Promox also contains Progesterone and Hydrocortisone among other stuff. Prolly the best combo for MPB. It’s too expensive though. U can make your own combo cheaper.

I just bought a jar of Progesterone Cream from GNC on sale for $8.24. The regular price is about $12.

GNC’s Progesterone Cream is also enriched with chamomile, avocado oil and aloe.
