Bremnc, are you taking the recommended dose of NPC? And how much spiro along with it?
Do you have any symptoms like weight gain, bloating, anxiety? From what I read, it's very hard to have HIGH progesterone; most young women (you are young, right?) either have regular progesterone levels or, if they have PCOS for example, have low progesterone. Mine is on the lowest range of normal, I think that's why I respond to things like vitex and inositol that boost progesterone.
I also did some reading up on glucosmart, and that helps with acne too due to the DCI. It would seem like you are doing the right things, but you won't know unless you get tested. Not that testing is conclusive, but when I got my blood tests last year at least I knew I had low progesterone, not high, so I felt more confident using NPC. Of course, the best thing would be for everyone to test their hormones every day of their cycle, twice a day, and then receive a chart with how each hormone fluctuates. That costs a lot of $$$ and you'd have to go to a private clinic or online to find that type of detailed hormone testing.
Why don't you start a log like greengables suggested? I will do that too...I have a food diary but the log might help me detect mood patterns when I look back on it.
