    I have been perimenopausal since age 39. Feeling irritable, anxious and having hot flashes- I felt out of control. A friend gave me an article on Emerita so I thought I would give it a try. After the first week I noticed a difference. Everything had calmed down. I can't tell you how many people my HUSBAND and I have told about this cream. I had copies of the article for anyone that was interested. I have been using it for 20 years now but I don't require the twice a day dose. I think it's important to stop using it for 7 days each month or coordinate it with your period. I have not had a period in 11 years but continue to use it. Occasionally, I will stop using the cream but after a few days some of the symptoms return. Interesting, my bone density levels are very good. My OBGYN recommends women into their 60"s be on some form of hormone-natural or synthetic.

    This is my third tube of 4 oz. Emerita Pro-gest cream. I am also taking menopause formula made by a different company and flax seed (which I heard helps hot flashes) for my cholesterol. I am still experiencing hot flashes and night sweats to the point it awakens me often. I'm wondering if I may need to apply more than twice a day? So, I'm still skeptical. However, I would recommend this cream & I will be trying another tube - you never know how it's going to work on each person.

    >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-06-21
    Flax seed can actually make some of those symptoms WORSE. I tried it years back and couldn't figure out what else I needed to do for relief. Then I researched more and found that flax seed can make things worse. Same with soy.I stay clear of both.

    >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-06-21
    Maybe you should stop using the other menopause formula and just try the Emerita for a couple months.

        Comments about Emerita Pro-Gest Paraben Free - 4 Ounces Cream:

        It took about two months of consistent use, but it happened: my skin became softer and my hair shinier! Now 36, I've been in a surgically-induced menopause since i was 29. The MDs said I didn't need progesterone ("it's only necessary if you have a uterus"), finally I met a ND who said I did. She was right. I didn't realize I felt so old until I started to feel young again.

          I tried several progesterone creams before I found Pro-Gest and it's a fantastic product! The other progesterone creams out there are either soy based or created by men - Emerita is a female owned and operated company and the difference is noticable!

                    Have used emerita PRO-GEST for years! No hot flashes, night sweats, etc. and no prescription. Most important to me - no animals are harmed. Just massage a dime-size dollop into your skin twice daily. Place I've always ordered from was out of the product for so long that I was relieved to find Vitamin Shoppe. Good price, quick delivery.

                      I started using Progest for: breast tenderness, heart palpitations, memory loss, weepiness, excessive menstrual bleeding, and weight gain. It helped immediately with all of these except the heavy bleeding and it did not make as much difference with weight gain as I would have liked. You are supposed to cycle it 21 days on, 7 days off while you bleed.I should have started using it about a year before I did so I used it straight through for the first 2 months and cycled off the 3rd month. The heavy bleeding I have had for the last 2 years resulted in severe iron deficiency also, which causes many of the same symptoms. Since I improved my iron levels and started on the Progest, I am a whole new woman. I'm still fighting the 2-5 lbs I've been fighting since I turned 52, but the reduction in heart palpitations, breast tenderness, and weepiness has been well worth continuing the Progest. It has also helped with my occasional insomnia. I reordered and bought 2 large tubes this time. It is awesome.

                        AWESOME! Results within the first month of use!

                        I had started experiencing horrible pre menopausal symptoms-- heavy, irregular bleeding; PMS headaches, nausea, fatigue. Used Pro Gest as directed (2x a day) the first month, 2nd month I found that half the dosage (1x a day) was sufficient. Yes, the scent is a little funky but it dissipates quickly. Cream absorbs easily, I alternate between inner arms, breastbone, inner thighs, tops of hands/feet. My periods are now regular and lighter, and PMS symptoms are gone. Also using Black Cohosh and adding more soy to my diet. I've always eaten sensibly and work out 5x a week.

                        I did a lot of research before trying a progesterone cream and Pro Gest was by far the best reviewed, it's all natural USP in the correct dosage needed for effectiveness, and made by women for over 30 yrs. Will definitely be using this through the duration of menopause!

                          37 year old here who has gone through 4 gynos in the last 5 years with no help...only frustration and tears. I have a 5 cm fibroid that gives me horrendous periods and I've gained weight even after changing to a healthy lifestyle and working out...Shaun T/Insanity and Jillian Michaels couldn't even help. After doing my own research to find that I'm estrogen dominate (thanks to no hormone testing from any of my gynos who only wanted to keep doing test after test for extra money), I ordered this cream just to see if it would help. I hope that I'm not speaking too soon after using this product for only one week but I feel FANTASTIC! My energy levels have increased, brain fog is gone, eating/sugar cravings are getting under control, and...I've lost 2.5 inches off my waist in a week...without exercising! Of course I plan to get back to exercising but I'm thrilled with this cream.

                              I have entered a period of estrogen dominance characterized by 3 months of constant bloat, breast tenderness/cysts, and absent periods. I am 126 lbs/50 yrs old and I've been lifting weights mixed with HIIT cardio for more than 25 yrs. I've always eaten healthy and in the last 6 yrs, have eliminated most processed foods. I was just at that point women get to when perimenopause advances. I really don't want to adopt a full blown identical hormone regimen. I found this product and apply 1/8 tsp 2x daily and my symptoms were gone within 5 days. I would not have believed it if I had not experienced it myself. Give this product a try for a healthy alternative and RELIEF. My body is back to "normal" now. Results in 5 days with consistent results for 3 months now.

                                Following a lumpectomy for my estrogen based breast cancer, I sought an integrated medicine doctor to advise me on alternatives to tamoxafin, which had too many negatives for me. Among many things, he recommended progesterone cream, and specifically, Emerita's product, which he knew to be of high quality. I have used it faithfully for 10 years and credit it as one of the key reasons I have not had cancer again. No downside, other than to establish a routine of using the product.This replaced my hormone replacement "Estradiol" which was most likely the cause of the breast cancer.

                                    I am a smaller woman, so I found that using about 1/8 tsp once a day works perfect for me. Within days of first use, my symptoms improved. Within a week and a half, hot flashes, depression, bloating, moodiness were all gone. The cream is light and barely scented, very nice. I feel safer knowing this is a paraben free product and this is so much better than synthetic hormones. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone having pre-menapause symptoms.

                                    Unfortunately this has not worked for me. It is very very concentrated. It also leaves your skin sticky if you don't really rub it in. Was worth a try..off to the doctor I go.

                                    I found my inner balance with this product. I am able to control my emotions, ups and downs, and my hormonal imbalance. I feel level again. I wish I would have tried this years ago. My only compliant is I do have nights where I am somewhat sleepless. Other nights I sleep deeper and longer. When I first started taking the product, I had a very slight headache. Nothing severe but more of an annoyance. After a week, headache was gone. I also appreciate Vitamin Shoppe for offering free shipping to Alaska.

                                      I used this product to treat pcos because i did not feel comfortable taking the pills that the doctor prescribed me that contain progesterone but are made from horse pee. I started using this product for two weeks and i got my period, it has been over 8 months since i last got it. it really worked for me!

                                        I've been using this product for about 12 years and I will continue to do so. I'm 66 and have never had a hot flash, never experienced what other women have concerning menopause. I may not need it anymore but I'm not willing to take the chance!!

                                          I read about this product in a magazine and decided to give it a try. I've had SEVERE hot flashes (that seems to be the only symptom I've had for menopause) for 4 years. I don't want to take prescription hormone therapy and I've tried just about all the homeopathis products available with no success. The Pro-Gest cream took a couple of weeks for me to see a difference. After I stopped using the cream after the 1st 21 days according to the instructions, the flashes came back but they weren't as bad. I'm almost finished using my first tube (I bought the 4 oz size) and I plan to buy more. I would recommend this to anyone who is desperate to find relief from hot flashes. It also has a pleasant frangrance--not medicinal. The only thing that bothered me was the warning from California about the product causing cancer. I thought if I follow the instructions and give the product a break in use it would be ok. Plus I hope not to use the product forever----hopefully, the hot flashes will subside someday, right?!

                                            I'd been impressed by all the results so I decided to give it a try. I'd tried patches and medication before with poor results. The first time I tried, I got a hot flash within 10 minutes. It wasn't the start I'd hoped for, but then something changed. The hot flash didn't fully kick in. I felt warm but my face wasn't bright pink and I didn't break out in a sweat and the flash was over in under two minutes. This was definitely an improvement. I followed the directions and used it twice a day. I might have at most one warm flash during the day compared to 8 or 9 full bright red face, burning ears sweaty skin. At night I was having 6 to 7 full hot flashes at night that woke me and drenched me in a lot of sweat. Sometimes I wouldn't even dry off before the next one came. Now with this cream, I rarely get a night hot flash. If I do get one, my neck sweats a bit and it goes away quickly. My mental attitude is better. I feel almost like a new person. All the other reviews of the product helped me find it so I wanted to do this review in the hopes someone else will try this product. HINT: I've found that the best location for the cream in on my inner wrists and inner arms. When I tried other places, it just didn't seen to work as well. So if the cream doesn't seem to work in one place, try another.

                                                I have never written a review for anything before but feel compelled to do so. I have been using ProGest for a couple of months and my hot flashes and night sweats are gone! I was at the point where my quality of life was being severely affected do to my lack of sleep. I was waking up soaking wet 5 to 8 times a night. I can't tell you how happy I am to have found Pro-Gest. Vitamin Shoppe offers it for a great price and get it to you quickly.

                                                    I (age 58) have been using ProGest for a couple of months and happily report that I feel calmer, sleep better, less water retention, increased fat loss. I work out 5 times per week and have had stubborn fat loss until I started using ProGest. I just generally feel better and a lot less brain fog. I definitely recommend this produt. I use a half teaspoon in the morning and same dose at night on different areas of my body. The way to tell if you're using too much, is that you will feel sleepy or tired in the afternoon. If you experience, that then back off a bit. For example, when I started I used a rounded 1/2 teaspoon 2X per day and experienced the late afternoon sleepiness. So, backed off to a 1/2 tsp and feel fab.

                                                    CAROLYN M asked: has anyone experienced any negative side effects such as liver issues or anything serious like that? I am extremely sensitive to medications and usually ALWAYS have the side effects listed. Would like to try something to help with anxiety and fat loss (diet and exercise aren't working). Any input is greatly appreciated :) Feb 1, 2013

                                                    Paula K: Hello. I have been using pro-gest for about 5 years now, first for pre-menopausal headaches and now for post-menopausal hot flashes. The pro-gest helps some for both symptoms but does not relieve these symptoms by itself. Since I have heard from a number of sources that pre and post menopausal women could benefit from taking pro-gest and getting the progesterone, i am guessing that I am better off with it than without it, and I continue to use it. I have never had any side effects from using it. Because I now am taking Lipitor I have my liver tested regularly, and I have had no problems with my liver from the Lipitor or anything else, including the pro-gest. I do not know if pro-gest is recommended for anxiety and fat loss. It has not helped me lose weight. Feb 3, 2013

                                                    Marge C: Hello Carolyn,

                                                    I have been using the Progest for several years, and have had cholesterol and liver tests once/year for at least the past three. Everything was normal. I really haven't noticed any side effects at all from the Progest.

                                                    The bad news is that I don't think it has done anything to help me with fat loss. On the other hand, I haven't gained any either, despite eating more than I should, as always. So perhaps it has helped.

                                                    Good luck!

                                                    irene f: Hi Carolyn,
                                                    I'm using this for hot flashes occurring during menopause. I have not had any negative side affects. my advice is to not utilize any Big Pharmecy products if your sensitive.
                                                    There is a world of natural healthy alternatives. prevention is also useful key. One I've been actively using for over 30 yrs
                                                    My question would be why are you considering using this for anxiety or weight loss

                                                    Donna D: I have used Emerita Pro-Gest for over 10 years with no negative side effects. Relief of anxiety and mood shifts is a primary benefit I receive from Pro-Gest. Many progesterone creams have a number of herbal products in them also, and these are often problematic for those with allergies or sensitivities. Pro-Gest has fewer ingredients than many other formulations. Feb 1, 2013

                                                    Women of any age may benefit from the use of natural progesterone. Pro-Gest includes instructions in the package for use by women who still have menstrual cycles and for those who are menopausal or post-menopausal.

                                                    For an excellent thorough but not overly technical explanation of the benefit of progesterone cream for women of all ages, you might want to read Dr. John Lee's book "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause". This book is available from many sources including amazon and local public libraries.

                                                    You might also be able to find a health care practitioner in your area who can offer an evaluation of your need for progesterone through saliva testing, questionnaires, or other means

I personally have heard that it is safe to use after menopause just take a break perhaps once a day at night is helpful for sleep and then 3 weeks on and one week off. I am very sensitive to lotions and chemicals. This is the cream I have used for 15 years. I have tried others and had reations, this one my OB recommended and seems to work, it is much cheaper at Vit Shoppe. Mar 7, 2013

I use it every 23 days then off from the 1st thru the 7th of the month as directed. Give it a try. Buy a small container at first to see if you find some relief. Give it a month to kick it. The cream goes a long ways. Good luck!! Mar 5, 2013

                                                    it indefinitely.

                                                    Lois F: USP simply stands for United States pharmaceutical grade. You should always look for a cream that is 100% USP grade progesterone.
                                                    The USP sets standards for purity, quality, strength, and consistency.If progesterone is said to be USP grade that means it has met the standards of the USP for quality. The USP is not regulated by the FDA. However, all products given USP approval have been subjected to a rigorous set of quality standards.
                                                    My understanding is that it can come from Mexican wild yams, or from soy beans.

I can't locate that book now, but I seem to recall that natural progesterone creams are plant-based (yam?). I also seem to recall that Pro-Gest was one of the products that the book recommended. It was also recommended to me by my clinical nutritionist. Sorry I can't be more specific about this. Hope it helps! Aug 30, 2013

                                                    Susan Y: From the Emerita site:
                                                    What is the source of progesterone?
                                                    The progesterone is sourced from the Mexican Wild Yam and converted to pure progesterone, which is why the Mexican Wild Yam does not appear on the ingredient list.

                                                    Hope this helps.

                                                    Marina R: Safe as far as recommended usage? I've been using this product for 2 years with no problems. My doctor recommended it for pre-menopausal symptom relief and it has helped. If you're considering using this in some other non-traditional (oral, etc.) way however you should check with your doctor and/or directly on the emerita website for whatever concerns you have.

                                                    Linda M: It is plant based, takes the place of our natural progesterone and when used with the natural estrogen seems to mimic the natural bodily hormones. I've used it for about 15 years and haven't died yet! Jul 17, 2013

                                                    Linda M: Dear LaDonna,
                                                    I don't have this condition and use Pro Gest as a way to maintain some hormonal balance. I'm in my 70s. Good luck.

                                                    June M: I agree with your doctor. This is a great product to naturally replace the estrogen cycle after menopause, thus keeping the bones healthy and strong. I have used it for a while now and am very pleased with how it keeps the hot flashes in check too. Jul 8, 2013
