confused with where to go from here
Hi Wray, I have started another topic to yet again bend your ear. Im so grateful I have someone to help me here as Im sure I would give up without you!
As you will recall Im using 17.5mg of natpro daily and struggling on and off with estrogen dominance. I guess Im asking for reassurance that Im doing the right thing really.
I have been using this level for 6 weeks now and seemed to level out for a few days after the inital onset of estrogen dominance, infact I started to feel really good.Then for some reason the symptoms return. I have increased natpro in desperation by another 1mg or so a day. this again seemed to help initially but a few days later Im back with the symptoms again. is this actually doing me any good whatsoever? as ive mentioned before at this amount its very expensive. is my body just a constant battle between estrogen and progesterone? I dont seem to be able to make progesterone dominant, whatever I do.
I am taking Vit D at 10,000 to 20,000ius daily and in the process of having a test done. I am taking glutamine at your suggestion, to no noticable affect.
I have read your other posts saying its ok to apply as and when and there is no set dose but doesnt this just produce symptoms as you increase one day and decrease the next? Also, I dont want to wait til i have terrible insomnia, morning anxiety, bloating, irritation and weepyiness before I increase the cream again. I expected to find a level where most symptoms would ease and after a while I would be able to reduce the cream to a more affordable level and use it around my cycle so I could try to conceive again.
Obviously Im finding life difficult at the moment with the constant return of these symptoms and dont feel im benefitting at all as each time I increase I only get a few days relief.Its like my body rejects it! Infact life is a real struggle now, so much than before when I would get these symptoms maybe a few days a month and know they would dissapate in a few days. Now I dont know when they will occur, when they will dissapate or how to carry on to achieve my aims. Can you advise what I should do? Can I start using the cream around my cycle again so I only get this half a month?
What is the quickest route to make progesterone dominant and be able to reduce to using a smaller more affordable amount around my cycle?
I do feel like I am repeating myself a lot so apologies for this. I believe estrogen is my problem as is demonstrated by the dominance but I really dont need any more proof of this!!!!
Thanks again, I think I would give up without your encouragement and guidance as Im sure many others would have too.
