Progesterone creams?post #1 of 1110/2/12 at 9:31amThread Starterpost #2 of 1110/13/12 at 3:27pmpost #3 of 1110/19/12 at 12:15pm
Don't know anything about using the creams, but my post menopausal friend recommended this to me for regular female health (I'm only 27)...
I think it is fine for pregnancy too. Double check the ingredients though.post #4 of 1110/22/12 at 10:38ampost #5 of 1112/4/12 at 5:10pm
joyfammama, what do you mean save, if you don't mind me asking?
I've lost two pregnancies since my boy was born 2 years ago, and both times I cramped and barely spotted pink for daaaaays until I started to miscarry. I asked if I could do anything once I started cramping and they were like "huh, well, no." no hormone level testing or anything. They say there's no reason to think there'd be a fertility problem because I carried my son to term a few years ago.
My question really is, should I have this cream on hand next time I get pregnant?post #6 of 1112/5/12 at 5:40amI mean, I'm as sure as I can be that the two babies I do have I would not have had if I had not used the cream. Every time I cramped and/or spotted, I would put some cream on, and it would stop within minutes. I had to use it for about 2-3 weeks and then I was able to stop (at about 10 weeks). Does that make sense?post #7 of 1112/5/12 at 10:35ampost #8 of 1112/7/12 at 8:21pm
From what I have researched it is good to start using the cream a few days after ovulation even, or at the latest the day you get your BFP. Then use until 10-12 weeks, because stopping may cause miscarriage. It is one of those things, you don't know for sure if it helped, but it can't hurt so why not try it! I used it for my first pregnancy, now using it this cycle (7DPO) hoping for a BFP.post #9 of 1112/9/12 at 8:23pmI think you're right, flyabuv. It's not been very wise of me to wait until I start spotting to use the cream. However, I only recently learned about how many women start to use it 2-3 DPO (often shots or injections), long before they ever have any concrete idea whether they successfully got pregnant or not.post #10 of 1112/13/12 at 5:21pm
I hope you don't mind me posting here...I just happened to be searching for something and this came up.
I just thought I'd share that I've used progesterone cream for many pregnancies (both successful ones and losses). I try to find a cream that lacks estrogenic ingredients (this site has some listed- http://bioidenticalprogesterone.info/miscarriage.html). I generally wait until a confirmed ovulation, so 2-3 days after, but I have started it before I actually ovulated and it didn't mess anything up. I have always used 2-3x the "normal" dosage, and at least twice a day.
However, now I don't just rely on the cream, but I take Welcome Womb, too. I figure I can only benefit from the added help.
