Increased Appetite & cravings
I'm currently using 20mg of progesterone cream for 14 days and then I stop again for 14 days. I've started using the progesterone cream about 2 months ago because of very low estrogen levels and low progesterone levels. I've never had luck with the contraceptive pill and have very bad side effects if I use it. I don't have any periods unless I use something to help it along. I've also tried several natural products but even with those I experience symptoms such as water retention and weight gain. I've struggled with very bad cravings for the last year and have tried so many things but nothing seems to really work. I can't be 100% sure but my cravings and appetite is a lot better the week before my period, but the rest of the month I constantly want to eat and think of food all the time. I mainly want to eat carbohydrates but lately I'll eat almost anything. I eat a lot of vegetables, fruit, chicken, fish and maybe once or twice a week red meat. I don't eat any grains as I feel this only makes my symptoms worse. I'm also struggling to lose weight and feel all the progress and effort I make is all for nothing because of my constant eating. I exercise about 6 times a week for at least 30-40min.
Am I using enough of the cream, I would really appreciate it if someone can help me with this as I have nobody else to ask even my doctor is useless.
