Dosage Question

by Tammy

Wray, I thought I saw somewhere on your website that 1/2 a teaspoon is equal to 166mg. But then I saw this on the website too...

2,000mg of progesterone (one tube of Natpro), divided by 14 days gives 142.7mg progesterone per day. This equates to 4.25ml/day or almost 1 (one) teaspoon.

I'm not sure if I'm reading this correctly, but doesn't the second paragraph say 1/2 teaspoon would be 142.7mg?

I'm just trying to figure out how much 1/2 a teaspoon equates too, because that's how much I've been taking each morning and night to equal a full teaspoon per day. I was just figuring that I was taking 332mg. per day. Is this right? I just started this week. Do some women bump ther dosage down a bit after a few months?

Thank you.

Hi Tammy 1 tsp equals 5ml. Each ml contains 33.3mg progesterone, so 1tsp or 5ml contains 166.5mg progesterone. It is confusing, I wish there was only one measuring system, it would make life far easier for all of us! So you are getting about 166.5mg progesterone each day. We do have info on this page How to use progesterone cream. If you scroll to the bottom, there's a list of the two measuring systems with the amount of progesterone given too. Take care Wray
