question about luteal phase defect
I am 43 yrs, female, trying to conceive but have luteal phase defect. About 10 or 11 days from ovulation to menses. I have been taking 100 mgs of oral progsterone but wanted to begin squeezing hormone(in olive oil) out of capsule and rubbing into skin. Pharmacist said she didn't think would work but I don't see how as the hormone in pills is same as they put in creams. Would you suggest I try and how much of the 50 mg pills should I use transdermally to correct my LfD? Thank you for your help!
