Red face - Progesterone buildup no matter what i try Progesterone buildup no matter what i try

Can any of you ladies tell me how you take progesterone every day without it building up and getting side effects. I use an OTC progesterone and I've tried compounded also and I can't seem to be able to take it every day without it building up and causing side effects. Any ideas why? Thanks!!

Re: Progesterone buildup no matter what i try

What side effects? I was using a progesterone cream before surgery because I thought I was having too much estrogen in my system. Now that I don't have any ovaries, I am getting hot flashes but hesitating to use any HRT till I know more about it.

Re: Progesterone buildup no matter what i try

Before I had my TAH I used Emrita Progesterone. You really don't need as much as they prescribe on the tube. Read "Hormone Balance Made Simple" by John Lee. He says you don't need a lot. Sometimes I would just use a tiny dot. Also, make sure you are rotating where you put the cream every day.

Having said that, it's not always necessary to use progesterone cream when you have had your uterus and ovaries removed. Have you tried going without? Are you on prescription estrogen? Progesterone is known to have some difficult side effects and a lot of women can't tolerate it. I would ask your doctor for a recommendation on the progesterone. Hormones can be tricky.

Smile - Progesterone buildup no matter what i try Re: Progesterone buildup no matter what i try

Thanks for responding so quickly. I have tried going without progesterone for 3 months and the first month was fine and then really edgy and not so patient (B....y) snappy attitude. I just felt flat and low mood. I use a miniscule pindot and I rotate sites. I've tried 2x per day, 1X per day. Been on OTC most of the time and recently tried compounded. It seems to build up after 7 or 8 days and then I have to go off. Does it build up for any of you ladies? I've also tried larger doses. I know I need it I just can't figure out how to not get the build up effect. Been trying to balance progesterone for 19 months now. Thanks for the help!!Oh and the side effects are when I start to get a build up I get super energy for 2 or 3 days and then I crash the next day or 2 feeling really bad. So I'm off for a week or so and then start again. Ugh!!
