I mistakenly applied topical estrogen and progesterone creams before my shower. How long should I wait until I have my shower and wash it off? Thx

In brief: A few minutes

Most topical hormones absorb in a few minutes.
If you wait for just s short time, a shower should have minimum effect on your hormone cream.
