Many women are uncomfortable talking about their period. It’s “gross” or considered a topic better left to “girl time.” Well, I’m breaking the rules because ~WARNING~ this post will have some “period talk.”
The feminist in me can’t stand that this is such a forbidden topic, but that’s a rant for another day. Let’s just say that I don’t bother editing myself just because the guys are around. Periods are important! They become even more important when you suddenly stop having one.
Hormone imbalances have gone hand-in-hand with my Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis so I’m no stranger to labs containing testosterone, progesterone, estrogen, etc. My poor body was dealing with Hashimoto’s + Adrenal Fatigue + Birth control (for 5 yrs) + Stress so of course my hormones were a mess! One of my doctors even told me, “Birth control gives a false positive, but you’re on birth control and you only had .02 testosterone. That’s not good. You have virtually zero testosterone in your body.” I’ve had numbers all over the charts. I was falsely comforted by regular periods, thanks to my daily pill, but reality set in when I decided to get off of birth control.
I knew it would be a tough road, getting back to a balanced, monthly cycle. I tried to be prepared and even had my doctor set me up with some herbs to assist my body during the process & hopefully ease me quickly back into a normal cycle. Well, 1.5 years later and I was still battling inconsistency. I would go months with no period, then get one, then skip a month. I never knew when it was coming. It was frustrating & also nerve wracking for a 24 yr old woman who eventually wanted children. No period = no kids. I knew I needed to figure something out.
That’s when I finally tried Young Living’s Progessence Plus Serum. My doctor initially put me on an oral progesterone supplement to help with my insomnia (thank you adrenal fatigue). I didn’t like the synthetic option and decided to switch to Progessence Plus to see how I felt. I already loved essential oils for thyroid support, so I wanted to see how this product could help me.
Initially, I was only watching for insomnia symptoms but I ended up with a much better surprise! It did make me sleepy at night, but more importantly it started regulating my periods. At first I thought it was just a few regular months & waited for the inevitable “skip a month” phase. Six months later I realized that I had developed a perfectly regular cycle. For the first time in my life I could predict when my period would come! This has continued for about 10 months now without any hiccups.
So, how did I use it?
I started slow & never found a need to increase much. I only use 2 drops each night before bed; I simply rub them on my carotid. Sometimes if I am having PMS symptoms that are driving me crazy I may add 1-2 drops for a few days to help alleviate those but in general I stick to my prized 2 drops.
If you’re trying Progessence Plus it’s usually best to start slow and increase as needed. That goes for most things in life 🙂
My fabulous bottle last me months this way and keeps things happy in my body. No more panic about pregnancy & future children because my periods don’t show up. After years of hormonal challenges, it’s nice to have one thing that’s dependable every month.
Women use Progessence Plus for many different things: PMS symptoms, hot flashes, irregular periods, endometriosis, infertility, the list goes on!

*A side note on birth control ~ I highly recommend finding another method of preventing pregnancy if you’re on the pill. There are too many serious consequences that damage your body to make it worth it. Do your own research but please consider other options.
