    I just received my Progest-E today and have already dosed myself. Does anyone know how long I should wait to eat or drink after oral application? I've scoured around the instructions and in Dr. Peat's articles but I didn't see this addressed. Maybe I missed it. How long do any of you wait?

    I try to time it right after I finish eating a meal. I also make sure my thirst is quenched, and try not to eat or drink for at least an hour afterwards. I rub some all over my gums and some on my lips. Some gets swallowed but I want the majority of it to remain topical for as long as possible, even though Dr. Peat says it gets absorbed through the stomach and intestines fine.

    I also read somewhere that progesterone drops after a meal, don't know if that's true but that also contributes to my timing.

    Thanks Kelly! I've been trying to wait as long as possible before I drink anything. So far I really like this formulation much better than the transdermal cream I've been using for the last year.
