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.
Use them vaginally for your daytime dose and you'll get less symptoms.
