Progesterone Saved My Marriage
I am 29 and have been taking progesterone for a little over 6 months. From the time I had my son (who is now 3) I became withdrawn, anxious, gained weight, and had absolutely no desire to be close to my husband. I am not talking just a lack of sexual desire (though that was there, too). I did not want him to talk to me, hold my hand, sit next to me on the couch, hug me, etc.
This went on for over 2 years. I also was starting to lose my sense of humor. I did not feel like myself, and I told my doctor that. My doctor's response was that it was normal since I had just had a baby. No. It was not "normal" and was not getting any better. I finally found an ad in the newspaper about natural hormone replacement therapy with a list of symptoms. I was surprised that I had ALL of the listed symptoms. A blood test showed that my progesterone levels were low and since I've been on the hormone therapy, I feel much more like my old self. My husband is relieved that he has me back. During those two years, I often heard him ask me if I wanted a divorce. I was so withdrawn from him... nobody else, just him. Taking progesterone has truly saved my marriage and gave me my life back.
