Feeling great after progesterone except during period...Help Wray!
by Ganae Vigil
I'm a 26 year old female with PCOS. I was diagnosed years ago and was put on the Mirena IUD. Stopped my periods and was fine for a while then I started getting panic attacks, insomnia, heart palpitations and burning sensation in my arms. I had it removed mid June 2011 and suffered major estrogen dominance symptoms when my period came 3 months post removal. It wasn't until the very beginning of September I started using natural progesterone and it has worked beautifully until now. I just started my 2nd period since using progesterone and it seems when i'm on my period I get those bad estrogen dominance symptoms again and I was wondering about dermal fatigue and since I'm still young and menstruate, is it safe for me to up my progesterone dosage during this time? I have been applying the cream everyday without a break because it seems when I try to take a break my estrogen symptoms come back and since my period isn't regular yet it's hard to time what days I should be on or off. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Your site and advice to others has helped me SO much! Thanks Wray :)
