September, 2020 seem to be only French, German and Swiss at the moment.
The domain seems to have been restored after being down part of 2021, but I have my suspicions, 20220915, that it has been "taken over" by an anti-progesterone organisation as it is now advertising Premarin and the like. I believe this would have been very unlikely if the "original site authors" were still in charge of the site.

http://tubal.org//hormonetesting.htm Hufnagel”s Baseline Hormone Profile Protocol
Since the 80”s Dr. Hufnagel has lobbied and advocated for baseline hormone testing not only for post tubal ligation and sterilized women but for ALL women as a standard of care to promote hormone health.
Hufnagell”s protocol directs baseline hormone testing for ALL women starting at age twenty-five as a standard screening test in the same way that mammograms are for women at age forty. ...
The following quote is taken from 95_Miriam Brazel ... ; the original link was http://www.ylcf.org/goodhealth/hormone-imbalance/05.htm
Progesterone is the precursor to other hormones. If there is not enough progesterone produced each month, all the other hormone levels will become either too high or too low. The whole system will become unbalanced causing problems of all sorts throughout the body." (Hormone Imbalance: The Mysterious Illness by Miriam Brazel)
"Due to faulty diets, decreased nutrients in our foods and the stress that we experience, most women have reduced levels of all hormones, but especially progesterone. We are exposed to numerous xeno-estrogens (certain chemicals in the environment that have effects on the body similar to estrogen). Keep in mind that health problems arise from not only the estrogen itself, but from imbalance resulting from a deficiency in progesterone."
Every woman should read:

http://www.medical-library.net/ ... and search for progesterone
Originally, progesterone was only available through suppositories and injections. In 1979, it became available in a cosmetic cream, which allowed for absorption through the skin. Progesterone is well tolerated and absorbed through the skin as is seen with other hormones, such as testosterone, scopolamine, and estrogen.
Progesterone is also available in oral, cream and gel micronized forms. Only progesterone creams marketed as cosmetics provide progesterone without a prescription. It's important when purchasing a progesterone cream product that progesterone is listed on the label. Many companies today are producing "wild yam" creams that contain a concentrated extract of wild yam, Dioscorea villosa. Wild yam contains substances that can be converted to natural progesterone in a laboratory; however, the body does not have the ability to convert wild yam extract into progesterone. Because neither oral nor skin applications of wild yam extracts can affect progesterone levels in the body, they are not effective substitutes for natural progesterone supplementation.
