I am 41 years old women who has suffered from a hormonal imbalance since the birh of my 2 year old son. I have been through so many doctors to get it under control. Only thing I have seen that has made a little difference has been the progesterone pills.
But do all the progesterone pills have peanut oil in them? Because I am getting a new prescription now for 200mg progesterone capsules but without peanut oil, because I was unaware they were made with peanut oil. I have had a peanut allergy in the past, so want to stay away from it now. This will be the strongest dosage I have ever tried. Would you recommend taking capsules for the entire month or just on days 14-28?
I have all the severe symptoms of estrogen dominance. Anger, joint aches, dizziness, headaches, depression, crying, breast tenderness, severe anxiety, sleep problems, low self esteem. Plus I have a gluten allergy. I have avoided gluten now for 10 months.
Do you suggest taking a higher doasge of progesterone over the 200mg for severe symptoms? Can you have side effects from too much progesterone?
Thanks for your feedback,
