Unhappy Light spotting with the natural progesterone cream...

As I've mentioned on here before, I have been taking the naturally compounded progesterone cream for the last few months. I start on day 10 of my cycle and continue to day 23. I started yesterday (my period was over on Tuesday), and I have light spotting this morning. Does anyone else get this and what do you do? Do I need to adjust my dose? Also, does anyone know the side effects of too much Vitex (chasteberry)?

After being on natural progesterone cream by a compounding pharmacist since January of this year I started spotting this month. I started my cream on day 8 and on day 16 I started spotting. I have been spotting now for 11 days. Did you find any info as to why you were spotting? Was it the cream? I would appreciate your input.
Thanks,
Penny

Re: Light spotting with the natural progesterone cream...

No, I never did get any information. I've read all of the books too. I decided to go off the cream for awhile and I'm using alternative methods to balance my hormones. I'm using a flax oil blend of capsules that also has evening primrose in it, my calcium/magnesium tablets and Vitex (chasteberry). So far so good. I do have a few symptoms returning such as joint pain and back aches, but nothing major. I will probably try to go back on the cream this fall and see what happens.
