Application & Usage
much cream is applied?
Normal usage is between 1/8 tsp. (10mg progesterone) to 1/2 tsp. (40 mg
progesterone). Apply to areas of the body high in capillary concentration
such as chest, wrist, neck, throat, face, palms of hands and soles of feet,
rotating the application periodically. For best results, apply to moistened
recommended that these application sites be rotated every four days to
assure best absorption. Best results will be obtained if applied to warm,
moist skin after a shower or bath. The heat helps to open up the pores for
most efficient absorption. It is recommended that you wait at least 15 to 20
minutes before applying other lotions, creams, or make-up to allow the
absorption of the crème into the tissues first without any interference from
any other topical creams or lotions.
Pre-menopausal Women (Peri-menopausal):
Count the beginning of your period as Day 1, start application on Day 12 and
continue for 14 days. If your cycle is longer, you may want to continue
until Day 28. If your period begins before it normally would, stop using the
crème and begin counting up to Day 12 and start use again. Women concerned
with birth control often start on Day 8 of their cycle.
Menopausal Women not receiving estrogen:
You have a wider choice in your timing. You might want to base your use on
the calendar month and apply the cream for 25 days, then discontinue until
the next month. If your symptoms are severe, use a higher dosage and then
gradually decrease. It is important to take a few days off each month.

one-half when starting progesterone. Women may choose to establish a goal of
eliminating synthetic estrogen entirely. If this is done it should be
accomplished over a three to six month period under the consultation of a
