How much progesterone cream?

I have been taking natural compounded progesterone cream for three about mths now. I went on it for severe pmdd and hormonal issues. It has finally helped with my Pms (such as inflammation and breast tenderness) but I still have very bad anxiety. I am up to 480 mgs and increase it every 3 days.

Do u know women who have kept increasing it and finally hit the dose that dramatically improved their anxiety? Would love to know what it is like not to have it everyday.

Would love your feedback and how this works.

Hi Bernie,


Welcome to EmpowHER. Some of the treatments for PMDD can include. Good nutrition. Many health experts recommend that women with PMDD limit their intake of salt, caffeine, refined sugar, and alcohol. Supplements, such as calcium, vitamin B6, vitamin E, and magnesium may be recommended. Regular aerobic exercise such as walking or swimming appears to improve premenstrual symptoms. If you feel the compound creams are not helping in minimizing your anxieties. Medications such as antidepressants may be used to treat PMDD. You might want to discuss with your doctor the options of taking medication to treat your anxieties. Hope this was helpful?
