Tested during Luteal phase
I'm 27 and was tested during my Luteal Phase and my progesterone was at a 1. I have been on the pill all my life. When I was 11 I had very heavy periods and my mother found me passed out on the floor before school due to no iron. The cure all for that was the pill. It made me feel SO much better... I was able to function like a normal teenager would.
Now that I am 27 and married, I got off the pill to get pregnant. After a year I started having panic attacks, high anxiety, and mood swings. I really felt like I was going to lose my mind and my body was going to shut down any day. My mother felt that it was my hormones... with that went to get them checked and found out I had no progesterone in my body whatsoever. I should have been at a 20 and I was at a 1.
Now I have been taking bioidentical progesterone cream for about a month. I have noticed some changes like sleeping better... but the stressful anxiety has really not let up that much. Doc said it could take up to three months. Is this true and is high anxiety related to low progesterone?
