In this study of 35 postmenopausal women, twice-weekly administration of a progesterone vaginal gel (45 mg P4/day) sufficiently protected the endometrium in women receiving transdermal estradiol (0.05 mg/d) as revealed by endometrial thickness and histology. The authors present vaginally applied progesterone as a viable option for hormone replacement therapy at menopause.
