Correct Dosage Help Please!

(Chicago)

I need some help on dosage! I took a hormone test through ZRT and my progesterone levels are at 26 pg/mL. The recommendation is 75-270 pg/mL according to the panel for Premenopausal luteal.

I have progesterone cream from a compound pharmacy. My doctor told me to apply "1 click" which is 1/2 ml on days 1-14. Then on days 14-28, apply "2 clicks" which is 1 ml.

Is this enough? I don't feel any difference

Thank you so much for your help!

Hi Victoria

You are not using enough progesterone. Between 100mg/3ml and 200mg/6ml is needed.

The cream should only be used from ovulation (Luteal Phase) for the last 14 days of the cycle. It is always, in all women, 12-14 days long. Progesterone is used during this luteal phase.

Please read the How to use Progesterone cream and Estrogen Dominance pages.
