I would appreciate information from some of my hysterfriends in regard to what the average dosage is for progesterone cream. :confuse: Just an idea of what some of you are using in mg's and how often. I appreciate all of you, and the wisdom that you have to offer!
I use a 5% compounded progesterone cream, .5ml 1x per day. That's my current dose, but it isn't what my dose has always been. When I first started the progesterone I was usiing a 20% cream, 1ml 2x per day. At one point I was using 3x per day to maintain an even level throughtout the day. As my hormones began to settle down, I was gradually able to cut back my dose to what I am currently using. I think I've been on this same dose for quite some time now.
Do keep in mind that everyone is different. What I am using may not work the same for you.
Good question TJ. I just started using the creme and I was a little confused with the directions. I still have mini periods every month so I'm using the ovulating schedule. But since this is my first time I am only using 1/2 the recommended dose. Next week I will move up to the full dose. My creme contains 480 mg per oz. So right now I use 1/4 tsp once a day right before I go to bed at night.
So its just like Kim said, everyone is different.
I'm so sorry that I confused you. Yes, we all use progesterone creams. Kim uses one that is made by a compounding pharmacy specifically for her. I use one that is over-the-counter. I think Shera's might be OTC, too.
