TRYING TO HOLD ON
I'm only on day 3 of supplementing progesterone and feeling worse and worse. I've spent hours on this site and everything you explain makes so much sense. I know it's what I need and I want to be successful.
If I had unlimited funds I would use Natpro exclusively but because of the cost, I am combining natpro with a cheaper brand....so currently I'm using a tsp of natpro in the morning and one at night. During the day I am using 3 doses of a cheaper brand ..... for a daily total of 528 (if my calculations are correct)
Because of the breast tenderness, flu like body aches and cramping (I am postmenopausal for five years) I am assuming I am triggering a major estrogen response.
My question is..does increasing more, cause more intense symptoms of estrogen dominance or will they be the same regardless of the dose I am taking? I'm willing to go as high as I need to but not sure if I should jump up in bigger increments to get relief. I neeed to be able to function!! My other question is since I am taking a large amount and probably going higher....does your body absorb it better spread out through the day or does it need a big bunch at once to knock out the estrogen dominence?
Thank you to anybody that reads all this and can help with moving forward.
P.S. is there a fb page where folks can post and get instant feedback from others? I do this with my thyroid issues and it works really well.
