I have been on a compounded testosterone cream for a couple months now. To make a story short, having kids messed my hormones all up. I've noticed a HUGE difference in my libido when using the testosterone cream regularly, so that's a plus since that was my main problem.
My gyno has now put me on a compounded progesterone cream also. She said my hormone levels came back low. I have a stupid question though. The prescription says to apply "topically". I'm assuming that means to use it the same way as the testosterone? I apply the testosterone to my neck, wrists, thighs....areas where I have thin skin. Does anyone know if I apply the progesterone the same way? I called the doctor yesterday, but haven't received a call back yet.
Also, do you think it's safe for me to be on these prescriptions? Weren't there warnings a few years ago about HRT's causing cancer or heart problems? I'm only 28.
Thanks for any replies in advance!
