Right progesterone dose for an endometrioma (chocolate cyst)?
by Sky Blue
I'm in my late 30s and have a large-ish endometrioma (chocolate ovarian cyst). I didn't know for sure that I had endometriosis until the cyst was found, although I'd had very painful periods all my life and had suspected I might have it. The cyst is painful during the first two weeks of my cycle (the estrogen phase) and almost "silent" during the second two weeks (the progesterone phase). My cycles are regular, although in the last year they've shortened to an average of 26 days from a previous average of 28.
What is your recommended progesterone dosage for an endometrioma, and on which days of my cycle should I apply it?
