This is nearly my 3rd month of applying progesterone cream, however I had 5 weeks break before this last trial. 2 weeks ago I applied 5ml daily of progesterone cream, after a few days my period came on early.( i cannot recall what day of my cycle I started) So I thought to stop applying the cream and restart on day 12. I restarted the cream on day 12 ( day 12-18 = 5ml, 18-20= 7ml) and now on day 20 I spotted and day 21 have a period. This did not happen in my first 2 months of the cream and I was using similar dosage then also.
I do have PCOS and was wondering if I should just keep continuing with the dosage daily, or keep a cycle of applying the cream at day 12/14-26/28.
I can note that this time of trialling the cream I have not suffered the same extreme symptoms of oestrogen dominance like I did in the beginning, even after a 5 week break. Where previously I did have a week break in between the first 2 months and the symptoms reoccurred.
This time around, I have had no breast tenderness, or bloating, in which first time round my breasts nearly tripled in size. I have also been on a low carb, no grains adaptation of paleo diet for the last 8 days of the 10 days of applying the cream again, in which I think perhaps has been a great help in deterring the oestrogen symptoms?
As always, thank you tremendously for your advice and support.
