Is Cream form safe?
I tried a sublingual form of progesterone (Progon B) that a naturopath recommended and it worsened my anxiety, which was the reason why I was taking it. I suspect it was because the estrogen receptors were being stimulated but I was afraid to try it again.
It took me several months to feel better. He told me that progesterone cream can build up in the skin to dangerous levels and is hard to monitor the dosage in cream form - is this a concern? I recently had a saliva test by ZRT, which showed that my progesterone levels were low (blood tests previously showed that they were normal) and I would like to try progesterone again but am afraid of the reaction that I had before. Is it better to start low or start right at 100-200 mg? My cycle varies from 28-31 days so how do I determine when to start the cream? Thanks.
