Hormonal breakouts

by Leah
(Australia)

I was wondering if you can use progesterone cream once a day continuously or it is important to only use the 14 days before menstruation?

I have breakouts which are hormone related all the time not just before menstruation so was wondering if using the cream everyday would be worth trying as well or if it's best to stick to it only the recommended time? Thanks.

Hi Leah. You can use the cream continuously, it's safe to do so. But if you do have a cycle you could find it's disrupted. But please also take 100mg/day zinc, Solgar make a good one. Theirs is 22mg/tablet, so take 5 per day. You'll need to do this for about 1-3 months, maybe longer, then reduce it to the normal 15mg/day indefinitely. Stress exacerbates acne, the progesterone is very calming, as it activates the GABA receptor sites. GABA is one of our most calming neurotransmitters, so it should help with any stress you have. Please try to get a taurine cream to apply to your face, this has been found to help, if it contains vitamin B3, B5 and D3 even better. Take care, Wray
