Is there another progesterone other than tablet form

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello ladies

I take utrogestan for 14 days of the month to cause a bleed. Are there any other types of progesterone other than tablet form? I am on the gel to supply the estrogen.

    Hi, I take utolvan- norithesone. To stop bleeding , I have done now for about a year . 3 in May my consultant said I can take it all the time without any break , which means I shouldn't have a bleed . Although I have had a bit if spotting/ streaks this week

    Hi Michelle. I don't think there is, but your doc or gynae would know for sure. I also have the progesterone depo provera injection (synthetic progesterone for contraception, & it is not licensed for the progesterone element of hrt for unknown reason to me(my doc told me this & I've read it somewhere) which is why i also have to have utrogestan capsules. the utrogestan capusle are only for hrt purposes & cannot be used for contraception purposes (not that i feel any libido at present). How are you getting on on the propranalol? xxx

      It has brought my heart rate down a bit so that's good. Regarding the gel I've been rubbing it on my shoulders/arms,is that ok? It seems to dry within a couple of minutes. I seem to feel jittery when I'm taking the utrogestan I find. On another forum a few ladies have felt this way xx

      That fine Michelle. just keep it away from breasts, & make sure your skin has no body lotion or perfume on from the daytime (thats why i do my thighs, as I'm a BIG perfume love - i find comfort from all my lovely scents!!!) You could ask your doc if you could increase the propranalol to help with the anxiety after checking your bp of course. xxx
