Dr. Cynthia Stuenkel, clinical professor of medicine at UC San Diego

"Dr. Cynthia Stuenkel, clinical professor of medicine at UC San Diego and president of the North American Menopause Society, shares this concern . "Some progesterone creams may contain little or no progesterone, while others contain so much that they definitely should be available only with a prescription, " she says. " Taking hormones without the careful guidance of a doctor is risky business ," Stuenkel says, " Among other things, too many hormones can potentially cause blood clots and endometrial hyperplasia, a precursor to uterine cancer.
Dr Stuenkel is correct in that progesterone creams are relatively safe, and available OTC (over the counter) without a prescription. These are regulated by the cosmetics act. She is also correct in that the OTC progesterone creams may vary in potency. The highest quality and most reliable progesterone creams are made by prescription at a compounding pharmacy. These are freshly prepared according to the prescribed dosage written by the physician. This is all OK.
