Progesterone made me happy again!
(Ottawa, Ontario, Canada)
In January of 2010, I sought out a Doctor who offered HRT. I was perscribed a daily dose and within a few weeks I could feel the difference in my body. Within the first two or three months there was a marked difference in my ugly mood swings, or UMS as I call them.
I started to think that if more women were on this HRT therapy there would be less women on Prozac or other mind and body altering drugs, every woman needs this happy cream! In addition to my new attitude on everything without the feelings of dispair, there was a decrease and within the next couple of months elimination of monthly yeast infections which required perscription medication.
The one draw back that I directly relate to the HRT is the onset of monthly migraines. The most recent one lasted for three days in which I wished for death. The perscribing Doctor assures me there is no direct link however I am convinced.
I had migraines for years and was recently migraine free for approx. the last seven. Only a few months into the therapy the migraines started again usually just prior or a few days into the start of my menstration.
There has to be some balance found between the new feelings and lack of other nasty things going on in my body and the new onset of migraines or I am not sure if I should continue HRT therapy. I am 42 years old and know the benefits but the headaches are disgusting.
