Not sure if you know about it but there is Biodentical Progesterone which is also called Micronized Prometrium and it does have some side effects but not anything substantial. I have estrogen dominance and got prescribed some of this, 100 mg supposedly 1x a day. What I want to know is if I should be taking biodentical estrogen along with the Prometrium to balance out my hormones or not?
I had a blood test done and my progesterone level is 0.5 (almost gone) and high level of globulin which clearly indicates estrogen dominance and which in turn has created my estrogen dominance and caused my thyroid problem (hashimotos thyroiditis) and I have IBS C and low stomach acid and candida yeast overgrowth and parasites.
I am only 56 but I feel like I am falling apart and no doctor I have been to yet wants to help me get well. The last quack I saw said all of my symptoms are in my head. Right. Even my thyroid medication (Armour Thyroid 1/4 grain) doesn't want to work right. It makes me look scary wired and get all bitchy. lol. Blood tests also said I was Post Menopausal. I am not Post, I am currently going thru it because I am still having Hot flashes. Not a lot but when I do have them my face turns beet red and I get sweaty hot.
What the hell is wrong with me? HELP.
