Progesterone cream and vitex/agnus castus
Hi! I have been taking progesterone cream for many years now and wish to wean down and perhaps look at herbal remedies instead. Is it safe to combine progesterone cream and vitex tablets/drops? If I want to wean myself off the cream altogether, should I use the vitex well before I do that - I think it takes 3 months for the herb to get fully into the systme, but I am not sure? I think I would like to try herbs to see if it can make my body balance itself out instead of just adding progesterone to my system. I am weaning down from over 600mg per day throughout my cycle (now on about 450mg) every day, weaning slowing, and the high doses have left me with even thinner hair, weight gain and breast lumps. I am beginning to think that I need to go down a different route...I started DIM a month ago too. I want to start ovulating again and producing my own progesterone. Any advice about the vitex would be great! Thank you.
