Re: Who uses natural progesterone cream?
I tried an over-the-counter cream and had terrible problems with it (very heavy and irregular bleeding). I am now taking a compounded progesterone tablet, along with compounded estrogen, and have seen quite an improvement. The progesterone has really helped with my insomnia, and is helping some with depression/anxiety, while the estrogen is helping with hot flashes.
You have to have a doctor's prescription, along with bloodwork, and find a compounding pharmacy, but it is well worth the effort. Some pharmacies offer the hormones in tablet form and others use creams.
