My Dr. has just put me on Progesterone 25mg, to take at bedtime for sleep and anxiety. I am currently in or at the end of my menstrating cycle for March. It says for me to take 4 days off during period, how do I do this, if I am either in or at the end of my cycle time?

Can someone advice me please?

Hi there I actually don't understand what your doctor has told you to do. Progesterone should be started from ovulation, for the 14 days of the luteal phase, and then stopped. Bleeding should occur in a day or two, although it can initially upset the cycle. The amount he has given you is too low, it will merely exacerbate any symptoms you have, and might cause more, please see our page on Oestrogen Dominance. I recommend 100-200mg/day, more if symptoms are severe. You might like to look at these comments here here. If your Anxiety is very bad you might need 400mg/day to help you. We do have more info on our page How to use progesterone cream. Take care Wray
