Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding: What Do We Really Know?
The world is, and always has been filled with experts’ on everything. In the internet age, things have become even worse with the opinions of everyone with an internet connection being heard throughout the world. This is okay when discussing miscellaneous things but when it comes to your health, listening to online ‘experts’ can be dangerous.
An example of this is Dysfunction Uterine Bleeding (DUB). Some ‘experts’ will tell you that you need estrogen therapy to successful rid yourself of the symptoms. DUBl is a distressing problem for women and is actually made up of a 6 different conditions:
- Menorrhagia – When a woman loses more than 80 millimeters of blood during her cycle
- Metorrhagia – Irregular uterine bleeding during regular menstrual periods
- Menometrorrhagia – Heavy bleeding during expected periods and at various other times
- Polymenorrhea – Bleeding that occurs at regular intervals, less than 21 days apart
- Oligomenorrhea – Uterine bleeding that occurs less often than usual. Women with this form of Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding have menstrual cycles greater than 35 days apart
- Amenorrhea – When a woman doesn’t have menstrual periods at all, often because of underactive ovaries
For years, the prevailing wisdom was that DUB could be cured through estrogen therapy. Irregular and heavy bleeding is often caused by a hormonal imbalance. It was assumed that a lack of estrogen was the cause. In actual fact, it was a lack of progesterone all along.
“Estrogen breakthrough bleeding occurs when excess estrogen stimulates the endometrium to proliferate in an undifferentiated manner. With insufficient progesterone to provide structural support, portions of the endometrial lining slough at irregular intervals. The usual progesterone-guided vasoconstriction and platelet plugging do not take place, often resulting in profuse bleeding.” (http://www.aafp.org/afp/1999/1001/p1371.html)
“The lack of progesterone gives rise to unopposed estrogenic stimulation of the endometrium. The excessively thickened endometrium, without progestogenic influence, is unstable and irregular sloughing occurs. In general, the more prolonged the anovulation; greater is the risk of excessive bleeding.” (https://ispub.com/IJGO/4/1/4727)
This means that women spent small fortunes on estrogen therapy for Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding without realizing that they were wasting their time and money. Imagine their dismay as weeks and months of treatment had no effect whatsoever. If you’re reading this, you can be grateful that you now know the secret of defeating DUB.
You could still waste money on expensive progesterone therapy. There are hundreds of drug companies who would love to relieve you of your money (but not your symptoms) by giving you synthetic progesterone. While this form of treatment has its supporters, the bottom line is, synthetic hormones have been exposed as harmful. A Women’s Health Initiative study from 2002 showed conclusively that synthetic hormones dramatically increased the rates of cardiovascular illness and breast cancer (http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/442877_4).
While this was terrible news for synthetic hormone companies, it was not unexpected to people such as us who developed and released Plus Natural Bioidentical Progesterone Cream, an all-natural progesterone treatment to help women replace their use of dangerous synthetic hormone use. Thousands of studies released since 2002 have vindicated our faith in all-natural bioidentical hormones as these studies show that all-natural is more effective than its synthetic counterpart while causing no side effects of note.
It’s little surprise that Plus Natural Progesterone Creams are now one of the hottest tickets in the world of all-natural progesterone creams. If you’re suffering from Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding, you probably have a progesterone deficiency. If this is the case, order 200 daily doses of Plus Natural Bioidentical Progesterone Cream for just $90, apply it to your skin and watch as the symptoms gradually ease off before disappearing altogether.
