Can progesterone cause stomach upset?
Good morning Wray, I have purchased a jar of progesterone cream at my local gnc store a couple weeks ago. I have been on a low dose of Premarin off and on for several years now and decided to try the progesterone cream.
I have been off my hrt for two weeks now and have been using the cream for two weeks . The first week of use I did have some major hot flashes for a couple of days and now they are very mild ones but I felt more calm on the inside than I have felt in a long time, but in the second week I am having some stomach issues like a truck load of gas, heartburn and some mild abdominal cramps. Could the cream be causing this or is it just me? I do have some occasional stomach upsets but have not had any in quite some time until now. Also would like to know if I should take the five day break from the cream ? Thanks and God Bless.
