Yam cream wreaked havoc on our hormones

MagazineJuly 2003 (Vol. 14 Issue 4)Yam cream wreaked havoc on our hormones

Progesterone in yam cream has had adverse effects on myself and an acquaintance

Progesterone in yam cream has had adverse effects on myself and an acquaintance. It took us both months to sort out our hormones after discontinuing use. I was also advised to take 2 tbsp of flax oil a day (I only took one) and 1 tbsp of flax seed. After doing this for four or five months, my breasts were still sore and my groin was aching.

After seeing in your article on essential fats (WDDTY vol 14 no 2) that these are phytoestrogens and that long-term use of fish oil increases the risk of breast cancer, I immediately discontinued all these fats. Everything settled down and felt 'normal' again. - S. Dawson, Richmond
