John R. Lee, M.D. treated Fibrocystic breasts successfully with natural progesterone!




The term Fibrocystic Breast Disease refers to a benign (non-cancerous) condition of the breasts and is not really a disease. Women with fibrocystic breasts have dense or fibrous breast tissue which may appear like clumps of grapes when seen on a mammogram.  Often there are soft, moveable lumps that can be felt in the breast tissue.  These can get very tender and even painful around the time of the menstrual period. Fibrocystic breast disease is not a precursor to breast cancer; this is a benign condition even though it is very uncomfortable. Usually the pain and soreness is in the front of the breasts and over the nipples, a sign of high estrogen.  (Pain at the sides of the breasts under the armpits is usually an indication that ovulation has occurred.)


What's going on in your body?

The common factor found in women with fibrocystic breasts is a higher level of circulating estrogen, indicating a hormonal imbalance. Estrogen dominance stimulates the growth of breast tissue and the retention of fluids. Progesterone can help to balance the level of estrogen in the body which reduces breast pain.  Almost all of the women I talked to found that the lumps themselves would disappear!



Progesterone Facts:

- Research showed progesterone can relieve 95% of breast pain from fibrocystic breasts.

- The active ingredient diosgenin (from the wild yam) increases circulating progesterone levels to balance the effects of excess estrogen.





In most women we talk to, fibrocystic breasts respond to progesterone therapy in about 3-4 months, but relief can occur within the first month because breast tissue is extremely sensitive to hormones.


Dr. John Lee, an expert in bio-identical hormones noticed that his patients with fibrocystic breast were often estrogen dominant (high levels of estrogen and low progesterone). In his experience, using natural progesterone routinely solved the problem. He also recommended adding Vitamin E, magnesium and vitamin B6.

Dr. Lee suggests using 1/8-1/4 tsp twice daily from day 12 of the monthly cycle to day 26.

Once the cysts have cleared up, the dose of progesterone can be reduced to the smallest dose that is still effective each month and continue the treatment as needed through menopause. This type of treatment is safe, inexpensive, successful and natural!

"I cannot recall a case in which the result (from treatment) was not positive."

John Lee, M.D.
