Skin didn't absorb progesterone cream
I went to a doctor specializing in bioidentical hormone therapy. At first he put me on the Progesterone cream and an estrogen cream along with a testosterone cream. In all my lab results after using the cream for several months, it showed that I did not absorb the dosage at all. The levels in all hormones only continued to drop until I started taking the troches. My levels have swung up and down along with my symptoms. Mostly weight gain and bloating. The hot flashes that I had almost every hour and woke up several times a night with are at a minimum. If the oral progesterone doesn't absorb well through the liver and your skin doesn't absorb well, what would be your alernative?
