Will progesterone help me?
by Sammi Jo
I am kinda worried about my symptoms now because my doctor is a difficult one to get a straight answer from! I am 22 years old. I have a son that's 4 and a daughter that's 2.
I first started to notice my problems after the birth of my son. About 1 1/2 years after he was born I went 6 months without a period. I was not on any type of birth control and it made me think I could be pregnant. So I went to the OB/GYN and he said no pregnancy but did an ultrasound on my thyroids and a blood test. He said I was low on one hormone and gave me a pill that I took for 3 days. This started my periods back and it was suddenly very easy for me to lose weight! I lost 40 pounds in a month by simple stuff like cutting back what I was eating. Anyways, I lost the weight and got pregnant with my daughter. Since having her I have tried every diet imaginable, spent countless amounts of money on gym memberships and absolutely busted my butt and cannot lose the weight. I started a new years resolution this year that I was going to lose 80lbs. Since Jan 1st I have not had a single soft drink, no fast food, and I have been exercising every other day. I am GAINING a couple lbs each month. My hair is "shedding", I stay bloated or constipated. My muscles are constantly hurting, my hips and knees start hurting every night at bedtime. I AM GOING BROKE ON TYLENOL!
I went to my OB/GYN and presented all this again about a month ago and he tested my thyroids again and said that wasnt it and put me on a pill I take for 7 days one per month. I lost the script so I don't know what it was called, but he said it would cause me to have a period every month. I told him I am having them at random times. Sometimes there's 6 weeks in between and sometimes its only a few days.
Can progesterone help me and if so where can I get it? THANKS... and sorry for the book! LOL
