Getting the gameplan from the expert.
Hi Wray, I have a few questions after digesting your whole site. Thank you for all of the information.
First my story. I am a 34 year old male that has had puffy nipples most of my adult life. I am pretty fit from strength training but my nipples stay puffy. Also they are always sore to the touch. I also seem to hold all of my fat around the midsection. The rest of me is muscular and lean.
I took your questionnaire and scored a 17 so it appears that a bit of progesterone would do me some good. I am 5' 10" at 187lbs. What dose would you suggest for me to start at? I have a bit of inflammation in my right arm from all of my computer work so I figure that might be a nice spot to start.
I have also started my wife and I at 10,000 IUs of Vitamin D to try to get our levels up. I know mine is way down. We both have office jobs and don't get out much. I figure after about a month I can reduce us back down to 5K.
I don't suppose that the progesterone will have an effect on my testosterone. Testosterone does not seem to be an issue. I won't go into details. :) I obviously don't want to loose any of that.
Next my lovely wife which is what led me to your website.
She is also 34. From 16 to about 30 she was on the pill. She steadily gained weight while being on it. Now since being off of the pill her weight has not budged. I know that she has painful cramps, backache, and sore breasts right before her period starts and her flow can be quite strong some months.
My question is that since we are not having children (I had a vasectomy) should she use the cream everyday to get her issues under control or still follow her cycle? I don't want to mess up anything for her hormonal wise obviously.
Does the dosage go up depending on body weight? She is at 220lbs currently at 5'7". I was thinking about the high end of 200mg. Money is not a problem and I don't want her to suffer through the estrogen dominance very long if possible so if a higher does is better then I am all for it. I have briefed her on the issue that she will most likely gain weight from the treatment.
Thank you for your time. I hope that this will finally clear up our respective issues. Not to mention that I can take this info to my mother-in-law (beginning osteoporosis) and my mom (full hysterectomy).
