From 1998 over three years, some 7,000+ postcards and Reply Paid news article features have been signed and returned to the Health Minister of Western Australia -firstly Mr Prince and then Mr Day.
In November 1999 Jenny flew to WA to meet with the Health Minister, Mr Day, to discuss the desperate situation faced by women outside Western Australia. Dr Daycancelled his appointment with Jenny at the last minute. This appointment had beenbooked 3 months prior, and Jenny had flown across Australia specifically to representwomen in need of access to a reliable manufactured progesterone cream (Jenny’sattempts to meet with Mr Day in August 1998 were repeatedly overturned).
In Mr Day’s absence and Jenny’s refusal to leave without being heard, a meeting was granted with two health officials and a female solicitor.The meeting turned into a cross-examination of how women were sourcing progesterone cream on the black market,and questions insinuating misconduct on the part of Michael Buckley, the manufacturerof Pro-Feme. Not to be bullied, Jenny insisted that they get back on track and discusswhat she came there for - women’s hormonal health. The Western Australiangovernment was made very aware on the day that they held the key to help fast-tracka manufactured progesterone cream to all Australian women. At the conclusion of theirmeeting, officials made light of the Grandfathering Provision and their power to helpwomen, going on to state that the matter belonged with TGA.
Just prior to the re-election of the State Government (end of 2000), material was being drafted in preparation to align WA drug laws with Australian Federal drug laws (allstates within Australia would eventually have to comply). Tragically, around the sametime, the existing Grandfathering Provision Act was overturned at Federal level. Thismove was initiated under the influence of the WA government, or at least this is whatwe have been led to believe.
If it wasn’t such a big deal, then why did WA government officials enlighten Federal government of the loopholes of getting the product through faster using theGrandfathering Provision Act? Why, if they were in a position to help women, did theygo out of their way to do the opposite? Jenny sensed there was some form of personal vendetta or perhaps they were a mouthpiece for someone else. Upon reflection, one would have to question whetherblocking the Grandfathering Provision Act, influenced by WA government officials, wassour grapes, political interests, palms crossed with silver, or outright sabotage ofwomen’s health. Whatever the reason - cynical, imagined or unfounded - the bottomline is, women are still suffering and women’s health continues to be a low priority.
What is there to be gained by crushing a one-man pharmaceutical company who has invested every dollar he has in progesterone trials, when no other person or drugcompany or compounding pharmacist today in this country has been prepared to dolikewise (because it’s a non-patentable drug).
Without access to the Grandfathering Provision Act, the submission to TGA with trials will be far more stringent, time-consuming, more financially draining, andsubsequent delays may take their toll.
NATURAL PROGESTERONE-THE WORLD’S BEST KEPT SECRET Interestingly, the manufacturer of Pro-Feme has been granted an export license.This means theoretically you can legally import your Australian manufactured Pro-Femecream from overseas, but you cannot buy it legally within Australia, except in WesternAustralia without employing certain loopholes and you must hold a script.
Coincidentally, around the time Jenny met with the Health Minister’s off-siders, a reinforcing circulation from the WA Health Ministry was issued to all WA pharmacists(chemists) that they would incur a $40,000 fine if they were caught trading Pro-Femeinterstate.
The manufacturer of Pro-Feme has realised how little regard government has for women’s health and, for reasons of self-preservation, has focused trials on testosteronebecause clearly men hold the power.
In retrospect, had testosterone been the pilot, I believe that women would already have Pro-Feme, (already in the doctor’s manual), on the pharmacists’ shelves throughoutAustralia. A case in point, Viagra was one of the fastest tracked drug through legislationfor market approval under pressure (from where?).
NPAN and the women collectively have supplied many doctors’ packs and information packs on natural progesterone. Jenny and her organisation has handed outand lost hundreds of videos, books, and The Late Dr. John Lee tapes and have suppliedinformation, doctors’ lists, compounding pharmacists’ lists all around the country, manyof which have been sadly exploited and abused.
In providing women with a list of empathetic doctors willing to write scripts, these doctors were in turn harassed by some compounding pharmacists promoting theircreams. This reflected badly on NPAN’s professionalism and integrity and NPAN andJenny were unjustifiably judged on many occasions for others’ misconduct.
Update from Jenny
NPAN has seen a few publications use the organisation’s resources and portray it as a free resource network. While I support most of these endeavours, I have been placedin a very embarrassing and costly position because women have simply assumed I amfunded, that I provide free information packs, and that NPAN fills the gap that thepublications have failed to address.
They fail to understand that NPAN is not a government-funded resource centre. Nor do I derive any kick-backs from the authors of these books, compounding pharmacistsor prescribing doctors. Rather, I have given information and support out of love withoutthought of monetary gain, my time at the helm of NPAN as been completely voluntaryin the past but due to shortage of funding I’ve been forced to charge for consultancywhich ultimately means I can reach out and help more women.

Women fight for the right to choose healthcare
Australian women are suffering unnecessary pain, anguish, invasive medical operations and depression because politicians are too busy to change a simple law.
They agreed to pass new legislation ten years ago, but say they have more pressing matters. Obviously women’s health is not important to them! During this time women outside Western Australia have had no access to reliable quantities of natural progesterone therapies to treat debilitating hormone problemsincluding premenstrual tension and menopause.
The lives of our sisters, daughters and mothers have been made a misery because our male politicians are ‘too busy’ to care.
Australian women are being treated as second class citizens by uncaring politicians.
Please, help us to get them to do something NOW.
A natural progesterone cream called Pro-Feme is made in WA under pharmaceutical conditions and supplied on prescription by WA doctors.
Pro-Feme is the only pharmaceutically manufactured progesterone made in Australia. Applied as a cream, its progesterone replaces the missing progesterone in awoman’s body. A deficiency in progesterone causes the debilitating symptoms ofmenopause, Endometriosis, Uterine Fibroids, Ovarian Cysts and depression.
The drug progesterone has liberated tens of thousands of women around the world from their pain and anguish and returned their wellbeing. It is a safe drug which isavailable over the counter in the US.
Desperate Australian women, fed up with being unable to treat hormonal symptoms properly, are resorting to buying progesterone on the black market fromoverseas and are administering it without medical supervision.
When doctors were worried that men would buy the sex drug Viagra on the black market, politicians worked in record time to pass the drug so that men could obtain itunder medical supervision.
Are men’s sex lives more important than a woman’s quality of life? Why should women be treated as second class citizens? Our pleas for change have fallen on politicians’ deaf ears for two years. We need your help! The WA Government is finally considering passing the long-delayed legislation that will allow progesterone cream to be available. Australia-wide.

Authorised by: Natural Progesterone Advisory Network These political activities were examples of extensive lobbying and campaign work instigated and conducted by Jenny Birdsey involving thousands of women in 1998,1999 and 2000. Some 7000 plus reply paid postcards were distributed and sent back toMr Day by myself on behalf of NPAN. A handful were officially returned.
POLITICAL WORK INSTIGATED & CONDUCTED BY NPAN, JENNY BIRDSEY Grievance of inaccessability to WA’s manufactured cream
This is an example of a letter written by an angry and concerned woman.
Placed in the paper along with others.
Supply: Why Can’t I Get It Here?
Extract from a letter published in newsprint complaining about the drug law discrepancies between states Because of a state/federal discrepancy in the Therapeutic Goods Act, I no longer can buy natural progesterone (a hormone cream) from Western Australia.
Doctors put women on hormone replacement therapy – the fashion in medicine today – but it is wrong to overload us with estrogen and create more health problemswhen it is natural progesterone in which menopausal women are deficient.
Which politician (probably male) doesn’t want me to practice preventative medicine so that I will not lose bone density and fracture my hip, get Breast Cancer or cervicalcancer or have to take days off with migraines? I was paying for my own continued health. Heroin addicts who have robbed, abused, violated society to support their illegal habits are given methadone and now heroin.
Why? For their good health? I can’t get natural progesterone made from yams. Is it because it’s secret women’s business? Is it because pharmaceutical companies have vested interests? Has WA seceded? Are WA women worth more than women in the eastern states? – Ann, (Eastern States Aus.) August 9 ’98.
