need clarification on amount of progesterone per teaspoon

Hello,

The chart I received with the cream says that 3 ml = 100 mg = .6 tsp.

So this means that 1/2 tsp is a little over 100 mg, and 1 tsp is a little over 200 mg.

But in reading some replies by Wray on this site, sometimes the amount is different. In one post someone wanted to give her mom 1/2 tsp in the am and 1 tsp in the pm, and Wray said that would be around 250mg. But wouldn't that be closer to 300 mg, since each 1/2 tsp has 100 mg?

There are some other examples of this as well, I just haven't bookmarked them and I don't remember them as clearly as the example above. Just making sure that 1/2 teaspoon really has 100 mg. Thank you!

Karen

Hi Karen That's correct, the 3ml = 100 mg = .6 tsp. A standard teaspoon is 5ml, so 3ml is 3/5th of a teaspoon. 1/2tsp is 2.5ml which is less than 3ml. 1ml of cream contains 33.3mg progesterone So 1/2tsp contains 83.25mg progesterone. Hope this helps. Take care Wray
