alright.. I am terribly confused right now<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">: ...<br><br>
progesterone cream... I am finding conflicting info about where to <i><b>apply</b></i> it... the woman who gave it to me (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">) told me to put it on fatty areas... <i>BUT</i> upon further research I have found some suggest NOT to apply to fatty areas but to thin skinned areas (like the neck or back of knees) as it can linger in the fat and not go to the blood (or something like that<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> )... so I have been applying to my belly, breasts and thighs... but switched last night to my neck (I woke up slightly nauseous this morning. I don't know if its related or not)...<br><br>
theres all this information about how to apply for menopause or cramps... but nothing for how to apply it to induce af (cd 77<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">)...<br><br>
slightly frustrated and confused... anyone have some suggestions or testimonies in this area?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I agree with the fatty areas, as it's not just anything you're absorbing, but it's technically a hormone, and that's best absorbed through the fatty areas on the body. That's what I first learned in nursing school, then found in research, then was told by my nurse/doula/LLL leader when I was using it.
