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. They have side effects and risks, just as pharmaceutical replacement. If you need hormone replacement, I would recommend regulated hormone replacement vs. Unregulated hormone replacement ...Read more

Are there risks or side effects of using progesterone cream (wild yam)?

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.

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?

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

I am 45, in menopause using natural progesterone cream at night. Recently I've had mild cramping at night. No bleeding. Progesterone side effect?

Natural P4: Possible but hard to say. If you mean otc 'natural progesterone' cream from a health nutrition store, none actually contain any progesterone. They're plant compounds that claim 'progestational activity.' in studies I've seen most, especially the mexican yam products, have estrogenic activity instead! Creams can be made from micronized progesterone, and these are more predictable. ...Read more

Having side effects from mirena (levonorgestrel).I have lots of cysts growing on my ovary. Ob wants to use implanon can I use a 20mg topical progesterone instead?

Confusing: Progestin iud like Mirena (levonorgestrel) does not 'cause' ovarian cysts. Normal ovaries always have follicular and/or luteal cysts, are you certain your cysts are not normal? Finally 'no, ' topical progsterone cream will not impact ovarian cysts or ovarian cycle at all. ...Read more
