  • Hi there! I am an avid user of Arbonne products (via my sister in law) and she called me the other day and asked if I'd heard about their Prolief progesterone cream. It is marketed as a natural thing for menopausal women, but a lot of women my age with unexplained infertility have been using it with success.

    I haven't found anything about the dangers of using it. It is premeasured and gives instructions for when to use it and when not to use it, as far as days of your cycle.

    I have to do IUI's and everything has checked out ok, including my progesterone levels, but sometimes i just feel out of whack. I am considering giving it a try and wondered if any of you have used it or had any advice about this kind of stuff. I will be taking clomid and doing an HCG shot, and neither of those contain any progesterone (so no overload or anything). I guess what else have I got to lose?

    Your thoughts?

  • I do have it. I've only used it for a couple of cycles and those two cycles ended in miscarriage (but so did my two previous pregnancies, too). The Prolief had NOTHING to do with the losses.

    It's safe to use but be sure to use it after your IUI (after ovulation), as using it before can mess up your ovulation (even with the trigger shots).

  • Oh! wow I didn't know that! i was told to use it for 3 weeks, then take a break once my period started. so you've used it after ovulation. do you stop once af shows up then, until after ovulation?
