Should I increase amount or stay on current amount & endure symptoms?

by Bonnie
(Alberta, Canada)

It's been over a month of Natpro and the estrogen dominance symptoms are getting worse, particularly the anxiety. I know you recommended that I increase the amount Wray but if I stay on my current amount (1 tsp a day), will I eventually feel better though it might take longer? Or will I just feel awful without any improvement? I'm just trying to decide what route to take.

I read a comment that estrogen dominance should disappear in a week if the progesterone is used properly! I'm sure it's going to take at least a few months for me to get over these symptoms.

I started on 1/2 tsp twice a day and I think it took me about 3-4 months but it did get better. I dont know your situation as to why you are using it and how long it will take you but hopefully Wray can advise. Hang in there. My migraines went away completely and my anxiety lessened.

Hi Bonnie I don't think you could have seen my reply to you on another page. I have no idea what the link is to give you, as you've given another title to this page. I always save my replies, but I won't be able to find it, as I save it under the title. But I know I suggested you increase the amount. In some women symptoms can go in a week, but it's very rare. I also remember giving you links to users of high amounts to encourage you. One of them is from Annette, she also lives in Canada, and has been giving wonderful advice to people to hang in there. She's been through a torrid time, and is still struggling a bit, but is very much better than she was. These are the links here, here, here and here. I also asked you to have a vitamin D test done, as most people have very low levels in Canada, see here, here, here and here. For more info see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth and Birmingham Hospital websites. Take care Wray
