Continuous use of Progesterone?
(Perth, Australia )
I have started using progesterone cream recently due to spotting after ovulation (7 days before my period) and extremely bad period pain. I have been told I more than likely have endometriosis, however I don’t wish to investigate it further through laparoscopy (ultrasounds have come back fine). I was put on birth control pills at the young age of 13 due to having irregular periods. I’m 23 now and have been off birth control for 2 years. Ever since I got off birth control pills I have had spotting and painful periods, some months being better than others. After some investigation I decided to look into natural progesterone. I spoke to a man here in Perth, Australia from Lawley Pharmaceuticals who manufactures bio identical hormones. He believed that I most definitely had a progesterone deficiency. Anyway, long story short I bought some cream from the US and have just started using it. I am using around a teaspoon in the morning and a teaspoon at night which is a lot more than the recommended dose. I’m thinking about using the cream all through my cycles to begin with to give myself a bit of a break from the extreme pain and hopefully the spotting. Are you able to tell me if this is alright to do and if it will stop my period from coming?
