Bio-identical Progesterone Cream

Hi Ladies!

Have any of you tried using bio-identical progesterone cream? How effective is it? I am considering it. Is this some form of HRT?

    Hi Sharcerv,

    I've been reading about it myself and some are saying that because your body can still make small amounts of estrogen it's actually progesterone that we can no longer produce and that a lot of women are finding relief from symptoms using it.

    If I hadn't started HRT recently I would definitely be looking into exploring this route myself.

      I think it has. When I first put it on, I started feeling some relief from how I was feeling. I haven't been taking it long enough to know how well it will work long term.

    Hello Sharcerv,

    I've been using the cream for years now. I try to stop using it one week every month. It's really helped me. I used a lot at first, as I have estrogen dominance, but I think the estrogen is falling too now, and I don't need very much now.

    It helps me sleep and helps with the night sweats
