The Pill & Progesterone

Hi Wray, Is it possible to take progesterone while on the pill? If the pill stops the body from producing progesterone that can't be good. Is there any solution other than to stop taking the pill ? I am concerened for my daughters.

Hi Robyn I'm concerned too, the pill can have many adverse reactions. Please ask them to read our page on Contraceptives, it gives an explanation, plus plenty of papers to back it up. But to answer your question, yes progesterone can be used concurrently. It should be started in the second half of the pill cycle, which is when the progestin is taken. The only safe contraceptive is the copper T IUD, it leaks no progestin into the system. Take care Wray
