Can Progesterone help me?
Hi there... to whoever is reading this! Last month I turned 43 and would like to become pregnant with our second child.
My back story: I had our daughter at age 39. Great pregnancy. After she was born up until now, I have had the most stress I've ever had in my life involving a huge move out of state, loss of a close parent, a nasty court battle with a step parent and a miscarriage last December of 2009. I recall doing some saliva tests to check hormone levels almost two years ago. My testosterone was less than 5. Estriodol 1.2, Progesterone 117, DHEA 2, Cortisol 5.1. Before the failed pregnancy I began acupuncture last October of 2009. At that time I also noticed a lump in my right breast about the size and shape a of small grape. The ultra sound showed a cyst which is painful when I happen to feel it. The TCM is telling me my liver energy is very weak and it's not improving. I've also recently notice some pains in my back. Now, for the first time I missed a period in March, had one in April, missed again in May. I took your questionnaire and scored 46.
I just want to feel better and begin having a regular period again so maybe I can try to conceive. But, how do I begin taking progesterone if I have no idea where I am in my cycle? I bet I'm not ovulating.
When I go see my doctor she wants to put me on Provera? Can you help me please? Thanks so much! =)
