I explained to people before that I was on dhea, testosterone and oral progesterone and I gained 20lbs in 2 months, since May 20th I stopped the oral progesterone, and around the 30th I stopped the Dhea and testosterone. I am wondering about wild Yams, I know this is supposed to be different and the information states on one hand that wild yams can help with premenopausal symptoms and another source says that yams can help the body produce it's own progesterone.
I have tried this and the first day I became bloated and now I am afraid that this may have progesterone in this. The progesterone made me gain weight. I was on oral and I know this is cream 1/4-1/2 teaspoon. I am afraid since I feel the bloat I will produce estrogen and begin to gain weight, I need some sort of relief, but not weight. Most of every complaint I have read on various sites by women is Progesterone made them gain weight and this was bioidentical cream.
I am bloated and I'm afraid I will gain, should I just stop everything? I mentally won't be well if I gain weight. Years ago I was on Depo Provera shot and gained 50lbs, I dieted and couldn't lose any weight until 2 or 3 months after I stopped the shot. Can anyone help me? Wray, please some advice. Thanks.
