I've been using 1 pump of gel for two weeks but have upped to 2 pumps as I don't feel any better, Also taking progesterone tablets - two weeks on and two weeks off.

How soon should I feel better - should i increase to 3 pumps or wait?

Any advice greatly appreciated.

So if I don't feel that different is it not working?

Mine took a good week to start making a difference (Oestrogel plus Utragestan). My symptoms subsided but then started to come back, so with my doctor's approval, I increased from two squirts to three of gel.

Some days feel better than others but I am generally a bit more focused and energetic and usually (not always) sleep better.

It takes some time, I started to feel better almost immediately but I saw the full effectiveness after 4-5 months.
