So confused, need help with progesterone dosing
I'm so confused.
Im 42 and have been using 20 mg of progesterone cream, days 7 - 14 and 40 mg days 14-28. My doctor had me start using it for pms and because my regular periods became irregular and every 3 months or so I will have a period two weeks after the last one. I have a 25 day or so cycle now, it used to be a bit longer though. I had a very light, short period on 4/28, then started with pms symptoms almost immediately after I stopped bleeding. I started bleeding again on 5/14, which is almost two weeks early. When this has happened before, the next cycle is usually back to 25 days or so.
I don't know how I should be using the cream when my cycle is off since I was told before to stop the cream when I start bleeding. It also sounds like I'm not using enough?
Any help would be appreciated.
