Any way to block Progesterone receptors?
(San Francisco, CA)
Dear Wray, I lose a large amount of hair through shedding which increases the week before and during my menstrual cycle, then slows back down only to repeat prior to my cycle again. This would suggest that my hair follicles are sensitive to the rise in Progesterone.
I am 37 years old and have regular cycles. I do not take any prescription drugs or hormones. I do take iron supplements, liposomal vitamin-D, EPA/DHA fish oils, B-vitamins and a multivitamin. Can you suggest anything that I might do to block the reaction of the natural rise in progesterone from affecting my hair follicles? Much in the way that DIM helps with blocking Estrogen receptors, do you know of anything that does the same for Progesterone? Thank you for the help!
