Young female with low progesterone and estrogen!
I'm a 32 year old female who has low estogen and low progesterone (as shown on saliva tests). I also have cfs, mcs and fibromyalgia. I was told to take 40mg of progesterone days 14-28 of my cycle but to first start at a low dose and then slowly escalate.
After reading the posts here I'm wondering if I should go to a higher dose. I began with 10mg 2X/day but the bloating, fatigue, urethral/bladder pain and heart palpitations (especially at night) is getting terrible. I'm sleeping 20+ hours per day and cant function at all. I started 10mg 2X/day on day 7 and now its day 27 and I still feel absolutely horrible!
I'm hesitant to go to a higher dose b/c Im too afraid of th heart palpitations at night. When I tried to go to 20mg at night the heart palpitations got so severe that I almost called 911. Not sure how to proceed at this point. I will be stopping the progesterone tomorrow (day 28) but dont know how to proceed afterward. I would appreciate any help. Thank you very much!!
