Pro-G-Yam: Finally...a Natural Progesterone Product that Works!

Ladies, Pro-G-Yam® Cream is a product I wholeheartedly endorse!

It is favorite of women for many female issues— PMS, hot flashes, infertility and more.

Studies have shown that many of these female health problems are related to women having an excess of estrogen without enough of the balancing hormone progesterone.

Pro-G-Yam 500 has natural progesterone in it. Most creams on the market use synthetic (man-made) progestin which has been linked to various health issues.

Most importantly, Pro-G-Yam 500 uses unique ingredients to deliver its progesterone over time. This delivery system is so unique that it is covered under a US patent.

Let me tell you how I discovered this natural progesterone.

Five year ago, I started having very heavy periods, hot flashes, and drive-my-husband-crazy mood swings.

My gynecologist started me on birth control pills to control my symptoms.

The first drug slowed my bleeding down considerably (didn’t do a thing for the other symptoms); however, the side effects were intolerable. So she put me on a weaker drug that didn’t kill my stomach as bad, but it also didn’t control my bleeding.

After running a lot of expensive tests, she determined there wasn’t anything very serious wrong with me and put me on a hormone replacement pill that I had to take just once a month.

help mood swings It worked somewhat - some months were fine and other months - it was difficult to go out in public for 3 or 4 days until the heavy bleeding stopped. (I would be on my 3 or 4 day and not doing much when it would suddenly come in a gush and caused me many embarrassing moments.)

The last thing she tried was a birth control ring. Worked pretty good for a couple of months and then it was right back to the way it was before.

So...when I went in for my last annual checkup, she told me - we were out of options and I needed a hysterectomy.

I told her I would think about it...well...a couple of months later the decision was taken out of my hands when I had an accident and ruptured 2 disks in my neck. I was off work for over 6 weeks.

help pms With the bleeding getting worse and no more time to take off work, I was becoming desperate. I tried some natural progesterone, a friend had recommended. Won’t mention the name of it, but I bought it at my local Wal-Mart, which should have given me a hint of the effectiveness of it. Didn’t do a thing but waste my money.

Finally, about 6 months ago, I was reading an article in a Nature’s Sunshine magazine about a product called Pro-G-Yam® Cream.

It stated, “Nature’s Sunshine’s Pro-G-Yam body cream contains real progesterone, not synthetic progestin, which can have negative side effects and supplements the body’s natural level of progesterone to help balance hormone levels.”

I is a “cream” going to do anything more than all of those other drugs I had tried? But...what do I have to lose? I was desperate to find something that might help with some of my ever worsening conditions. So I ordered a tube.

hot flashes The first month I used it, I had a pretty normal period; however, I was still pretty skeptical as I had had some “normal” periods before, but they never lasted.

By my third month of “regular” periods, I was starting to get pretty excited. Not only was my periods lighter, but I wasn’t having as many hot flashes and the greatest improvement (besides the bleeding) was I didn’t have that terrible want-to-rip-someone’s-head-off feeling I ALWAYS had the week before.

Now, six months later, I am so sold on this natural lifesaving cream! I am still having “normal" periods. I do not have any more hot flashes and best of husband has come out of hiding for that full week before my period.

I still have my moments where I would like to scream (I’m still human and some people know how to get on my last nerve...sometimes)...but not very often. Any of you that suffer that skin-crawling, nervous, please-God-don’t-let-me-slap-someone feeling can relate.

Here is some information about this natural progesterone cream:


Pro-G-Yam® Cream is a fragrance-free body cream containing natural progesterone. Each ounce contains 500 mg progesterone in a unique herbal base designed for maximum skin absorption and efficacy—wild yam, chamomile, ginkgo, horsetail and yucca.


  • Supplements the body’s natural level of progesterone to help balance hormone levels.
  • Provides needed glandular system support while also supporting the nervous and structural systems.
  • Helps fight damaging free radicals.
  • Soothes and softens the skin.


Progesterone plays a vital role in maintaining hormonal balance in the female body. It supports several normal body functions relating to the reproductive cycle in the female.

Many women experience a decrease in progesterone levels as they age. When progesterone levels drop below normal, several effects can occur, including hot flashes, moodiness, excess body hair and brittle bones.

How It Works:

Like estrogen, natural progesterone is made by the ovaries during the menstrual cycle. It balances the effects of estrogen. Progesterone supports cell oxygenation, normal blood sugar levels, mood regulation, bone formation and utilization of fat for energy.

Some plants contain phytonutrients that are chemically similar to progesterone. Mexican Wild Yam contains generous amounts of a substance called diosgenin, a precursor to progesterone that can be converted to progesterone in a laboratory.

Progesterone’s function as an estrogen balancer makes it beneficial for supporting the body during aging, menopause, hot flashes, PMS and other health concerns.

Recommended Usage:

Apply a pea-size drop- approximately 1/4 teaspoon (provides about 21mg of progesterone) to the soft regions of the body once or twice daily. Rotate application to a different area of the body each day, i.e., upper arm, abdomen, inner thigh, etc. Use no more than one tube per month.

A tube usually last me 3 months. It doesn't say so on the instructions, but I found it works better for me to stop using it on the day my period starts and then I start using it again as soon as it ends.

Caution: Do not use if on hormone replacement therapy.
