A couple of questions. I am currently taking 100mgs of Prometrium. I have tried cream before and my blood tests revealed that I was not absorbing either the oral or the cream- I was up to 200mgs of each at different times. Would a saliva test be more accurate? Also, I had some side effects (esp with the cream) like acne and oily hair.
I know I am estrogen dominant but not sure how much progesterone I need. I am 43 and was on birth control for over 20 years. My most troublesome symptoms are anxiety and insomnia. If the cream is more effective, can I use the Prometrium capsules by opening them and applying them on the skin? And, if I buy the cream, can you tell me how much cream I need to apply daily and how much progesterone I need? Thanks!
