Should I begin using progesterone cream?
(Chapel Hill, NC)
I am a 41-year-old woman with 2 children ages 9 and 11. I have always been and continue to be an active runner and try to eat healthy.
I've used the birth-control-pill since I was 17 and did not have any problems conceiving my 2 children, nor did I have painful periods as a young girl. I did have more lip hair than I wanted and excessive oily facial skin that had a tendency to break out. I chose to wax my lip and by the time I was in my 30's I out-grew the excessive oily facial skin.
In 2005, I decided to no longer take the pill, thanks to my husband having a vasectomy. Shortly after getting off the pill, I began having strange symptoms; crazy dreams I was dying, mood swings and severe dry skin to the point I began breaking out. I thought all of this was because we were living in Germany due to my husbands work. We moved back to the States in June of 2006. In 2008, I began having additional symptoms; hot flashes, more strange dreams, low libido, more mood swings, breaking out to the point I had to see a Dermatologist. Per the Dermatologist, I began using Atralin Gel for my face due to "adult acne and because my skin was not exfoliating itself, etc".
July of 2009, I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and was told to begin taking YAZ, I also opted for Laparoscopic surgery. Today, September 23, 2009, my OBGYN informed me my blood work shows; I am Pre-Menopausal or Peri-Menopausal, my Estrogen is great, my Progesterone is showing I am no longer ovulating. She said I may not be ovulating because I had just recently decided to quit taking YAZ due to my symptoms becoming magnified while on the YAZ.
This August, I learned about your product and website from a lady I met while my family and I were on summer vacation. She went on and on about the positive effects the Progesterone Cream has on our hormones, etc.
I take multi-vitamins daily which include: Antioxidants, Lutein, Lycopene, Selenium, Co Enzyme Q-10, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, B-100, Calcium Magnesium plus Vitamin D, Very Green (a combination of concentrated greens) and B-12 with Folic Acid and B-6.
I've also read about Brevail and wonder if I should take that in addition to using the Progesterone Creme?
Thank you so much in advance for your response.
