Side Effects Of Progesterone Cream  

While proponents of progesterone cream claim that it is very effective in restoring hormonal balance in the body, many forget to inform that there are some side effects of progesterone cream that a person should be aware.

Some of the side effects of progesterone cream are mentioned below:

  • Natural progesterone cream may cause growth of facial hair, cause weight increase or hair loss in women.
  • Some women may experience muscle pain, pain in the breasts and/or headaches when they start using natural progesterone creams.
  • It is quite common for women to experience stomach bloating, cramps and nausea due to the cream.
  • Vaginal itching, discharge from the vagina and dryness of the vagina are other side effects of progesterone cream.
  • As the cream is applied on the skin, it gets absorbed by the subcutaneous fat and from there it enters the bloodstream. Prolonged usage of the cream causes the progesterone to accumulate in the underlying fat and this can disrupt the secretion of hormones from the adrenal glands.
  • The cream has sedative properties and using natural progesterone cream can cause drowsiness. Hence, after using the cream, it is not advisable to drive or do anything that requires concentration.

That is why it is important that when a woman begins to use natural progesterone cream, she first consults a qualified doctor. The doctor will recommend the amount of cream that a woman should use as it varies from one woman to the next. In addition, the woman must ensure that she gets sufficient hours of sleep at night and she eats a balanced and nutritious diet. This will help to combat the side effects of progesterone cream.
