Measuring progesterone cream

by Mary

I have a progesterone cream in a tube. How do you convert 1 gram of cream to tsp measurement?

I know there is 1g in 1 ml liquid (water) conversion and 5ml=1tsp (liquid) but what to do when you have cream and not liquid?

Measuring progesterone cream

Hi Mary

I see that you have asked the same question on another post. If you are using the Natpro Tube, then the best thing to get for measuring is a metric measuring set. One teaspoon is 5ml as you correctly stated, 3ml is 100mg. You might like to read the How to use Progesterone Cream page, the conversion chart explains in more detail. If using another brand, may I suggest that you contact the makers of that cream to discuss further. There are many brands on the market today, all advising different things. If progesterone is not used correctly it will not work.

Take care.

Progesterone Cream vs. Oil measurements
by: Anonymous

I have been using progesterone cream for a few years now. The dr. recently increased my dosage to 1 ML topically/ day- which is 4 clicks of the container.

I have been researching about switching to using a natural progesterone oil. How does the conversion of measurements work, assuming the oil has 3mg of progesterone/ drop? Just not sure how one could switch from cream to oil accurately, if that makes sense???

Thank you for your time.
