Side affects from being off the birth control pill
I've read lots about progesterone therapy on your website and have been recieving many emails about different situations with progesterone. I'll try to keep my story short.
I'm 22, I've been off the birth control pill for 10 months and have not had an actual period since (slight spotting once or twice). I was on the pill for 4 years. In the past 4 months I've gotten horrible acne, gained weight in my mid section and feel constantly bloated no matter how much water I drink or how much I work out. Also excessive body hair and never ending sweet tooth! I'm determined to get healthy and to the bottom of this the natural way. I went to the doctor a month ago and he says it sounds like I have PCOS. I am going for blood work and an ultra sound within the next few months. He put me on antibiotics for my skin, I hate having to take prescriptions but it was so bad he was affraid of scaring. I've started taking Vit D, Zinc, Vit B, Flax and omega 3 oils a couple weeks ago. I've read the things you've written about these few supplements. I tried ordering NATPRO and you were out of stock so I ordered from Renaissance Natural Progesterone cream. Hopefully this cream is safe and effective. I'm desperate at this point! I'd love to hear your opinion and any other suggestions you may have. Once I receive this cream do you think I should use it everyday until I get a period?
