Trying to figure this all out
I have been taking 600mg of Micronized SR capsule Progesterone. When my levels were first tested in June of 2010 (blood test) my levels were 8.4. In February of this year my levels were 12.2 I do not know at what point in my cycles I was when these tests were done. My physican told me it didn't matter. Now I am reading and feeling like it DID matter. When he first perscribed, he told me that my Estrogen and Progesterone were too far apart and I had too much Estrogen. The only Estrogen test I can find is Estradiol which was a 59 in June of 2010, my first test. He has not tested it since.
I started seeing this physican because he does HRT with bioidentical hormones. I have been taking the hormones to balance out severe mood swings and depression. I take the above mentioned 600mg of Progesterone at night in pill form every day. I am also taking 120mg armour thyroid each morning. In addition I take Vit D3 5,000 IU, B vit complex and a PreNatal vit.
For the past 13 months I have been attempting to get pregnant. I am 30yrs old. I have had 4 previous pregnancies with no problems. All of them concieved in less than 3 months and all resulting in a healthy baby. I recently took an ovulation test (at home test strips) and did not ovulate. Could the Progesterone be causing issues? Should I be taking that much- every day?? I feel good- other than not being able to get pregnant, but I am beginning to have frustration and feel like my physican has become like every other Dr. and is just brushing off my concerns. What is your input?
