While you can get progesterone cream without a prescription, it would be a good idea to have someone guide you in dosage and how long to use it.
I got mine without a prescription but had talked with my (naturally oriented) doctor who recommended it and he had me using a different amount of cream during different parts of my cycle. I don't remember the specifics.
I know what you mean about realizing what you want. It was just two months ago that a similar experience happened to me. Then DH and I agreed we would TTC in a couple months. Well within days I could tell I was ovulating and by then I was eager to try right away! Now it's just coming up on the time we were going to start TTC and I'm already bummed I'm not already pregnant. That's why I hang out on here. I can't share my craziness with people in real life! lol!
Thanks jr's mom! Maybe I can talk to my naturopath about it at my follow-up appointment. My MD, no way. I had to fight to get the requisition from her to get the progesterone test in the first place (it was my naturopath that wanted it ordered). She essentially implied that naturopaths are witch doctors.
This was the final straw with her (don't get me started on her breastfeeding advice!!) and I am looking for a new MD. Trouble is, they are hard to come by where I live! I have an interview with my sister's doctor in July and am hopeful she'll be more open minded about a complementary approach to healthcare (naturopathic, "modern medicine", acupunture, chiropractic, etc. all have a place in my books).
