Hi Coleen Edwards,

Thanks for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community!

To help you some more, we have a few questions for clarification:

1. Do you still have a uterus?
2. Are you taking the progesterone to prevent uterine cancer?

A doctor on our medical advisory board who specializes in hormones, mentioned the safest progesterone to take would be Crinone Vaginal. First though, it is best to make an appointment with your doctor to discuss further and learn more about the medication.

Here is some more information on Crinone: http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/medicines/pregnancy/a7818/crinone-vaginal-gel...

Let us know the answers to our questions above. We would love to help further!

Best,
Erin
