Progesterone cream and Micronor?
My main problem since chilhood has been my weight. I have been put on so many unsuccessful diets from the age of 10 but no matter what I ate or how much I exercised it made little difference. By the time I was a teenager I took control, I stopped eating and became anorexic.
This obviously has caused me many problems, which are too many to mention but the pounds still pile on for no reason and will not come off no matter what. My doctor is completely unsympathetic and seems to think I sit around eating cakes. He has done tests but can't find any reason for my weight problem.
However, I did have blood tests a few years ago to try and find out why I was getting absolutely crippling pains with my periods, which have always been irregular but had become unbearably heavy and very erratic. After asking what the results were I was told I had a hormone imbalance which couldn't be treated but I needed to lose weight. I wasn't told which hormones were imbalanced and as my doctor was unhelpful I thought I'd ask my family planning clinic if the pill could help. They told me that they can only give me the pop which could make things worse. I wanted to try it and was pleasantly suprised to find it cured my period problems and eased my aching joints, which my doctor had told me was osteoarthritis.
After doing some online research, it seems that most of my problems, including my weight and swollen ankles are caused by low progesterone, so I went back to the doctor with this evidence but he refuses to do anything about it. I tried slightly increasing my pill intake and following a diet which is meant to help balance the hormones and my foggy head cleared. I became much more mentally agile and assertive, my depression lifted and I became more possitive thinking and able to cope with life much better.
However I haven't seen an impressive change in my weight or my ankles and don't want to increase the Micronor, so I've ordered some progesterone cream and am hoping this could be the answer to my problems, although I am wondering if its ok to take with Micronor?
