Hey Doc,

Question about progesterone:

What about its effect during a woman’s menstrual cycle? Will it stop or alter the cycle if used day 1 to to say day 7?
In other words, if it is used for something like anxiety, can it be used on a daily basis or should it be avoided during menses.
Or should the dosage be adjusted during the menses?

Darleen,
The only time it might alter the cycle is if you are close to your menopause.
Progesterone can certainly be used daily, and should be used daily if there are concerns related to excess adrenaline –  such as anxiety.
In other words,  do not cycle it. No need to adjust dosage during your cycle unless you need more to treat cramps, PMS, or breast tenderness.
