Sublingual Progesterone? Anyone Use This Method?

So Bioidentical Progesterone Cream and Me are not meshing well at all.

Not to mention for some reason my dog won't come near me after I put it on, and then I worry about transferring it to her.

So I searched here and googles sublingual and found a few sites that say Sublingual in a base of Alcohol is the best way of taking Progesterone as it is rapidly absorbed.

So went back to my awesome compounding pharmacy, best one in the city, and was told they do make it but they do it in a base of Safflower oil. YUCK!

So I called the only other 2 compounding pharmacies in the city and they both also make it in a base of oil, one almond, the other your choice of sunflower or variety of others.

So why are the pharmacies not using a base of alcohol??? Seems like it would be absorbed way easier that way, and most homeopathic drops are in a base of alcohol.

Does anyone here take Progesterone Sublingually??? If so what is in yours as the base??? Do you have in compounded locally or order it???

I'd rather go with a local trusted place, but the oil route just doesn't sound pleasant. Especially if I'm going to be taking a couple of drops a few times a day.

On another post someone told me they had a relative who took oral Progesterone, but I can't go the swallowing in pill form route because I have a mast cell problem and we do whatever it takes to avoid things having to go through my liver.

Thanks for any advice!!!

I used sublingual progesterone for awhile many years ago. I don't recall what the base was, but the flavor was tutti frutti. They were so yummy that I actually looked forward to my morning and afternoon dose. They were little gummy squares that I would put either under my tongue or between by cheek and gum and slowly let them dissolve.

Hi Kim,

Thanks for this info. Do you remember if you ordered these or if they were made locally for you?

I think I'm going to ask for a Troche as the oil base just sounds so gross.

I called and asked the 3 compounding pharmacies here about the oil or alcohol and was told that they don't use alcohol as the suspension because it gets to the liver too fast that way.

Maybe I'll get lucky and a progesterone patch will be put out on the market this coming Monday!!!!

The pharmacy gave me other cream choices but I just can't deal with my dog avoiding me because she smells something funny.

UGH, must everything be complicated!

Ooops, I assumed when you said sublingual that you meant troches as you were working with a Compounding Pharmacy. That is what I was using years ago.

Well my compounding pharmacy can do the Troches but they more often do the sublingual drops in an oil base.

The troches sound better, so maybe I'll ask them how they prepare theirs. Flavor, base ingredients, etc.

thanks for the help, hugs and smiles
