How should I continue?
I started using progesterone cream more than two months ago. I started with small doses (40 milligrams a day) since I did not know the truth about how much progesterone cream should be used. Fortunately after a few days I found this website and immediately increased the dose. The reason why I stated using natural progesterone cream was that I had had very low level of progesterone for many years (I am 30 now). I was on contraceptive pills for 9 years and I believe that they mess up my hormonal system. Since I stopped taking them I did not get period (for 3,5 years) and in all this time all my hormones were very low (progesterone was 1,2 nmol/l). Yesterday I got the results of blood test which took place 14 days ago and they showed that my progesterone level was 17 nmol/l at that time. I was amazed that it has risen so much. Of course I was very happy that I am not progesterone deficient anymore but on the other hand I am starting to feel a little confused about how to proceed. Right now I am taking 160 milligrams a day (divided in three doses). Should I gradually decrease the dose? I still did not get my period. I would really appreciate some guidelines.
