How much progesterone should I use?
Dear Wray, I'm 44 and since puberty I have suffered from painful breasts, my right breast in particular. The pain starts after my period and leading up to and during ovulation and can last for about 4-7 days.
The right breast is much more full and lumpier than the left. My breasts then become fuller leading up to my period. I have discovered progesterone cream and take a good multivitamin and although my breasts do feel a bit better, the pain leading to ovulation continues. I use progesterone cream from day 14 till day 26 about 1/8th of a teaspoon as recommended but feel I should be taking more. I filled out your questionairre and I definitely appear to be progesterone deficient. I had a breast reduction last year because after the birth of my son my breast just got too sore and heavy. Respite through the month is minimal.
If you have any advice I would be more than happy to hear it as doctors over all these years have not listened to me or helped me. They just don't seem to understand my predicament.
