Progesterone Cream Directions for PCOS
Dear Wray, I just purchased a progesterone cream from my health food store. You mention to use 150-250mg for PCOS from Day 14-28. This seems like alot to me since the bottle recommends 15-20mg/day from Day 14-28. Can you explain?
Would you also recommend using a little in the first half of the cycle
Also, would you recommend decreasing the dosage after a few months? I've heard that there may be a "build-up" after a few months.
My story: I have PCOS, have hypo-thyroid-like symptoms (dry eyes, low blood pressure, muscle aches, drying hair, hair now becoming more thin, and emotional ups and downs). I have been tested numerous times for hypothyroidism and all tests come back "normal", very normal. Even tried Synthroid, but had a bad reaction to it. All of this got much, much worse after stopping birth control 1 year ago. I am hoping that some hormonal balance might help some of these symptoms and hopefully allow my husband and I to conceive.
Thank you again for the helpful site!
