Dr. Christiane Northrup On Oprah
Dr. Christiane Northrup discussed the benefits of using 2% progesterone cream during menopause on the Oprah Winfrey show Wednesday, February 6, 2002, and in a follow-up segment on March 4, 2002.
The progesterone content of Pro-Gest Body Cream is 3% by volume and 1.5% by weight. Since progesterone is a powder and measured by weight, the 1.5% is more accurate. However a more useful measurement, for the consumer, is the milligram (mg) amount of progesterone in the suggested application. Pro-Gest Body Cream contains 20 mg per quarter teaspoon.
Pro-Gest Body Cream was involved in a 1999 study, published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology. This study showed a decrease in hot flashes for 83% of women who participated in the treatment group when they applied a quarter teaspoon of cream (containing 20 mg progesterone) daily. Dr. Northrup’s book, Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom (1994), refers frequently and favorably to Pro-Gest Body Cream, recommending 14-20 mg. twice a day.
In a woman’s body the majority of progesterone is secreted by the corpus luteum, which forms in the ovary following ovulation. During the second half of each monthly cycle, from ovulation until menses, progesterone is designed to be the dominant hormone. Not all women produce sufficient amounts of progesterone during the second half of their cycle. Prior to menopause, as ovarian function wanes, cycles frequently occur where a woman does not ovulate (known as an anovulatory cycle). This period leading up to menopause is referred to as "perimenopause." Anovulatory cycles that begin in perimenopause can lead to hormone changes that may result in hot flashes, changes in bleeding patterns, PMS-type symptoms, as well as many other menopausal symptoms. While progesterone levels fall close to zero due to anovulatory cycles at menopause, estrogen levels may only decline to about 40-60% of pre-menopausal levels. Progesterone has a number of important roles relative to menopause. It is the natural balancer to estrogen, as well as being necessary for optimum estrogen utilization. Research over the years has also revealed other vital roles of progesterone on the heart, blood vessels, nerves and brain. Many women find that supplementing with progesterone allows them to achieve a balance once again.

Emerita Response Cream
Men have Viagra. Now it’s women’s turn.
Emerita Response Cream came from a very simple idea: What if we could create a stimulating topical cream that women could apply a few minutes before sex to get things going in a natural way? That’s all it is. Just rub a little on as directed, and it goes to work for you.
The amino acid L-Arginine and Ginseng promote increased blood flow to the clitoris, and Ginger Extract and L-Menthol from mint oils create pleasurable warming. The result is increased blood flow, lubrication and arousal. And all of this without a pill, without synthetic chemicals and without muss or fuss. Just a little something natural to help you enjoy what nature intended.
Suggested use: Dispense a small amount of the cream onto your fingertip. Apply directly to the external vulvar tissue over the clitoral region. Rub into the area gently and thoroughly. Re-apply as desired. Emerita Response Cream contains ingredients that produce a warm and tingling sensation. The sensation may be enhanced by massaging and stimulating the clitoral area. Response time may vary. Individual response time may improve with successive use.
