cycle has changed
I am on my 2nd month of taking progesterone cream..I normally started my period the same day every month so I estimated a 32 day cycle. The first month I started taking 20mg (I know u recommend more) but my Dr. wanted me to try this first. I took it on the 18th day of my cycle... I used it for 14 days and my period came a week late. This caused some confusion as to when to start the cream again. So I purchased some ovulation tests and started using those when I started having signs of ovulation. On the 13th day of my cycle it showed that I had a LH surge..same with the 14th day.. on the 15th day it was negative so I assumed I had ovulated and started the cream on this day. My question to you is how do I know when to stop the cream? I have used the cream for 14 days as of yesterday, if I stop the cream now and my period is a week late like last time wouldn't this be the time I would need the cream most.. for pms (one week prior to period). Can I use the cream until my period starts to prevent the pms symptoms if my period is going to come late? Also is using the ovulation test strips a good way to determine ovulation, because if the test was correct and most people ovulate 14 days prior to next period shouldn't I have already started my period since I've been using the cream for 14 days? Sorry about all of the confusion, just trying to get the schedule down! Thanks for all of your help.
