Too much cream?
Wray, I have read a lot of your replies here regarding progesterone use, and I think what you say makes a lot of sense. What I can't seem to wrap my head around is saying most women need to use 100 mg's a day more more of this cream. It doesn't sound healthy to use such a large amount - that is A LOT of cream to rotate over various parts of the body long term. And progesterone can get stored in fat if I am not mistaken. How can someone really bank on using this cream in such large amounts longterm without significant side effects? Most creams dose out 20 mg's...you are saying we should use five times that amount or more. Is this really practical for long term usage? How does one prevent this from getting stored in the fatty tissue and building up, or becoming ineffective over time?
I am pretty sure I am low on progesterone, but not feeling that it is practical or even affordable to use so much everyday. How many tubes of cream are you using monthly? It just seems like an awful lot.
I want to find some relief, but at the same time want to make sure what I do is practical and will be more than a short term fix. How long have you used progesterone cream at those doses? Did it stall at some point in effectiveness?
I am just really trying to educate myself on this. For example, I read "The cream is easily soluble in fat, due to which it gets stored in the fat tissues. After applying it over a period, the progesterone in fat tissues starts accumulating and disrupts the functioning and production of adrenal hormones in the body." How are you combating this? Also that high progesterone levels can cause similar symptoms as low...so what happens when using that much cream makes the progesterone too high?
Thanks for any advice you might have. Just looking for answers as I have felt a high hormonal imbalance for awhile now.
