How much progesterone can I use daily, can I really just keep increasing it with no side effects down the road?
It appears a great deal of us are suffering from estrogen dominance and have questions and concerns about dosage. I am in perimenopause and it is quite the ride. Some cycles more severe than others. Having no thyroid function does not help either as I rely on my thyroid dosage.
How high can we really go? I like others writing in appear to be constantly raising the dosage. I am now up to 300mg with a week or slightly more break. However during days
7-16(16th day is usually when I ovulate however I have not ovulated last three cycles)the symptoms increase in intensity until day 17 and then symptoms slowly lose intensity. I am producing increasing amounts of estrogen during this part of my cycle as per a woman's normal cycle so therefore the estrogen dominance symptoms especially fatigue and body pain are at their highest. Do i really just increase the dosage a great deal more? How high can I go? 400, 500mg, more? I thought I read one woman took 1,000 mg per day spread throughout the day. Is this really possible? Considering Progesterone is the precursor to estrogen is it possible that the progesterone we increase will also increase estrogen therefore we have to continually increase it.
Wray or others with advice please write in and tell us your experience with dosage. How high have you gone and were you able to decrease it eventually.
Take Care and many thanks
