I have started using higher levels of my compounded progesterone cream (not Natpro, though I'd like to try it when its back in stock) due to what I've read on this website. I was having lots of problems going through the beginnings of menopause and I've got to say that increasing the amount of progesterone has been a lifesaver to me.
I talked to my nurse practitioner who is providing me with hormone prescriptions and told her what I've read on this site and how I've increased my dosage (she initially had me on 25 mg and then bumped me up to 50mg per day. I'm now taking one pump immediately upon waking, another before I leave for work and another before I go to bed - 150mg). She said that its OK for now but when I get my next PAP smear, we should want to be careful that there are no abnormally shaped cells because high amounts of progesterone could cause this, which could lead to cancer. Just wanted to find out if you have an answer to this, as I did find it concerning. Thank you
