Progesterone Cream
I heard that some woman use progesterone cream(that they get from health shops), to aid in fertility - what does it do, does it help, and if you do not have ovulation or low progesterone problems, can it be harmful?

I do not believe that progesterone cream helps with fertility at all. A low progesterone just means that you have not ovulated,as progesterone is produced from the ovary after ovulation. Taking progesterone will not make you ovulate.
