34, no period, estrogen dominate with little to no progesterone
HI! So thankful for this site.
I'm 34- No period, with vaginal atrophy. Its AWFUL!!!!
This led me to have my labs done and I'm producing little to no progesterone, and very little estrogen but still classifies me as estrogen dominant. I'm super fit and active and have not had a cycle in over a year.
Based on my labs the MD put me on a 75mg progesterone pill and I gained weight RAPIDLY (8lbs in a couple months) I had mood swings, emotional crying fits, water retention, swollen ankles, headaches (all day, everyday)
When I called the MD they said this was a "PARADAXICAL" effect of the progesterone and advised me to stop it temporarily and increase my bio-identical testosterone cream.
I'm a mess emotionally, I have discontinued use of all HRT and started taking a DIM supp for the dominance. I'm still dealing with the vaginal atrophy.
I'm struggling. Please help a sista out.
