If you're a woman at "that age," this balancing cream may help. I use 1/4 tsp. 2x a day on days 8-26. I was skeptical, but actually had pretty good results. Not sure if it was coincidence or not, but it's worth the try. I'm not crazy about the smell of this lotion, but the smell doesn't last. It's supposed to be unscented, but it's not. It's not unpleasant at all, just not to my liking. The smell fades almost immediately.

This cream was recommended by my mother years ago. I started using it when I hit 40 and I would not do without it now. It is the best woman's secret!

I read several hundred reviews all over the web before purchasing this. It has worked for me so far with my fatigue and Swanson has it at a fraction of the price elsewhere.

This is an exceptional product. Emerita Pro-Gest is available in a two ounce size and a four ounce size tube as well as individual 1/4 teaspoon size packets which are great for travel and vacations. I discovered this product from several of Suzanne Somer's books and Dr. John R. Lee's book "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause: The Breakthrough Book on Natural Progesterone". What a lifesaver!! Definitely notice a HUGE difference since I started using it!! I didn't know that that the Progeserone creams are more effective if appled on the mucous membranes. So, I will also use a tiny amount with my facial moisturizers as well. I'm always learning more all of the time.

Pro-Gest Natura Balancing Cream
Emerita Pro-Gest is available in a two ounce size and a four ounce size tube. I purchased the four ounce size because for a little over $6 I received twice as much product - a no brainer. After previously using the Source Naturals Natural Progesterone Cream which contained soy I was pleased to find the Emerita Pro-Gest without it. Comparing the ingredients of the two products Emerita Pro-Gest wins hands down. I learned that soy is not a good thing for one's body whether applied topically or ingested with the exception of eating fermented soy. See Dr. Mercola's website for further information. I also learned that the Progeserone creams are more effective if appled on the mucous membranes. I use a tiny amount with my facial moisturizers as well.

Worth waiting for
I used to purchase this at my local Health Food Store, but found I could get it for almost 50% OFF by ordering it through Swanson!! So easy and so time saving!!

I will keep purchasing
I like this product. I use it as a moisturizer on my face. And, I like the benefits that progesterone provides. Emerita is a brand that I trust and it does not contain any parabens.

Pro-Gest has been the best progesterone-based cream I can find. Definitely notice a adifference since I started using it. I have recommended it to many women - as it was recommended to me.

Best I've Tried
I have used products from Emerita for many years. Their quality is reliable. This is very effective and helpful for the times you need to use it. There is a lot of information out there to support using some natural progesterone in the later years of life.

So far so good
Just new to using this product. So still in the self testing phase. Price was right though.

This is an exceptional product. It works just as advertised.

Emerita is my preferred brand over all the others. I like that it is in a tube and not a measured pump. I think this is an excellent product and was recommended in Dr. John Lee's books. A very good price by ordering from Swanson as well.

no help for me
I tried this for 2 months following directions precisely. this did not help with PMS, mood, anything. I am peri-menopausal, levels are dipping, I know that. My cycle is regular, have no hot flashes, but hella PMS. Better nutrition, evening primrose, and gobs of magnesium have helped the most.

Excellent product. Swanson's offers the best price - Thank you!!

a must have for women!
This product has helped me so much and I recommend it to most women I know. Get dr. John R. Lee's book to educate yuorself on natural progesterone. Emerita is the company all studies were done with and the cream is very pure with not alot of additives. too bad it's not in a pump form, but I don't mind measuring in a spoon

I have used this product for two years. It is a high quality product, easy to apply, absorbs quickly. It comes in two sizes, however the 4oz. is convenient. I would and do recommend this product. Thank You Swanson.

My favorite brand
I have used this product for years. I've had to try several other brands, when I could not find a local retailer who carried this, but prefer Emerita. The quality is consistent, never greasy, no scent, and absorbs quickly. The larger sizes offered here are more affordable than the small packages sold in local stores. This is one of the few supplements that I REALLY miss if I run out.

I've been using this product for years. Has helped keep me sane. It can two or three weeks to kick in, but it's wonderful once it does. I have tried other brands, but this is the one that is most effective for me.
