Hi Tasha

Progesterone often causes symptoms to be get worse before they get better. It could be that you need more than 150mg Natpro, 3% cream. It can take 2-6 months before one feels it's benefits. How old are you? You could be in Peri-Menopause. What is your vitamin D3 level? A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone as mentioned many times on this website.

If you type PMS in the search bar you will find many posts on it.

Good luck.

Thank you joy.

How do I know if I need time to settle, or if I need more cream to get better??? This pms is not abating. I did not have bad pms before starting the cream. Thanks.

Hi Tasha

Your body will tell you. If the amount of cream currently being used is not working, then increase it, find a level that will suit you and your symptoms.

Don't forget that you body is adjust to progesterone therapy, you must expect to feel a little 'off'. Have you read the How to use Progesterone Cream page? If not, please do.
