Candida and Progesterone Therapy
Hi Wray, I wrote recently and told my story about having chronic intestinal candida as well as a bunch of symptoms relating to estrogen dominance for several years now. I began natural progesterone cream 7 days ago. I'm using approx 175mg per day divided into two doses a day.
My question is regarding the amount to use initially, when to start decreasing, and what a maintenance dose should be.
I'm wondering since I have a candida problem if I should be taking a higher dose to begin? I'm feeling candida relief some days, others it flares up. And how long should I take the higher dose? How do I know when to begin decreasing the dose and what is the maintenance dose we should take from there on in?
I've also had some water retention during these first days starting the cream. It seems the hair loss problem might be getting somewhat better though which is a plus.
Please advise. And again thanks so much for being such a help to all of us who feel so lost in these hormonal imbalance nightmares!
