Can progesterone cream be used to treat estrogen dominance in someone with pcos instead of bcp?

Yes, but... It can but you would need to be monitored very carefully with bloodwork and ultrasounds. Cream that is compounded may not be absorber in a predictable way. And also you never really know the exact dose you are getting. So to protect yourself you need to be monitored carefully by a reproductive endocrinologist.

Can natural progesterone cream be used instead of bcp to treat pcos and underlying symptoms like irregular menses?

No, it cannot. Progesterone cream does not address the issues that need to be dealt with in pcos. And also, depending on the progesterone, it may act more like an androgen, a male-like hormone. Natural Progesterone creams are not used for treating irregular menses. Please see your gyn or an endocrinologist for proper treatment. I am concerned that this cream can make things worse.
