Hello, I have been using progesterone creme for 8 months now with 100 mg daily. I'm 43 and periods are erratic. It's been 2 months without a period and hot flashes have returned after being absent for a while. I did take dim with calcium d glut for 7 months and then stopped being afraid that I wiped out all estrogen low enough to stop having a period. I know there are misconceptions about hot flashes and it's told its due to low estrogen when in fact it could be due to high. I understand this and have read so much on this website.
In my case though is it possible you feel it could be low estrogen? I am in Peri M but it takes estrogen to bring on a period and I haven't had one in 2 months and flashes are back. I increased dosage to 4 pumps daily of natpro to equal 400mg as suggested by the website starting2 days ago. It's alot of creme to apply at one time. Can I apply this to my calves, feet, bottom, tummy area? It's alot of creme to spread.
