I am on 400mg of progesterone intra vaginal twice /day in a normal pregnancy 7 wks. I wish to taper the dose as I feel it is too high. How can I do so and is it safe to do so.

How to taper the dose of progesterone?

Hi Sheila

With Natpro Progesterone Cream we suggest to reduce by 16mg at a time. Perhaps you should contact the company who is making the progesterone that you are using.

Usually 100-200mg is recommended during pregnancy, see the Pregnancy and How to use Progesterone Cream pages.

Hope this helps.
