Progesterone Cream and bruising

by Sarah M Williams

Hi all,

I am having trouble with my skin where ever I apply the progesterone cream. It seems to cause me to bleed under my skin, just small marks, it also seems to darken my veins? Does this happen to anyone else?

I really need to take the cream, I use it to control my seizures that occur around my period. However I'm worried that the bruising is harmful?

Progesterone Cream and bruising

Hi Sarah

What progesterone cream are you using and how much? When first using progesterone, estrogen becomes the dominant hormone, hence the bruising. Progesterone and unexplained bruising are linked through collagen or connective tissue. Bruising results from the weakening of cell membranes. The hormone estrogen accelerates the aging of collagen, the connective tissue of which our body is made, thereby making the cell membrane weaker. Hormone imbalances induced by environmental poisons especially the 'xenoestrogens' play a significant role in aggravating the problem.
