Breakthrough bleeding after using progesterone cream
Can you answer my question? I started using the cream 12 days before my scheduled cycle. My cycle came on time and I felt great, no breast soreness, I had a lighter than usual period, and minimal bloating.
My period stopped on the 4th day, but then my breasts got swollen and painful and I had some spotting for a few days. By day 10 I started to bleed again and having really bad cramping, it is now day 14 and I'm still bleeding and it's rather heavy (3-4 super tampons a day) with lots of cramping. The bleeding and cramping reminds me of the bleeding you have just after childbirth (cramping feels like it did when I was nursing). The blood is bright red and thin and passing some clots.
I went ahead and started the cream back last night (day 13) not knowing what else to do. Is it okay to start the cream while I'm still bleeding even though I'm on day 14?
