Needing advice

by Tracie

Hi, I'm 46 years old. I discovered the miracle of progesterone cream last year after suffering from numerous symptoms of estrogen dominance. At that time, I did have my hormones tested using saliva testing. I found that my progesterone and estrogen levels were both very low. I was told to supplement with progesterone and not to worry about the low estrogen yet. Recently, I've been having some of the symptoms return, irritability, anxiety, trouble sleeping, I also have begun to have spotting after completing my period, usually 2 or 3 days after it has stopped. It always stops once I hit mid cycle. I have been under more stress than usual so I decided to up my dose a little to see if that helps. I have also researched adding a phytoestrogen cream or an estriol cream as I am also experiencing hot flushes to my face. It doesn't effect anywhere else as of yet but so much of the time my face feels hot. I wanted to know what you thought about adding the estrogen to my regimen. Or would you recommend just using more progesterone? I am currently using 1/2 tsp (40 mg of USP progesterone) of Emerita Pro-Gest twice a day. I had been using 1/4 tsp twice a day with great success but it doesn't seem to be enough anymore during this stressful time.

Hoping you can help steer me in the right direction,
Tracie

Hi Tracie I see you've asked the same question of Vero, one of our distributors. To save confusion I've asked her to answer you. The advice will be the same as I would give you. Take care Wray
