I've been having horrible period problems since I was 12 years old, I am 26 now. I would always miss a week of school and vomit for three days straight. I was put on birth control when I was 13 and decided to stop last year because I didn't want to find out what it could have done to my body.
Well once I stopped, the horrible period pain came back. I vomit a day and bleed horribly. I also have heavy flooding in the mornings. I got a blood test for my hormones and was found to be low in progesterone. I have all the signs: hypoglycemia, heavy periods with clotting, acne, gas. I was put on Progesta Care in July of this year. I noticed the flow has been slightly lighter, but the cramps are still awful with vomiting. I just graduated college and I know when I get my first job I can't miss a week of school. Would diet and exercise help with the progesterone for my cramping? Also, for my problems, how much exactly should I be using? I was afraid to use it at first because I'm also on Lexapro, but Im trying very hard to wean off that too.
Thank you for any advice, it is really needed.
