After menopause (or after a hysterectomy), women no longer have menstrual periods. Many women apply Progestone-HP daily for approximately 3 weeks out of the calendar month, on a regular basis. They select either the first 3 weeks or the last 3 weeks of the month, as they prefer. It is important that you discontinue use of Progestone-HP for a week or at least for 4-5 days during each month to help maintain the body's ability to absorb and obtain maximum benefits from the products. Many women begin by using from on-half jar to one whole jar during each month for the first 3 months. After that, depending upon how they feel, they reduce the amount used to one-half jar or even one-quarter jar per month. With vaginal dryness, some women use 1/8 - 1/4 t. intravaginally in place of their daily application or in addition to it.
