How Do I Take Progesterone

Progesterone therapy usually begins two or three days after ovulation has occurred. Therapy continues until your menstrual period begins. If you become pregnant, progesterone therapy will continue, oftentimes until you have completed your first trimester of pregnancy. However, the length of time that you take progesterone will depend on your medical history, your specific fertility condition, and the recommendation of your specialist. Progesterone as a supplemental hormone is available in several forms:

• Synthetic progesterone (Provera) available in pills and for injection

• Natural progesterone tablets (Prometrium)

• Natural progesterone vaginal suppositories

• Natural bio-adhesive vaginal gel (Crinone)

• Natural progesterone in oil for injection

It's important to distinguish between those progesterone supplements already discussed with natural progesterone creams that are available over the counter. Natural progesterone creams contain small amounts of progesterone but not in high enough dosages to treat fertility and other related hormonal issues.
