A while back, my mom bought some progesterone cream from Blue Stuff, a local company that has been getting very good reviews on their products. She has endrometreosis and read in a book that progesterone cream is good for helping the pain related to it. Mom asked the woman at Blue Stuff if it would be alright for me to use since my periods are usually very painful for the first few days. She replied it would help with the pain, so I have been using it on the days I am supposed to, if I don't forget. A couple of days back, I started bleeding a little bit. It's near the 25th day of my cycle, so I should be starting my period soon, but this isn't like my period. I only really notice the bleeding after I go to the bathroom. There is only a spot of two of blood on the pads I've been wearing and I feel no pain whatsoever, whereas with my period I start cramping up to a week beforehand.
I have also been slightly sore down there since the bleeding started. That I attrbuted to getting slightly carried away whiel masturbating, so I didn't think anything of it until after a couple of days passed and I was still bleeding.
I think it may be due to the cream since my mom was complaining of starting her period much sooner than expected. So, I was wondering if anyone had ever heard of this happening before?
------------------ It took so long to remember just what happened. I was so young and vestal then.
progesterone is a hormone that maintains the endometrial lining. when levels are up, the lining stays intact. but if levels fall, as the ynaturally do during the menstrual cycle, the lining disintegrates and is expelled as menstrual blood. it is possible that you weren't applying the cream regularly (maybe forgot a day or two). then it may be that the P4 levels fell enough to cause spotting.
and latex gloves with lube during masturbation can prevent those nicks, scratches and cuts if you get a little carried away.
