Welcome to the Revolution
If you need help with hormones or periods, you’re in the right place. This site explores women’s health topics such as immune treatment for endometriosis and the 4 types of PCOS. You’ll also find information about natural treatments including iodine for breast pain, natural progesterone for heavy periods, and some of the best natural anti-androgen supplements for facial hair and acne.
As I describe on this blog and in my books Period Repair Manual and Hormone Repair Manual, bioidentical progesterone is a viable treatment for women’s health conditions such as PCOS, PMDD, migraines, endometriosis, adenomyosis, and perimenopause.
Progesterone is available as “oral micronized progesterone,” and requires a doctor’s prescription. Brand names include PrometriumⓇ, UtrogestanⓇ, TevaⓇ, and FamenitaⓇ, depending on your country. Alternatively, progesterone cream is available over-the-counter in some countries and can help with mild symptoms but is generally not as effective as capsules.
Here’s what you need to know.
Too much testosterone can cause insulin resistance and abdominal weight gain in women.
That’s why androgen excess is a factor in the weight gain associated with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), menopause, and some types of birth control.
