I started using Dr. Lee’s progesterone cream on the “estimated” day of my ovulation. The first week and a half I was using 100 mg (I don’t know how much progesterone that is exactly in the concentration of Dr. Lee’s crème). Then I ordered Natpro (from Julienne in the UK). I started using 100 to 200 mg daily. The last few days I used a bit more (240 mg/day) as my breasts were still tender and I felt more relaxed using a bit more. My breasts are still tender, but it’s tolerable. I don’t want to use even more for the moment. I realise it can take up to three months for things to become more balanced.
However, now my period is two days late. I read some of the other posts on this issue and realize it’s normal to have irregularities the first months of using Progesterone. I have two concerns now, one is that I’m never a 100 % sure when I’m ovulating. My cycle is around 32 days, but it’s not precise. So I may have started using the progesterone cream a few days before my ovulation. Could this have upset my cycle and prevented my ovulation? If so, how can I prevent this in the future?
Secondly, I don’t know whether I should stop using the cream now and wait for my period to come through or just continue using it. I’m a bit lost. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
