Progesterone  -  Delivery Methods

There are a number of delivery methods available today,choosing the correct one can be rather daunting. Many of us ask our doctors for advice or search on various websites. As I have come to work with progesterone, people and their symptoms, it has become clear that delivery methods are so important as most of them do not delivery the correct of amount of progesterone to help one's particular symptom.

Listed below are the various methods available today:

  • Injections
  • IV Transfusions
  • Subcutaneous Implants
  • Suppositories/Pessaries
  • Tablets - for dryness
  • Torches - Lozenges
  • Drops
  • Oral Caps
  • Gels
  • Oils
  • Creams

Before deciding do make sure that you know and understand exactly what your chosen method consists of. All to often harmful ingredients are used which could cause problems themselves:

  • non-biodegradable silicone elastomers
  • progestins - a synthetic progesterone
  • PEG emulsifiers (polyethylene glycol) - these can contain dioxane
  • parabens
  • phenoxyethanol
  • sodium lauryl sulphate
  • propylene glycol
  • fragrances
  • artificial colours
  • liquid paraffin
  • peanut and sesame oil

Subcutaneous Silastic Capsules - non biodegradable, contain progestin which lasts approximately 5 years. Tablets - an applicator is needed and contents need to be understood. Oils - not used often.

Torches/Lozenges, Drops and Oral - are the least effective as 50 to 70% of the progesterone is destroyed by the gut and liver. They can also contain some harmful ingredients and drops are very bitter.

Injections and Suppositories/Pessaries - are effective. Injections are painful and suppositories/pessaries are limited in their application.

IV Transfusions - an effective way of delivering progesterone in an emergency i.e. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Creams - to my mind are the best delivery method available. They have a major advantage over the other methods as the progesterone in creams are absorbed well. However, do take care when it comes to choosing creams as some of them contain some harmful ingredients. Look for a cream that is as natural and organic as possible. Research to make sure you know what you are buying. They can be applied to any part of the body and contrary to what has been said, they do not have to be applied to the thin layers of the skin only, even hair follicles absorb progesterone well.

As progesterone is an excellent anti-inflammatory, it can be used on any painful area:

  • menstrual cramps - rub on the stomach
  • migraines and headaches - rub at the back on the neck and up temples
  • dryness - excellent for inflammation same applies to piles
  • burns - use promptly, helps with blistering and burn marks
  • insect bites and all wounds - rub on area
  • face - helps with wrinkles, pigmentation etc
  • liver spots on back on hands - the more you sue the quicker they will disappear

All the above except for insect bites and wounds, are caused by estrogen dominance.

Another important fact about creams is to choose one that contains the correct amount of progesterone. All to often, the progesterone used is too little thereby creating all sorts of estrogen dominance symptoms.

I do hope that this has helped you to understand the various progesterone delivery methods available. Take care when choosing and make sure that the correct amount of progesterone is used.
