Hi I would like to know if using all Natural Progesterone Cream will increase your chances to conceive. I am also on Metformin and Clomid with one blocked tube.

Hi Luv2getpreg! Well, my doctor has me on progesterone cream, 2 months now because I am estrogen dominate and ttc. Progesterone is an inhibitor to implantation. When the egg is fertilized it sends a message for the body to increase progesterone production. Due to my specific situation (the difference between my est & prog at the 22nd day prog peak isn't great enough) Dr has me using it from the 16th day of cycle to beginning of next af. I use 1cc from day 16 - 18; 2cc days 19 & 20; 3 cc days 21 - 23; then I decrease in same fashion ie 2 cc days 24 & 25; 1cc until af. I go to an Alternative MD, he doesn't believe in drugs to aid anything. He had me do a saliva 28 day FHP. Diagnos-Techs, Inc. performed the test. It is a mail-in test kit and the results show your entire cycle from start to finish. Anyone can get one here: I think it's 35.00 the testing is about $135 up front. I billed insurance and they didn'tpay, it was $221.00 - I just received the bill. Hope this helps you ;) baby dust!

I just got a progesterone cream from arbonne. I haven't used it yet, but I have been told that it wouldn't hurt anything, and if anything, yes, it might help.

I do not personally recommend progestrone cream. I tried it 2 years ago this month for 1 cycle and did not stop spotting from it until this past December. I used the Arbonne, the rep swore to me that it was the thing to do. I strongly recommend speaking to your DR it is not safe to mess with your hormones. And unless you have a know progestrone problem then this would not help. Plus the DR's like to monitor what you are doing to get pg. My
does not recommend it for the reasons I have said. Please don't put your self through what I've been through. Good luck and baby dust...........

Thank you all for your response baby dust to you all

thanks sashap. I'll definately talk to my doctor after reading your post.


SashaP - March 22

I had to post after I saw your post bj. I get scared for people when I hear they want to try it. I don't want anybody going through what I did. I still here the same reps telling people it's the best thing that they can do. I can't believe they are allowed to tell people that they need to balance their hormones when they don't know anything about any individuals hormone levels. I hoped this helped. Good luck to everyone. Baby dust.....

SashaP, what else did the progesterone do? Last month I hoped that I was pregnant because of implantation spotting, etc. As it turns out, it was the cream - which was my left brain conclusion because it was the only thing i was doing different. The doc says it takes a couple months for body to get used to it and that there are other ways to use it as well. Supposed to start applying again Friday.

I would start spotting a couple of days after my af then the longer it went on it started anytime throughout my cycle. It got to the point that I was spotting more then not which caused me to stop ovulating. She put me back on the pill and I even tried Seasonal the 4 periods a year pill and I still kept spotting. She finally made me get a sonohystogram to see if I had a growth or tumor that she could not feel and a HSG in Dec. Besides having some debris in my tubes that got flushed out I was fine. I haven't spotted since. I don't know if flushing the junk out is what stopped it but something did. I'm finally back on track and learned a good lesson. I maybe just over sensitive but I would never try anything like that again. I take fertility drugs now and haven't had a bad reaction. Hope this helped. Baby dust and belly rubs.........
