How is Prometrium different than the progesterone cream that the compounding pharmacist made for me?
8 Jun 2010
Prometrium contains progesterone which is made from a starting material from a plant source and is chemically identical to progesterone of human ovarian origin. It is bioidentical.
The progesterone cream that your pharmacist has made differs from the progesterone in Prometrium in that the ingredients are not subject to the same rigorous quality assurance standards that standard commercially available hormonal preparations have to meet.
