Prometrium use topically
I am new to the topical progesterone world. Am weaning myself off of HRT. I currently have over 100 (100mg) prometrium pills and am wondering how to use them most effectively.
If they are micronized progesterone (for oral use), why can't they be used topically instead? They are a milky liquid inside a gelcap. It would be very very easy to drop them into a lowdose progesterone cream. It just doesn't make sense to me to toss them, they were expensive!! I understand that taking them orally is much less effective than topically.
Can anyone give me any info on whether this can be done and how the 100mgs in the gelcap translates into transdermal mgs. Would a compounding pharmacist have this info?
Will order my future progesterone here and keep up to date on the new info. What great info and service you are doing!
