Progesterone supplement for estrogen dominance

481 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Metasequoia
I was just diagnosed as estrogen dominant among other things and I have a question about progesterone. He wants me to take progesterone 75 mg (natural form) from day 14-28 of my cycle..... He asked if I wanted pills or cream. I said pills and now I'm wondering what's better?? Anyone have any insight?

Also, I have Interstitial Cystitis and was curious how this would effect it....will it make it better or worse?

One more thing....I have a high platelet count due to not having a spleen and doing some research, I just read that taking natural progesterone can cause blood clots. This makes me kind of nervous. Does anyone know about this?

I'm pretty sure that cream is the preferred method. There's so much info out there about progesterone, a compounding pharmacist can make it any strength.
