Before you do anything, I would start charting BBT. If your BBT remains well above the coverline throughout the LP, then it's probably not a progesterone issue but something else. I had a similar problem with spotting, and gave some OTC progesterone cream a shot. It did NOTHING. I actually had more spotting that month. I think it's one of those things where the OTC stuff isn't strong enough and you need a prescription. I've been using red raspberry leaf to strengthen my uterus and it has eliminated my spotting. It may do nothing for you, but it may be worth a try. The other reason why you would need to chart before starting a progesterone cream is if you start the cream to early you may trick your body into thinking it ovulated, causing you to miss your chance that month.
