Can progesterone therapy impact a woman's milk supply?
My ND has me on 1 tsp (80 mg) natural progesterone cream during the second half of my cycle due to estrogen dominance and adrenal insufficiency. She has me in several nutritional supplememts, and I have recovered from candida overgrowth and leaky gut.
Based upon your research, and my present symptoms (breakthrough bleeding, acne, water retention, anxiety, irritablity, insomnia), I suspect that I need to increase the progesterone cream. However, I am hesitant because I am breastfeeding... Do you in know if the 100-200 mg dose will negatively affect my milk supply?
