Weaning off progesterone cream

by Nat
(Australia )


I have been using DR John lees progesterone cream for about a year now as the drs said I had polycystic ovaries and was spotting throughout my cycle. Since I have been using the cream (approx 20mg, dose in morning and evening) which I take on only days 12 to 25. I got a hormone saliva test which shows that my progesterone levels are great but my estrogen levels are out of whack as well as high testosterone. I continued the cream and have noticed significant results and the estrogen dominance symptoms have almost completely gone. It has taken about 6-8 cycles for the spotting to completely stop. My question is how do you slowly wean yourself off progesterone cream so the symptoms do not come back?
