Do I raise my dose now....??
Prescribed nat prog cream in Oct 2012 (aged 37, still menstruating, ovulating?). I had been advised to start slow so 1st month I only used 20mg 3 days after ovulation and 3 days prior to period. I had such bad "est dom wakeup" reaction even on this small amount I nearly stopped. 2nd month took 20mg on days 14-28 = less "est dom wakeup" but still bad. After reading more info on web 3rd month doubled dose to 40mg daily days 14-28. Again less "est dom wakeup" symptoms and def more energy/more level emotionally and coping more with stress. Thought I'd cracked it however, last few days getting very anxious and low and today (4th month in, day 10 of my break from cream) I have totally crashed!! Really depressed and incapacitated again - pretty scared to be honest. Is this estrogen dominance symptoms??? Should I start the cream even though its only day 10 of my cycle?? Also I found your site today and after reading your info on starting prog cream and dosing my question is as I have missed the first three months high dosing and without breaks to make progesterone dominant can/should I do this now? Greatful for any help. Many thanks from the UK.
