Progesterone is a natural female hormone that is produced from the ovary after ovulation occurs in the last 14 days of the menstrual cycle. It prepares the uterus for implantation of the fertilized egg, and is thus called the hormone of fertility. It balances the effect of estrogen upon the breast and uterus, thus reducing breast pain and lumpiness and the amount of menstrual bleeding.
Dr Sandra Cabot's progesterone cream contains real progesterone hormone in the natural bio-identical form. Some people think that plant hormones, (such as diosgenin found in wild yam or soy) are the same as real progesterone. Well they not, as they have a different chemical/physical structure to real progesterone. Our progesterone cream is derived from soy and yam but has been changed in the laboratory to make its structure identical to the progesterone made by your ovaries. That is why the cream is called “bio-identical” progesterone.

- Great for Menopause
Since I started using this product along with the Femmephase I no long suffer from hot flushes and night sweats. Also sleep better
- It compares to the natural form from the Women's International Pharmac
I used a prescription form of natural progesterone cream for years from the Women's International Pharmacy. I switched to using this after menopause. I didn't see much difference so I stopped... but I'm thinking that was because I was no longer menopausal. I don't know if that's true or not.
