Help! For the past 3 years I have tried every way of taking progesterone that there is... I am 45 and menopausal... Cream, gel, pills, and even inserted pellets. STILL my levels will not raise above 0.2 or 0.3... For the past 12 weeks I have been doing blood labs every single Tuesday while taking different forms... Even essential oil types this time & still NOTHING. MY doctor is puzzled & honestly seem shocked & confused. WHY WHY WHY won't my body absorb BHRT Progesterone?!!! Wray, your site is the only relief & hope I find online... I feel horrible & for my family, I want to feel better!!!

Hi Kelly

Please do not even bother with any form of oral progesterone or troches and most of it gets destroyed by the gut and liver, see here. Please read How to use Progesterone Cream. Progesterone therapy is not an over night fix, it can take 2-6 months before positive signs are felt if used correctly.

It could also be that your Vitamin D3 level is not within range, a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone.

Hope this helps.
