Having a period every two weeks on natual progesterone!
I miscarried at the end of Mar. 2010 and have felt awful since. In late Aug. got blood work done on day 14 of my cycle. According to results, progesterone was low, 1.12 considering Luteal phase (1.55-27.91).
I was put on 100mg progesterone triturate once a day and told to increase to twice once my period came to offset the symptoms of menstruation, (anxiety, dizziness) I was having. Started Sept. 1st. My period came a few days later as usual and I increased to twice a day and stayed that way for 2 months. The 1st month I started to feel better with only slight dizziness and tiredness. But by Oct., I was having awful symptoms such as nausea, extreme panic attacks, dizziness, hypoglycemia, etc. Had two periods in Oct. and a 3rd early Nov. The Dr. suggested I take more but because I felt so awful I only took my morning dose at the end of Oct. beginning of Nov. Saw another Dr. who put me on 50mg to get me back on my normal 28 day cycle & to take progesterone with my cycle instead of all month long.
When I saw this Dr. I had already started bleeding for the 3rd time in 6 weeks! I'm off all progesterone until ovulation, then 50-100mg til period. What to do? I don't want to have a period every 2 weeks, but need progesterone!
