Can large doses of progesterone cream help one hold a

Customer Question

Hello. Can large doses of progesterone cream help one hold a pregnancy if one is estrogen dominant. I have tried it before to no avail but currently I am having some success with particularly large doses of various kinds of bio identical progesterone cream. But I am dosing very consistently (like every three hours) with several "pumps" and tablespoons.

Hello

No

This would not be a good idea and might actually disrupt the pregnancy.

This is not advised and should not be done.

You could actually stimulate more production of estrogen and other compounds by doing this, including testosterone...and this is an unpredictable and unwise strategy.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
