These may be: Used for a variety of conditions, but the only one that has any shred of scientific backing is local estrogen supplementation in early menopause-- but even here the scientific evidence doesn't back up the claims. The risks include stimulation of estrogen sensitive malignancies. Also they should be avoided in pregnancy and breast feeding. In summary, probably a waste of money. ...Read more

How soon does prolactin start to rise in early pregnancy? My prolactin level at cycle day 21 was a 34 and progesterone was 22. What does this mean?
2 early miscarriges , i lost them around the same day i test postive . When that happened i was 20 years old , and that was a few months ago . Now i am 21 , i want progesterone because its to also to help support a pregnancy.
Thrombophilia: After 2 early unexplained miscarriages, there is about a 40% chance you have an inherited clotting disorder. If this is known before a subsequent pregnancy, then you can anticoagulate with enoxaparin prophylactically unless there is a contraindication to anticoagulation. I would test for Factor V Leiden and Prothrombin 20210A mutations, homocysteine, Factors VIII and XI, and the lupus anticoagulan ...Read more
Usually not: A short answer is 'few to none.' it may depend on what cream you use, where you use/apply it, how often, and for what purpose.

There are no medically important risks or major side effects to these creams. ...Read more
What side effects should I be concerned about with Progestrone 100 mg ev other day versus bioidentical Progesterone? Age 59, no female surgeries.
Bioidentical hormone: Bio identical hormone therapy has risks just like pharmaceutical hormones. The hormones have hormone actions just like pharmaceutical hormone replacement, but with less standardization and safety standards.

43yrold-progesterone 200mg(day1-15)-400mg(day15-28)and dhea 50mg-for PMS symptoms x2yrs.What happens if i quit cold turkey?What will side effects be?
Why cold turkey?: Discuss with your GYN about changing your hormone regimen. You have an interesting combination since the progesterone is likely turning down (if not off) your natural estrogen/progesterone production while the DHEA is a precursor for hormone production. If it's doing anything for you, stopping cold turkey is going to leave you feeling fairly crummy. ...Read more
Ok: Most ivf clinics only measure HCG levels approximately 9 days after a day 5 embryo transfer. However, some clinics feel that the combination of HCG levels and Progesterone levels have a more predictive value of a good pregnancy than HCG levels alone. Personally, we only measure hcg. Hope this helps and good luck. ...Read more

Nothing: Prometrium (micronized progesterone) is a synthetic progesterone. It needs estrogen to work.

Why are there so many side effects in birth control? Esp if they're only supposed to have estrogen and progesterone in them?
OCP: Side effects with birth control pills vary widely and are very subjective form one woman to the next, so it's difficult-to-impossible to say why one woman experiences something different from another.
