Progesterone for postpartum and breastfeeding

by Maria

Hi Wray,
I have symptoms of estrogen dominance and am currently pregnant. Can I use progesterone cream right after giving birth? I plan on breastfeeding as well and am not sure on dosage and how long I should be on a progesterone cream?

Hi Maria

You certainly can use progesterone cream after giving birth. You should actually use it while pregnant. Please read the
Pregnancy page. Between 100-200mg progesterone per day is needed, the How to use Progesterone Cream page will help you to understand more, it also explains about pregnancy and the use of progesterone.

Progesterone therapy is a lifelong commitment. If you are thinking of stopping after birth then I suggest that you see how you feel after a few months then decide whether you wish to stop or continue. Not many women stop using progesterone, but if you are fortunate enough not to experience any adverse symptoms then give it a try. You certainly will not be doing any harm by using it.
