How much of the compounded progesterone do we need? I am 56 and have had a Complete hysterectomy. I’m taking the estrogen divigel 0.1, and a small dose of testerone. I’ve always been told I did not need progesterone because of hysterectomy. I tried taking promethium one time to help with sleep, I was taking 300mg at night. I did not feel good while taking it. Felt like it gave me anxiety. Is the compounded progesterone a better route? Thank you, Vicky Saxton, I do have a family history of breast cancer.
Hi Vicky, I prescribe as much progesterone that is required for sleep, lack of breast tenderness and uterine bleeding without side effects of hangover in the morning. Everyone’s tolerance is so unique. Some women on as low as 300 others on over 1000. There are forms that don’t cause as much drowsiness (lozenges) and others that are absorbed quickly (Immediate Release) to prevent morning hangover and others that are longer acting (sustained release) to prevent waking in the middle of the night. I don’t like promethium due to where it is harvested, peanut oil and not many women do well with it.
