Hi Ann,
USP progesterone is good If it doesn't say that than it is probably nothing more than wild yam. OTC Progesterone may be derived from wild yam, but you certainly could not bake some yams and slather them on your skin to get the same effect. There is a conversion process made in the lab. I don't really really know the technicalities of it all.

My doctor prescribed Teva-Medroxyprogesterone (Teva would be a brand name?) and it says it's made from soy beans?????

I don't know a lot about this stuff and I'm interested in finding out more too!

My gyn does not do bios. He says they are altered anyhow (in a lab, as mentioned) which makes them pharma and no different. I may try to seek out another dr (if I can get one) to do bios!
