In brief: Yes
Bio identical Progesterone obtained from reputable compounding pharmacies , works just as well and can be titrated easily.
However you can take one or the other , you can replace the Prometrium (micronized progesterone) with the bio identical progesterone.

Prometrium is bioidentical progesterone, so taking it or compounded progresterone from your pharmacist is the same.

In brief: Yes you can
Prometrium (micronized progesterone) is sort of a bioidentical compound and if tou are doing well on it eould not change it.
There are estrogen plus progesteron patches in the market. Ask your your doctor about it.
