Progesterone cream when ovulating?
Hi I'm 39 and am still menstruating but in the past year have started having sporadic anovulatory cycles. I've learned about natural progesterone supplementation & have been using progesterone cream during the 2-wk luteal phase of my cycle regularly for the past 11 months. The more I learn different things about how to use progesterone, the more questions come up as to how I personally should use it. I can tell when and on which side I ovulate because I experience cramping when it occurs. When I have cycles with no cramping I assume I haven't ovulated that month. This month I ovulated and am wondering if I still need to follow up with progesterone cream for the 2 wks till my period, or if it's not needed because my body is releasing sufficient amounts of progesterone from the corpus luteum - I've read somewhere that in cases of ovulation you don't need to supplement with the extra progesterone. Can you give me some advice about that? Thank you!
