I feel so stupid... yesterday I found myself in my health food store without a list, with a faulty memory, I bought soy lecithin, nettle leaf, Vitex and Astragalus (Is this the correct one?). I have been using a progestrone cream Emerita's Pro-Gest for the last 5 years - not as much or as regularly as the directions. Hv's posts have convinced me that there are much better ways to balance hormones.
These will work. The lecithin is not for hormones, but has a lot of beneficial properties for the body.
The vitex (chaste tree berry) is the one that raises progesterone, but it takes several months to kick in.
The nettle and astragalus will support the adrenals, which also produce the sex hormones.
