14 year old with PCOS and has started progesterone therapy
My 14 years old has been diagnosed with PCOS. Most symptoms have improved somewhat with medication with the exception of chronic fatigue. Symptoms currently being treated with medication are: anxiety/depression (Prozac), elevated androgens facial and body hair (Spironolactone), Acne (antibiotics) - also taking Vit D 5000IU, Zince, and B6.
The doctors had her on birth control pills for about a month to force her to have a period but they made her feel terrible. I read your website cover to cover and would really like to get her off ALL these pills. I did take her off the birth control pills and began the progesterone therapy a week ago. We are applying 200mg of the Natpro in the morning and 200mg at night. We started at 100mg 2x/day but she experienced an increase in sadness so we increased it. Now we are experiencing a lot of sleepiness. Should we simply continue with the Natpro cream or alter the dosage (up or down)?
