That would only apply if you swallow, eh? Not with sublingual use?

True enough. But for a different reason I'm a little uneasy about sublingual delivery in general. I've seen data for some drugs showing that serum levels can skyrocket in a relatively short time.

I initially tried scrotal application of progesterone in oil, available in a couple brands from Amazon. I was applying about 6-8 mg per day. "This took my serum level up to mid-range (LabCorp).
Would you be so kind as to include a link to the cream product you used?  I am considering trying progesterone cream.  The one you used seems to have worked.  So that would be a good candidate.

Thanks!

I used the Progestelle product, which is oil-based.

C,

I'm assuming you applied the progesterone to the testes because it circumvents the "fat can retain progesterone for a long time" idea?

What do you think about wrist application?

What do you think about wrist application?

I mainly did it for improved absorption, though in calibrating against injections it looks like absorption was only about 10%, which is supposed to be typical for for hormones on skin elsewhere. But articles say scrotal skin can have absorption rates up to 60%.

Was there ever any solid evidence to support the idea of progesterone accumulating in fat? I remember that it's been mentioned a lot, but I don't recall any attribution except maybe that some doctor said it.

I'm sure absorption via wrist and/or forearms is possible. In the end you just have to try it and then compare serum levels to baseline.
