Assuming you have a 2 ounce container of natural progesterone cream that contains a total of 960mg. That means that:
1/2 teaspoon= 40mg
1/4 teaspoon= 20mg
1/8 teaspoon= 10mg
For the first 2 months, use one 2 ounce jar per month from days 10 to 12 until day 26to 30. Start counting with the first day of your period as day 1. Starting on day 10, 11 or 12, apply a small dab of cream at night for a few nights, then a small dab of cream morning and night. Finish off the last 3 or 4 days with bigger dabs of cream, making sure you use up the whole 2 ounce jar. Do this until day 26-30 depending on when you expect to see your period. If your period starts before day 26, stop using the cream. Once you see your period, start counting day 1 again, then start the cream on day 10,11 or 12. When your symptoms are less severe, you can reduce the amount you use aiming to use 1/2 of a 2 ounce jar per month.
