Last 2 cycles used 2x Cyclogest (400) both failed
This cycle advised to switch to Utrogestan x3 a day BUT they are only 200mg each so LESS progesterone than before???

Is Utrogestan different? Why less? The nurse said not to worry but I am!

I have Cyclogest left from last cycle. Considering 1x cyclogest and 2xutrogestan in case I absorb one better than other at least I'm using both

Can I mix and match ?

Also is it possible to overdose on progesterone ? Or is it the case that you can't have too much

As a rule there shouldn't be any harm from taking too much progesterone, although it's important your clinic know how much you're taking so any progesterone levels that are taken are in context

Plenty of clinics use both Cyclogest / Crinone and Gestone injections as well - I used both Cyclogest and Lubion injections

I'm afraid I don't know about swapping Cyclogest and Utrogestan as I've never used the latter
