Depression like no other
by Christina Clark
I've been on every antidepressant in the book, and hospitalized several times, forced to take even more meds. I even had several holds placed against me because I was refusing meds, trying to explain to the doctors that I felt that there was something else wrong.
When I had my total hysterectomy, I was put on progesterone/estrogen pellets. They absorbed so quickly that I was unable to keep up with the expense. They tried shots, which didn't absorb at all. Then they just put me on Estratest. I was removed from that when my sister contracted breast cancer.
I've been searching for help. I've tried the suppositories, but they are so unpleasant, that I just couldn't keep up with it.
The depression is increasing. If this will help, you will have my endorsement for sure! I know that I had progestrone issues with both of my pregnancies. But it wasn't diagnosed until I came across a very knowledgeable OBGYN. He has since retired, and I've not found anyone who really knows anything about hormone therapy in regard to progesterone.
