Where to apply progesterone cream

I recently started experimenting with progesterone cream to lengthen my luteal phase which was variable and on the short side. I've recently been diagnosed with PCOS and decided to try Natpro over Progest as it is a higher concentration of progesterone. Currently taking 166mg a day during the luteal phase only. My question relates to where to apply the cream. I already know it can be applied to areas of the skin - but I would like to know if it can also be applied inside the vagina or rectum to avoid my skin becoming saturated with it. Your advice would be welcome.

Thank you.

Where to apply progesterone cream
by: Wray

Hi there The vagina is an excellent place to apply it, either use a finger or syringe. The rectum too. I have done a page on Progesterone Misconceptions. It explains about the saturated skin, which seems to be doing the rounds on the web. We also have a page on PCOS, it is possible to reverse it, but large amounts of antioxidants are needed. The most important being vitamin D, please have a test done. For more info on vitamin D levels, testing etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth, Birmingham Hospital and Vitamin D Links websites. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml or 175-250nmol/L and not the 30ng/ml or 75nmol/L most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. Thank you for trying the Natpro. Take care Wray

Does pg cream help when ttc
by: Anonymous

If so can you tell me exactly how to apply in the vagina. Where specifically? Should it be rubbed in vigorously or thoroughly? And how much should be used for a woman who tested 3.6
7 dpo?
