I am 20 years old and have been dealing with a loss of period and weight gain for almost two years now. I was put on birth control and diagnosed with PCOS. The birth control made everything worse. I went off the birth control in December. I was only on it for 3 months. I have gained 20 pounds and exercise a lot and do not eat very much. I had a saliva test done in December and it gave me a progesterone level of 31.39 pg/ml. My progesterone level to E2 ratio was 23.96. I had a testosterone level of 45.74 pg/ml. My E2 level was a 1.3 pg/ml.
I was put on herb cycling for 2 months to try to get my progesterone up. I did get a period every 36 days for 2 months. I then started progesterone cream, Karajin 4 Balance, after my period in February on day 7-28. I stopped it for a week and was a mess. Bloated, crying, anxious, crabby, weight gain, low energy. I didn't get a period. So I went back on it after the week and I still do not have a period but now am feeling bloated and really crabby and sad. I cry for no reason and cannot control it.
I just want to take back control of my hormones. I have been using 2 pumps of the cream which has .75ml per pump. I do one in the morning and one at night.
Is it normal to have a period for 2 months and then miss it this month?
Also, is there any way I can stop the weight gain and start losing. I am only 20 and cannot afford to gain more weight. I work so hard and nothing I do works. Also with the mental problems is there any way to stop them? My emotions are so extreme it is pushing my friends and family away.
What is a general time frame for this to be corrected? It has just been a long battle and I am ready to be done.
