Re: Progesterone Cream

I've had 2 early miscarriages. This time around, I asked the midwife to check my progesterone levels and they were low. So, I couldn't afford the pills that were prescribed to me and bought the natural cream at the health food store. I had no side effects with it. I was able to switch to prometrium Rx at 8 weeks gestation, and I'm now nausiated and ill (I just posted a more detailed version of this in the pregnancy board). I'm thinking strongly of going back to the cream, even though it's more expensive....but hoping I only need progesterone for another 2 weeks tops, so perhaps I may wait and see.

Do you have symptoms of low progesterone levels? Check online for symptoms of it. I know with me, periods can be irregular, boobs quite sore, and horrible cramping during ovulation, and sometimes during menstration.
