Question about Yam Cream
Dear Wray, I was using your cream for about 3 or more months and really liked it. Then I went to a gynecologist who said he deals with women's health.
He did progesterone/estrogen blood work and determined I needed 1/4 tsp of 75 mg/gm natural progeterone cream from a compounded pharmacy. So I switched from your cream to this compounded cream. I have not been feeling as good on it and called the pharmacy to find out what the progesterone is derived from. They said it is a powder chemical progesterone derived from a yam. They said it is not a progestin.
Can you tell me what the progesterone in your cream is derived from and your thoughts about progesterone derived from yam?
Also, I would like to go back to using your cream because quite frankly I just feel better on it and am disappointed I made the switch. But I trusted this doctor knew better than I. Can you tell me how I would make that conversion and if I can just switch or if I need to make a gradual transition. Thanks so much for all your help.
