7 weeks on bioidentical progesterone and feel worse
I have just found your website, and feel better for all the reading I have been doing. I live in Australia, and have been on bioidentical progesterone trouches for 7 weeks now, and feel much WORSE.
I am 50 yrs old, and perimenopausal. And feel AWFUL.....
I don't know where to start. I work full time, and can't sleep, feel edgy, anxious, hot, sweaty and feel like I have a knot in my stomach. I really want to try and persist with the progesterone treatment, but I am not sure it is for me. I have lost confidence in it. I started on a low dose of 75 mg trouche and gradually the Dr. has been increasing, because of estrogen dominance (which I have learnt alot anout from your website).
I am now on 300 mg trouche at night, but still no relief.
(I feel I am getting worse, the anziety is terrible). It seems to be stimulating me, not making me calm at all.
Have you ever heard this before.? I am the exact opposite, to how I should feel.
I am now having a 4 night total break, from the trouches, to try to bring on a period, to ease the estrogen dominance effect.
I realise this all takes time, but can I ask you for your opinion please?? I also have joint aches, in my hips.
Can I please have your opinion on trouches vs cream also. I will be happy to order some cream from you, if I give up on this treatment. (I paid for 3 mths treatment.)
Many thanks for your terrific website, it is a wonderful support.
Best regards, *** pls advise. **
