Very Wary to Commence Using Progesterone
I am wary of starting Progesterone - I have severe PMDD, fibroids, out of control cravings... What I am having doubts about is that you state on first taking Progesterone you may experience Oestrogen Dominance and to combat this to either increase dosage and persevere with symptoms or reduce the dose considerably and then gradually increase the amount although you state this may take longer to resolve symptoms.
If this is the case why are people still complaining of symptoms such as weight gain, hot flushes, PMT etc who have been using the cream for a few months as if what you say is correct in the latter suggestion to decrease the cream and gradually increase then I can't see why people should then still be in a state of 'Oestrogen Dominance'. You then suggest that they increase the cream to 100 or 200mg; if they have been on the cream for a few months then I thought decreasing and slowly increasing the dosage would be sufficient to enable Progesterone to become the dominant hormone. What I am basically saying is that I am worried that I will be getting on a Progesterone Dosage rollercoaster.
