Progesterone cream and 21-day test


Hi all,

This will be my 1st time using progesterone cream and I wanted to know what you all thought. I am not with an RE, and my OB thinks my progesterone levels throughout my cycle are “fine” because of my one blood test that said I was within normal levels, though I don’t remember what the number was now. All I know is that “normal” is a pretty wide range.

Here’s the thing, I have consistantly had many symptoms of low progesterone over the last 8 or so years, sore bbs, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, short lutual phase, infertility, etc. So I’m convinced that my prog is low. This cycle, I’m going to use progesterone cream from my health food store from ovulation through when I poas. Will this mess with my results on my 21-day P test? I’m wondering if the results will be skewed since I will probably have higher levels of of Prog, but not necessarily because I ovulated. What do you all think?
