Birth Control and Progesterone Cream

by Cheryl
(Lawrence, KS USA)

Wray, I have benefitted so much from progesterone cream. But my step daughter is on Depoprovera for birth control and cannot afford to get an IUD. The health department only gives out birth control pills and depo shots.

My question to you is: Could progesterone cream help her with estrogen dominance (which I am sure she has)? Would she only use it the second half of her cycle? She said that she spots quite a bit now.

Many Thanks for your help.

Hi Cheryl. I'm so happy the cream has helped you. But dismayed your step daughter can't afford an IUD and that the health department are only interested in drugs. But to answer your query, yes it could help her, and she would use it in the second half of her cycle. I can't tell how much she would need to overcome the affect of the drug, but suggest she starts off in the normal range of 100-200mg/day. If she's spotting she might have to use the higher end of the range first, and then reduce the amount slowly once the spotting has gone. I do hope it helps her, but please ask her to save for an IUD! Take care, Wray
