Progesterone Dosage for a 10% Cream

by Geraldine

I have read the following on this site about the amount one should use of Progesterone cream :

"Generally between 100-200mg/day of progesterone (that is 3ml to 6ml of cream) is needed."

Is this amount if you are specifically using Natpro cream that is 3% Progesterone? What if you have a 10% Progesterone cream, would the amount needed be less than the above as its 3x as concentrated?

Also- I understand you take it in the Luteal Phase (I'm menstratuating normally) , so do you stop once you get a bleed?

Hi Geraldine

As you have read on this website it refers to a 3% cream, that would be any 3% cream. If using a cream with a higher progesterone concentration then less cream needs to be used. You will have to experiment to see what works for you best.

If you have a regular cycle then the cream should be used at Luteal phase which starts from ovulation until bleeding. It is always, in all women, 12-14 days long when no bleeding occurs. Please read the How to use Progesterone Cream page for more information.
