Progesterone cream / oil can balance out small loads of xenoestrogens. However, progesterone combined with large loads of xenoestrogens can temporarily make you worse.
Xenoestrogens simply means foreign estrogens. "Xeno" mean foreign, and "estrogen" means the hormone estrogen. They are also known as hormone disrupters, environmental estrogens, phytoestrogens (plant estrogens), or chemical estrogens. They may be synthetic like atrazine, a common weed killer. They may be natural and organic like the herb lavender.
However, bottom line they sort of act like your own estradiol, but they are NOT at all like estradiol. For instance, estradiol may increase sex drive or libido. However, many xenoestrogens kill sex drive or libido. They have estrogen like effects, but are NOT estradiol (your own natural estrogen). Since they are not estradiol, xenoestrogens do not appear on the laboratory blood or saliva test. It is your own estradiol in synergy with xenoestrogens that makes you sick.
This synergistic effect of your own estradiol and xenoestrogens make PMS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, breast cysts, and uterine cramping vary with the cycle.
