Progesterone cream side effect?

Wondering if anyone has used progesterone cream for premenopause symptoms and had any side effects?
I've used about 1/4 tsp per day for the past several months and found it to be helpful. However, for the past several weeks I've had increasing problems with backaches and wonder if it might be related?
Thanks! Dinah

Re: Progesterone cream side effect?

Hi Dinah,

I use an over the counter progesterone cream, but have not had any side effects with it. I haven't heard any other posts about backache while using the cream. Have you done anything strenuous that may have pulled your back out of whack? Sometimes I twist in my sleep and that does it.

Hope you feel better soon and hang in there maybe someone will post something.

Re: Progesterone cream side effect?

Ive been taken Progesterone now for over a month. I had hot flashes,fibromyalgia, insomina, I was down for the count. I went to see this wonderful Dr in Palm Springs Ca i'm now free of everything and even lost 10lbs I never had any side affects to date yet. I was on HRT for over 10 years and most likely lucky I didn't get cancer that I know of taken those drugs plus I was taken sleeping pills for over 3 years I couldn't sleep a wink without them. Now I sleep like a baby I never in my live I have left in this world did i think I would every be ok again but this Dr proved it to me. I hope your side affects go away as they have been for me. I do believe you need the right Dr who knows what he's doing also. in Sunny Calif
