3 Weeks on Prog..Placing order for NatPro but Please ASSIST ME!!!!!
HELLO :) I am a month away from turning 36...I Have always been healthy and fit (with an insatiable sweet tooth, however)..weighing between 105-108 ideally.. After having my 3rd child, 2.5 years ago, i lost the weight fairly quickly with vigorous exercise and watching my diet and was extemely fit at age 34-35 with 3 kids. After i hit 35, i noticed a small change in weight, and i had to work a little harder to be thin, but it was doable... At 35.5+ my tummy got loose a little loose.. And the last 3 months i have felt sluggish, with EXTREME PMS moodiness and depression, lethargy to the point of being flu-like...and i developed headaches... I am weighing 112-113, and carry the few extra in my stomach, which was totally flat before and in thighs/butt. It is very noticable on my small frame. I got my hormones tested via blood test: and my Dr did not do it according to my period.
testosterone was low but i don't know the #
Thyroid (t3) 3.5
Did not test vit D because it is very expensive and Dr said i am low, we live in Utah
I started on Prog trouches 75mg. Natural thyroid 65 mg. Iron supps. Adrenal Gland support supplement. and began taking some vit D drops that i have at home, and also taking a raw vitamin supplement...
Of course because of the low dose of Prog, i felt absolutely aweful for 2 weeks...lethargic, sleepy, headach, tearful, bloated and i looked pregnant!!...I had a few days of energy/mixed with terrible anxiety.. and even thought i had the full blown Flu at one point!!!!
After reading thru your site i increased my 1-75mg tab to 6 tabs (450mg) and it took about 2 days but felt better each day and currently i feel amazing...And this is day 7 on the higher dose... This is my pms time where i usually freak out (i did feel pms symptoms and yesterday, day 29 in my cycle i was a mess, angry and irritale with anxiety) but today i feel great...
I also stoppped my thyroid medicine during the time i was tweaking the Prog dose, to make sure the thyroid med wasn't causing me issues..I ahve resumed taking it but only 1/2 dose this week 32mg becaue it gives me alittle anxiety..but it is lessening each day and i will resume full dose in another few days...
I am runnng out of Prog Trouches and i would like to get NatPro ASAP and try it...based on all this info, please pleas PLEASE Im begging you, give me some advice!!!! I cannot afford (mentally/physically) to start this process all over.. any advice on supplements and prog doses would be greatly greatly appreciated...if i am happy with NatPro i will be a customer for life! i am very loyal when i am pleased. thank you!!!!!
