Progesterone got rid of my Headaches!
by Tara Gunderson
For two years, I tried to find an answer to my chronic daily headaches. I had been to several doctors, dentists, massage therapists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, acupuncture and even a neurologist that couldn't figure out what was wrong with me, nor could they fix it. Even with medication (which came with tons of uncomfortable side effects), I still had my headaches.
I finally did some research on my moods and PMS, because I had always been a bad PMS sufferer. I figured science must have a cure for that by now! I came across a lot of women experiencing the same symptoms as me for PMS, or PMDD. I decided to finally ask my DR about progesterone cream to at least get my mood back on track. I never thought it would help with my mystery headaches.
I used my first dose in the evening before bed, the next day, I did not get a headache! Now that's huge for me considering I suffered every day with one. It's been 7 days on my progesterone cream and still no headache! I wonder now if all along, my headaches were from a severe hormone imbalance. It's no coincidence, as soon as I started, gone!
I'm not yet to PMS, but I'm wondering if it will ease my symptoms when that time comes. I'm excited to find out. But in the end, I'm so happy being headache free!!
