In brief: Varies
During the normal menstrual cycle, Progesterone levels vary greatly.
Thus, for many women who use Progesterone the dose has to vary depending on estrogen levels and other factors. For adjustments, cream rather than capsules allow for better regulation of dose. Generally start with a low dose such as 1/8 teaspoon of Progesterone cream. And work up slowly.
