I have recently been put on pellet therapy, and progestene suppose to be all natural. When they checked my levels they said I was rock bottom I am 50 Sill have all female organs. After first insert they said my levels were to low, had a booster pellet last Thursday and doubled my progestrone to 200 mg. I had a severe fog and vision blur yesterday. Do i not need the pellet etrogen and need progesterone. I had severe bladder issues going to bathroom contstanly. Got better until last week when all was increased now going again constant. I also take blood pressure medicine.

Hi Lei I'm not sure what pellets you are on, are they only progesterone? And you say the amount you were given was 200mg, how long is this meant to last? Do you have them daily, and where are they inserted, under your skin or in the vagina? I recommend 100-200mg/day, injections, suppositories and creams are the best Delivery systems. The symptoms you are suffering from are caused by Oestrogen Dominance, please look through this page, it explains why it occurs. For more info on how to use progesterone, please see our page on Menopause. Progesterone does reduce blood pressure, so does vitamin D, please have a test done. For more info on vitamin D levels, testing etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth, Birmingham Hospital and Vitamin D Links websites. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml or 175-250nmol/L and not the 30ng/ml or 75nmol/L most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. Take care Wray
