It's possible your doctor recommended progesterone cream and maybe you're looking for other ways to increase your own production of progesterone.

Progesterone cream is often the recommendation when a woman has low progesterone. It's easy to find over the counter and it makes sense that if you're low in progesterone, it's probably worth supplementing.
