Candida Worsens During Third Month of Progesterone Therapy
I've intestinal candida overgrowth for many years. It's difficult to say the least to get rid of, however I manage it and keep the levels down with diet and natural remedies.
I thought estrogen dominance was playing a role in my not being able to get rid of the candida so I started natural progesterone cream on a cycle (I'm still having periods). I've been doing about 160mg a day. For some reason this third month hasn't been successful. I have bad breast tenderness, water retention, and a terrible flare up of candida symptoms. Please advise! I'm so confused. The first two months were great and it felt like the candida was actually getting a little better. Thanks.
