Endometriosis and Progesterone treatment - please help!
I'm 18 years old, 5.2ft and 100lbs. I have stage IV endometriosis (and pcos with insulin resistance in spite of being underweight and not being able to gain weight)
I would like to treat my Endo with natural progesterone. Using it from day 6 to aprox day 27. I am extremely afraid of doing it wrong and having my Endo grow back in after surgery.
Do you think 250-300mg daily is fine for me? Or is it too little/too much considering my weight und condition?
Since it's hard to get the cream in my country I would like to use utrogestan- can it be used anally? And will there be the same degree of absorption as vaginally? (About 70%?)
I'm currently on BC (with horrible side effects) - can I start the progesterone right after the first bleeding after stopping the BC? Or will that cause problems with the resensitizing of the receptors and initial worsening of estrogen problems and Endo?
How can I avoid that?
On birth control I have lost my libido and have vaginal dryness, UTIs, yeast, depression, insomnia etc... my testosterone is way too low and I have vaginal estriol deficiency - could that happen with progesterone as well?
Best regards and thank you for this website!
