is bioindentical means that the body will instantly recognize and accept it as if it had been produced in vivo. The molecular structure and the general composition of Natpro has been so carefully produced that no side effects have been reported.
Now, what about the dosage and how long should you be using Natpro for?
Well, this of course, very much depends on the severity of your PCOS as well as other factors such as age, and how long you have been suffering from the condition. As a general guideline, using 20 to 40 mg of natural progesterone cream is considered the norm.
It’s recommended to start using NatPro twice a day, once in the morning and once before you go to bed. It’s best to apply the cream to softer areas of your skin such as face, neck and breasts. Start off using the cream from day fourteen of your cycle and see whether changes are occurring.
The first symptoms to fade away should normally be acne and facial hairs. Weight loss occurs after a few weeks of treatment and depending on the symptoms you suffer from, you should adjust accordingly. Some may take longer to clear but the recent medical research has shown that the effects of natural progesterone cream on PCOS work long term.
Once the first symptoms disappear, it’s important to carry on the treatment for the first six months, at the very least. What the cream does is, first; balance out the levels of progesterone in order to reduce the symptoms, and secondly “train and teach” your body the forgotten hormonal mechanism necessary for the reproductive system to function properly, at any age.
