None of them!: 'natural' Progesterone creams do not contain progesterone, they contain plant products that may-or-may not have progestogenic effects.

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hmm: Progesterone should not cause breast enlargement: I suspect the reason your friend's cream might do that is that natural Progesterone creams do not contain any progesterone: they nearly always have plant compounds that act like estrogens.

Should you stay away from progesterone creams if your problem is low estrogen? It worked well when my estrogen was high but now its low. TY!

Progesteron by itself will not alleviate the effects of low estrogen, however. See your healthcare professional for lab tests and advice, since more information is required to answer your question completely. ...Read more
