I just started using a natural progesterone cream. Is there any interaction taking an occasional Xanax (alprazolam) along with the cream?

No: There are no known interactions between the two. However, if more than 'occasional, ' xanax (alprazolam) is not the greatest treatment for anxiety. In addition, if both drugs are prescribed, your pharmacy will automatically check all your prescriptions against each other for interactions and let you know before you even take one. If one is not prescribed, you shouldn't be taking it. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

My progesterone level is low-17.5. Can I get pregnant naturally? Can you please suggest what I should do to get pregnant quick. Please help

Unclear results: Progesterone levels change throughout the menstrual cycle. Because of this there are not usually checked as a baseline marker to gauge fertility. They are often checked on menstrual day 21 to determine if ovulation occurred. A Progesterone above 10 on that day reflects ovulation. Clarify with the ordering physician why this test was done and what interpretation they have for the results. ...Read more

Find guy & have sex: So you'll need to have sex w/guy if you want to get pregnant, at least in traditional free way. Or you can try ART (artificial reproductive techniques) w/donated sperm. Infertility isn't diagnosed until you go 12mo of active attempts w/o success. Natural creams won't help. Go see your Family Doc, OB or PP to make sure you're healthy enough to conceive. Then start prenatal vitamins while trying to ...Read more

I'm 28 and have a daughter of 2, im more than 20 days late in my period. Can I use natural progesterone to get my period, I don't think im pregnant?

Check pregnancy test: The first thing to do is to check a home pregnancy test. If positive then you have your answer. If negative I would wait awhile before doing anything. Missing a period is common and if you normally have regular periods your body is likely to correct itself. If it does not come eventually Progesterone is one option but it would require a prescription from your doctor. ...Read more

Natural progesterone cream instead of prometrium (micronized progesterone) work? How do I get the progest. I need without prescription, is it worth using cream for infertility?

Natural progesterone cream instead of prometrium (micronized progesterone) work? How do I get the progest. I need without prescription, is it worth using cream for infertility?

Drugs are similar: "Natural" Progesterone and Prometrium (micronized progesterone) are really the same medication. Prometrium (micronized progesterone) is the only brand name Progesterone in a micronized capsule. Normally Progesterone would be digested by the gut, so it needs to be made differently. For both these you would need a physician prescription, but there are lower doses, less refined alternatives available otc or online. Not infertility meds by themselves. ...Read more
