When I started having some rough, irregular periods in 2003, I was 41. My chiropractor suggested I try using progesterone cream (all natural, available in any health food store).
Lo and behold, my periods went very smooth and I was preggers in about 2 cycles! This was a wonderful "side effect". I miscarried that baby at 16 weeks, then 2 cycles later I was pregnant again. I used the cream until the last trimester, and my son was healthy and full term.
I started using this cream again, and now I am 8 weeks along at age 44. Most older moms are low on the progesterone, and this is a saliva or blood test your OB can do. I never did the test, because I used the cream for menstrual woes!
When I miscarried, the OB had me on a synthetic progesterone pill, and I didn't use the cream, so I will always wonder if I kept on the cream, would that baby lived? It can make you crazy, so I am still using the cream now.
