Does Provestra Really Work? An Uncensored and Unrestricted Review on Its Disadvantages

I have been asking the question “Does provestra really work?” for more times than I could ever care to count when I was in my lowest point in life.

As a nurse, I knew I could treat my low libido problem with medicines and expensive treatments but I decided to go all natural. Follow along and I will tell you about it.

I must warn you though; this short review will cover the good things as well as the bad ones. So if you’re not looking for this kind of review, you might as well be better off moving along.

When I was at my all time lowest point in life, the problem of having low female libido really affected me to the point of having at least an inch away from having marital break-up. I knew my family, my future and my kids will be affected so I finally decided to do something about it.

I researched the internet and print magazines for female libido enhancers. I tried a brand called Hersolution which was a gel, but it wasn’t that effective. I also tried a product called Nymphomax which I blamed for my subsequent headaches. Along the way, I tested five products and none of them was effective enough.

I was about to give up on everything. I was so desperate that I asked my senior colleagues about my problem and ask them for advice. One of them, a Filipino nurse colleague of mine recommended Provestra.

After a couple of days using it, I really noticed the huge difference in my mood. I was always “game”. When my husband and I tried doing it the first time after a few weeks of disengagements, he was surprised to say the least. The change in me was dramatic, on and off the bedroom.

So here are some downsides of this product:

-It should have been better if it came in smaller tablets. This product came in a rather large pill which made me get a half filled glass of water each time I take it.

-Although on a personal level, I would’ve wanted Provestra to be much more advertised so more women will know about it. All women should be spared from the burden I once had.

– It should have come in bigger packs. I wanted to get a bigger pack that can last for at least 3 months, but they don’t have it. So stacking your supplies ahead of time will be wise.

ABIM Exam Review: How to Work Up Hirsutism

Hirsutism is excessive androgen-dependent body or facial hair that is present in females. Six main causes of hirsutism that can be tested on the ABIM Internal Medicine Board Exam include:

  • Idiopathic hirsutism
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Cushing’s disease
  • Adrenal carcinoma
  • Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH)

Idiopathic hirsutism is a diagnosis of exclusion (when all of the above causes of hirsutism have been ruled out).

Basically, hirsutism workup is broken down into conditions with high testosterone level or high 17 OH steroid (DHEA-S) levels. First we will discuss the conditions with high testosterone levels:

High testosterone level conditions that cause hirsutism:

  • PCOS
  • Ovarian cancer

Patients with PCOS will have high testosterone levels but will also have an LH:FSH ratio that is elevated (usually more than 3:1).

Ovarian cancer will have extremely high testosterone levels. The diagnosis of ovarian cancer can be made by doing a trans-vaginal ultrasound or CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis to look for an ovarian mass.

High 17 OH steroid (DHEA-S) levels that causes hirsutism:

  • Cushing’s disease
  • Adrenal carcinoma
  • Congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH)

With Cushing’s disease, the problem lies in the anterior pituitary. This will lead to elevated DHEA-S levels, increased ACTH levels, and increased cortisol levels

With Adrenal carcinoma, the problem lies in the adrenal gland. This obviously will lead to increased DHEA-S levels. There will also be increased cortisol levels in patients with adrenal carcinoma. The increased cortisol from the adrenal carcinoma will have a negative feedback on the anterior pituitary, which will lead to a suppressed ACTH level.

With CAH, the main enzyme that is deficient is 21 beta hydroxylase. With this enzyme being deficient, production of cortisol is decreased. Since cortisol level is decreased, the negative feedback mechanism to the anterior pituitary will be to have increased ACTH levels. Obviously DHEA-S levels will be elevated. Additionally, patients with CAH will have elevated 17 OH progesterone levels.

High yield fact to remember for the ABIM Internal Medicine Board Exam: Adrenal adenoma does NOT produce elevated DHEA-S levels; therefore, it is NOT a cause of hirsutism. It, however, does share some similar properties of adrenal carcinoma and some similar properties of CAH. Like adrenal carcinoma, adrenal adenoma will have increased cortisol levels and a suppressed ACTH level due to the negative feedback to the anterior pituitary. Like CAH, adrenal adenoma will have elevated 17 OH progesterone levels.

This is the basic workup of hirsutism that is required to know for the ABIM Internal Medicine Board Exam.

Clevastin Review – How Well Does It Work?

Various hormonal imbalances often have an affect and inhibit the natural growth of the mammary glands (the breasts), thus reducing breast size and fullness. Many different herbs have been found to expand the size and fullness of women’s breasts as well as improve the overall balance of the woman’s body. One such herbal based product to enter the market place claiming to increase breast size and fullness is Clevastin. The product has been creating a lot of buzz lately with ads appearing all over the women’s magazines and on television touting the benefits of the product.

Is Clevastin really that effective? Can it work for you? Let’s take a closer look at the Clevastin product in an attempt to answer these questions.

Clevastin is made by Meadow Creek Laboratories, a nutraceutical company that has a long history of making well-known high quality products. First off, I should say that I’ve tried each and every product they make, and found them to be class-leading in almost all categories.

So what’s in Clevastin? Clevastin is a proprietary phytoestrogenic blend of special herbs and high quality botanicals which includes the powerful breast growth enhancement products black cohosh, known for it’s hormone stabilizing abilities, L-Tyrosine, which is excellent for promoting the synthesis and generation of healthy new breast tissue, Wild Yam, a well known breast enhancement product dating back to earlier centuries for it’s hormone balancing properties, and several other key herbs and natural compounds that work together to promote breast expansion. Additionally, Clevastin’s all natural proprietary blended formula includes:

Saw Palmetto: Saw palmetto is a remarkable herb for both men and women. It is now a popular and effective treatment for prostate enlargement in men but has it’s origins in natural medicine as a breast enlarger and is still recommended today by naturopathic physicians for increasing breast size.

Damiana: Damiana has been used in folk medicine for centuries. Most notably, it has a reputation for being an aphrodisiac, a substance that heightens sexual desire and enhances sexual performance. It is also recognized for its’ ability to restore the bodies vital energy, treat hormone imbalances, and improve poor mammary gland development.

Dong Quai: Dong quai is a Chinese herb used primarily to relieve menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, reduce menstrual cramps, and assist in breast enlargement. The active constituents of Dong Quai are Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, Nicotinic Acid, and Ferulic Acid. Because Dong Quai contains these constituents there is scientific rationale for improvements in anemia, PMS, irregular menses, and other menstrual complaints.

Clinical studies have shown that the herbal components found in the Clevastin product can start a reaction similar to those that occur during puberty, when women’s breast tissue starts to grow. These herbs deliver plant estrogen, which stimulates the growth of the delicate breast tissue from inside by causing hormonal changes. Plant estrogen, as scary and medicinal as it sounds, is a natural product derived from plants and is quite mild.

In the end, I find Clevastin to be an extremely exceptional product, which can help users meet their goals and exceed them-easily and effectively. As with most other herbal breast enhancement products, this product will yield the best results when used for a full six months (not to exceed nine months at a time on any product), and while adhering to a balanced diet that may be supplemented with evening primrose oil and 1,000 mg. of vitamin C to help maximize results. Clevastin offers a non-surgical solution to attaining fuller, firmer breasts with the help of a balanced combination of natural ingredients.
