Will progesterone give me my period back?
I'll try to make it short.
I was put on birth control at 15 for migraines. I was on it for 4 years with no problem. Always had regular periods beforehand. All of a sudden while on the same pill I started spotting, gained 20 lbs in 2 weeks and developed horrible acne which I had never had.
I am 20 years old now and this all happened a year and a half ago. I've been to 2 endocrinologists, 2 OB/gyn, and a PCOS specialist and no one knows what the problem is. I have had scalp hair loss on and off, no period for a FULL year now, acne, tired all the time, horrible headaches every day, pubic hair loss, sweaty hands and feet, body swelling, and weight gain. They've tested every single thing they could and my levels are all normal. Not even at the high end of the range. I was put on metformin and spironolactone 6 months ago and it didn't give me a period and also didn't help my acne. I don't have cysts and my testosterone and hormone levels are normal. They said my blood work doesn't support PCOS and I don't have insulin resistance so that is ruled out.
I'm tired of feeling sick everyday and not getting treated for anything. Something is obviously wrong. Would progesterone help? Should I start it on my own since they won't treat me?
