OTC vs Compounded progesterone

Hi ladies,
I'm a little confused. Is there a difference between OTC progesterone cream and compounded progesterone cream(other than the fact that one is a Rx and from a pharmacy) My surgeon said he's done with me and my doctor will take over now.

My doctor is willing to let me try progesterone cream (no estrogen due to endo) but he's not really sure about usual starting dose. He said maybe to start at 50mg/ml and adjust up from there. Just wondering if anyone else is at this dose and how it does for night sweats and sleeping.

Dr. thought OTC might just be lower dosage and did question if the OTC would be the same each tube.
Thanks ladies, this site helps so much!

OTC vs Compounded progesterone

The concentrate level in OTC is quite a bit weaker than the compounded progesterone. Also, most OTC progesterone creams do not contain much progesterone at all.

If you are going to use an OTC progesterone, be sure and use a reputable brand that is standardized with its ingredients. The Hystersisters store carries OTC progesterone in a brand that is recognized by Dr Lee's organization and is a good OTC option. Getting your progesterone at a compounding pharmacy is a very good way of regulating the amount.
