What to expect after low progesterone treatment
I am 22 years old. I am guessing that I have been suffering from this for most of my life but in recent years it has gotten unbearably worse. I have low progesterone.
I have suffered from almost all the side effects... insomnia, terrible weight gain, no sex drive, irritability, anxiety, cysts in my breasts, horrible memory loss, water retention, tiredness, no motivation etc. I went to my gyn. not too long ago and he told me I have low progesterone and prescribed me an antidepressant called Paxil. Paxil is great for helping with some of my symptoms, but not all of them. I'm not trying to get pregnant which is why I'm guessing he didn't prescribe me any hormone replacements.
What I would like to know is if I start to take progesterone what is good to take and will it help me lose weight have a sex drive again and not retain so much water and all that other stuff Paxil doesn't fix?
