I use about 1/4 teaspoon twice a day. Don't go by the instructions on the package, as these are for perimenopausal women. I use it every day without a break.

Well, two questions for you then:

1.  So why did you start taking it?  Were you trying to overcome certain symptoms?  Did you have some kind of test that you felt would be improved by taking progesterone?  I guess I'm asking what your goal was?

2.  And, obvioulsy, you did not feel that it caused you any of the symptoms that Dr. Crisler was concerned about?

phatphish:
I actually looked into using it because of a book my wife read. She had had a total hysterectomy and the estrogen that her Dr.'s prescribed made her symptoms 20x worse. So she looked at alternatives. This book (don't remember the title), made a brief reference to progesterone use in men. I have been looking for answers to my condition since my Dr. gave me Viagra 12 years ago. I was (and still am) very tired of the "Vigraines" as my wife's old boss at the health food store used to call them, every Time I use one of the little blue pills. My research led me to the research of the late Dr. Lee. I just decided to try progesterone to see if it would help. Not sure it really helps my ED, but I did notice my "guys" stopped shrinking and I felt a lot better. No, i haven't experienced any negative symptoms. But as I said, I'm battling a very different problem than most guys. (I've only met one other person who has a tumor. She is an elderly neighbor, in her 90's who is seeing the Dr. that removed mine). There is actually very little info on my condition, at least I haven't come across much, and I've been searching since I had surgery  2 years ago.

PeakT:
So did they just remove the tumor, I.e. your pituitary is largely intact?  How much of the pituitary's other functionality have you checked?

phatphish:
Yes, the pituitary is intact. The tumor was producing prolactin and growth hormone. My Endo has not mentioned LH but I suspect it is low. Half way through my second bottle of Tribulus I have noticed My Testicles seeming to put on weight. I have not been in for a t level because I'm still unemployed and it"s getting to the point of putting food on the table or not. All my Dr. said after my last level was that everything is normal. I know he checks t level, PSA, liver function, and seems like he checked for blood cell count? Can't quite remember. He has never mentioned estridiol levels either.
