Too much testosterone not enough estrogen
I am 31 and found out that I had pcos about 8 years ago. I have been told I have too much testosterone and low levels of estrogen and I am producing high levels from my pituitary glad.
I suffer with really bad facial hair, acne, very painful and heavy periods which come when they feel like it. I don't ovulate to adult stages and when I do I've been told they are too old to be fertilised, my left tube is also some what blocked. I've tried the contraceptive injection which contained progesterone this made my acne and facial hair 10 times worst in just 2 weeks. I had to go back on the Dianette pill while I was on the injection to help maintain back some estrogen. After 3 years I have come off of Dianette as it was giving me really really bad period pain when I was no where near due on. Excercise and lifting seemed to made the pain even worst. I'm on Yasmin now for 4 weeks noticed my stomach has trippled in size. I would love to come off of the pill altogether and try for a baby soon. The cream sounds like my best bet but Im not sure what one do I use. Do I use progesterone, estrogen or both? The advice given on this site is by far the best I have ever read so I am hoping some one out there can help me. Thank you. x
