So confused with the use of Progesterone cream HELP!!

by Catt
(Sydney Australia)

Im 34 and have suffered from acne and severely oily skin (so greasy that my face becomes covered with a thick clogged layer of oil under an hour after washing it) I took BC (Yaz) for over 15 years and combined it with spiro for 7 years which cleared up my face about 85%.

I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism over a year ago and was told to stop spiro and BC straight away and go on NDT (natural desiccated thyroid hormone) which cause my face to return to its oily, pimply mess. A few month ago I started seeing a doctor that specializes in thyroid problems and she put me on natural compounded progesterone cream (without doing any hormone tests) I really don't have a spare $185.00 to see the doctor to ask about the cream.

I was told to use it every night (1 gram 10%) on all days except for 10 days starting on the first day of bleeding then using again after day 10 of the my period starting. The thing is ever since using the progesterone cream 1 week before my period I get the worst cystic acne outbreaks and even more greasy skin that I have ever had in my life and it just stays. I been told look like a dirty person who lives in the gutter and doesn't shower due to how bad my face looks. Am I using the cream correctly? Can I stop it cold turkey? Or is it things will get worse before they get better? Any help would be appreciated
