I guess I should have prefaced, that I started out on a large dose 8 years ago (in my 30's) using a compounded cream. I took it for 8 long months. The ONLY benefit? I wanted to attack my husband 24/7 (not sure if that is a benefit). I have tried all modalities and delivery methods. Please don't be rude. I am well versed. Just frustrated that no dosage level, titrated up or down to the tiniest dose, or delivery, has worked.
By the way...I am in no way knocking bio P for others. I think it's wonderful that many find relief. I have, in fact, touted it to others, including my own mother, for years!!! My post is...why not me? Listen, I ran a board on yahoo for years, helping people with thyroid issues. I'm here to find an answer to this madness. I'm 42 years young and have been battling pitifully low progesterone shortly after having my second child, so about 10 years. I have desperately tried to balance all hormones, deficiencies, adrenals, etc... To get this under control. My thyroid is the only thing I have been good at keeping relatively optimal (I say relatively as hashi's loves to wax and wane). I know that my vitamin D is best around 60-70, ferritin 70+, b12 over 500. I have taken rhodiola, pregnelelone, vitex, DIM (yikes, not good for me when the estrogen is now dropping now), the list goes on. I'm desperate. I've gone gluten free even, despite zero gluten antibodies on all four tests. Now that I'm 42, I'm crashing even harder. I have skipped periods, 2 week periods when they are here. It's a living nightmare. Now I have zero libido and well, what's an orgasm? The progesterone is clearly an issue: however, I cannot handle it in an form or dose. WHY???

Wow, just read all the comments
First, I am just Denise, not anonymous. Just me. Desperate me! I can't believe what all I just read. I stumbled, yes stumbled here. Had NO IDEA it was for particular progesterone users only. Soooooo sorry! Grab a gun and shoot me now. Geesh! So rude! I know for me, on high levels of compounded progesterone cream it made me a bitch. Something I am typically not. Scary! Maybe you are all on too much because let me tell you, I have never seen so much bitchiness and meanness before. How disheartening when I was at an all time low and grasping for anyone to tell me I'm doing something thing wrong and that you might have a simple solution, that yes, this well versed lady may have overlooked. My children need me. My husband needs me and THIS is the backlash I get for accidentally stepping into the wrong forum?? Shame on you all!
You all do not know me at all, and to make snap judgements is just wrong. Shall I list to you what I do to help my hormonal mess? I don't use fluoride, I eat organic 75% of the time. I rarely drink alcohol now. I use all natural creams and beauty products. I don't walk outside in bare feet in case I step on pesticides or fertilizer. I try to stay away from plastics (certainly never cook with them in the microwave). I could go on and on about how overboard I go in maintaining homeostasis. My kids think I'm nuts. Don't judge me or assume I don't do as much as I can for my health. I feel like I need a sincere apology from you people. Just, disgusting how you tout yourselves as wanting to HELP out of the goodness of your hearts, "praise God" B.S. and then attack someone who is totally in despair. Hope you all have a great day!
