I have been on all naturally compounded progesterone for since the year 2000. I have been over 1 year with out a monthly.
After I had my last monthly I felt the best I'd felt in years! But, now that over a year has passed... the depression, and the crying have started all over again! I am presently taking 125 mg lozenge daily - 1/2 in a.m. 1/2 in p.m. BUT, could it be that I now don't need as much progesterone? (I know that I can't go off of it as I did try one time to cut back to taking 1/2 every other day, just to try it, and was a basket case again so, went back on my fulll dose). But now this has started and I just don't know what to do.
Are there any labs that I can send a saliva test to that will be covered by my insurance? (if not, the cost is $300).
I'm exhausted all the time... Crying, not sleeping well... I can be nice out in public but, then fall apart at home. I accidentally have offended a couple of people... (by writing how I feel about certain things... being more outgoing in a negative way), which isn't like me... but, I used to be this way EVERY MONTH until I got on the progesterone!
I forgot to say, that when I took your test, my number was 44! But, I've been on a high dose of progesterone for over 9 years, now, I'm falling apart again!
