Health risks of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
have been flooding the media lately. On July 17, 2002, a large National
Cancer Institute (NCI) study, published in the Journal of the American
Medical Association, found a significantly higher risk for ovarian cancer
among postmenopausal women using estrogen than women not taking any form of
HRT. The week prior, the National Institute of Health stopped a major study
involving 16,000 women on estrogen plus progestin due to an increased risk
of invasive breast cancer.
Six million women in the US on HRT are panicking. Doctors are hearing the
same question: Should I stay on it or should I get off it? The hormone
replacement drug companies are seeing their sales plunge more than 40-50%
Natural Progesterone has finally hit the limelight because women are
searching for natural hormone replacement alternatives that have no known
side effects. Natural progesterone is manufactured by extracting diosgenin
from wild yams or soybeans and converting them to actual progesterone in a
laboratory. Synthetic progesterone drugs also are made from diosgenin but
the molecular structure is altered from what is found naturally. Synthetic
progesterone drugs may cause many known side effects.
When choosing a natural progesterone product, it’s important that the
product contains progesterone. Many products may list wild yam extract
containing diosgenin but actually contain no progesterone. Diosgenin is a
laboratory precursor to progesterone but there is no evidence that the human
body converts diosgenin to hormones.

The name Dr. John Lee, MD,
usually comes up when discussing Natural Progesterone because he is
the pioneer and leading authority on the subject of Natural Hormone
When choosing a natural progesterone product, Dr. Lee recommends the
- Transdermal cream (absorbed through the skin) rather than oral
progesterone because 80% to 90% of the oral dose is lost through the
liver. At least 200 to 400 mg daily is needed orally to achieve a
physiologic dose of 15 to 24 mg daily. Such high doses create
undesirable metabolites and unnecessarily overload the liver.
- Tubes rather than jars because progesterone deteriorates over time
with exposure to oxygen. By the time you reach the bottom of the
jar, you’re getting less progesterone. Tubes reduce the exposure to
oxygen, ensuring more potency over time.
- Creams that contain 450-500 mg of progesterone per ounce. Using a
¼ teaspoon daily would provide about 20 mg/day.
- Creams that contain no mineral oil. Mineral oil prevents the
progesterone from being absorbed into the skin.
