Several months back, I posted about essential oils for PCOS and fertility. My mom surprised me by giving me Progessence Plus, EndoFlex, and Ocotea essential oils for Christmas. I was so pleasantly surprised. I don’t think my mom and I have talked about those oils since that blog post, so the thoughtfulness she displayed by giving those to me was incredibly touching. They are oils that I have long wanted, but not been ready to make the plunge on, because they are a bit pricey.
Now that I have these oils in my possession, I’ve been doing more research on exactly the best ways to use them. Since the information can be a little overwhelming, I thought I’d start with the Progessence Plus blend first.
What is Progessence Plus?
Progessence Plus Syrum is a natural hormone replacement made with wild yam extract, Vitamin E, and a blend of several essential oils (I listed those in my original post, so I’ll spare you this time around) Wild yams are said to help normalize blood sugar levels, combat weight gain and hair loss, and help reduce the occurrence of hormonal headaches.The oils used in Progessence Plus all have anti-inflammatory properties.
Progessence Plus also helps promote restfulness and sleep.
How to use it:
Unlike some progesterone supplements, Progessence Plus can be used every day, rather than cyclically. It is also unnecessary to rotate application sites when using Progessence Plus.
Apply 2 to 4 drops daily on the neck or another place of the body where the skin is thin. For additional benefits, you could also apply a couple drops daily to the forearm, but you should not use the serum more than twice per day.
If you buy your own Progessence Plus, you’ll notice that instructions for use are on the bottle’s label.
Our bodies need progesterone in order to function properly, and in order for us to feel our absolute best. Low progesterone levels are something that many women struggle with; not just those of us with PCOS.
I’ve just started using my P+. According to several testimonials I’ve read, it could take about a month before I’ll start to notice any sort of difference. Women have said that they’ve noticed cycle regulation, elevated energy and mood levels, improved libido, and fewer headaches as a result of using their Progessence Plus regularly.
Can Progessence Plus be taken while breastfeeding?
This was my biggest question, since I still nurse Bonnie. After all my research, I feel completely comfortable taking it while nursing. When you are breastfeeding, your body requires extra progesterone anyway. I’ve also read that it’s safe to take during pregnancy, but of course, you’d want to double check with your doctor first! Women who have taken it while pregnant have reported fewer migraines and less morning sickness.
Progessence Plus during Fertility Treatments or while on Birth Control Pills
It should NOT be taken while on ANY synthetic hormones OR any other type of progesterone, natural or synthetic.
Since I am still nursing every few hours, I don’t anticipate my cycles returning anytime soon, but I am excited to see what other benefits I notice once I’ve used Progessence Plus faithfully for several weeks. Reading the Amazon reviews alone made me giddy!
If any of you have tried it, and have testimonials, I’d love to hear them… Good or bad!
