Using cream for 4.5 years, but still confused...
Wray, I had been using a prescription progesterone cream for about 4 and a half years. Because of finances, I'm looking at some creams I can get without a prescription and came across your web site.
I've been told never to use creams made with soy since soy messes with hormones. I've only used mexican yam based creams before. Is Natpro made from soy or yam?
I started using the cream because for most of my adult life I haven't had periods. I did until I turned 18, but then it was very sporadic if at all. I am now 45. The cream has helped me have periods although I've haven't been able to have consistent periods. My cycle when I was in high school was 35 days. Now with the cream it can be anywhere between 33-60 days. Which makes it confusing as to when to use the cream. I've tried being consistent with the cream, 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off. But was told as soon as I start a period to stop and wait to start again for 2 weeks. So, I was starting and stopping the cream without any consistency. Then I've tried waiting to start the cream 2 weeks after my period starts, use it for 2 weeks and just stop until 2 weeks after I have another period, which could be a while. Then it seems I'm not using the cream when I have most PMS symptoms. Any advice on when to use the cream with inconsistent periods and how long? Should I go by the cycle I had in high school?
