Does my 14 y.o. son need Progesterone?
I am on your progesterone at a high level (800-1000 mg/day)and I am finally starting to feel better. I am accustomed to a daily migraine and that has stopped! I am sleeping much better and my irritability is improving. I was on IM estrogen, testosterone, and progestin for years. I also had endometrial cancer in 07. I started having migraines when I was 16 y.o. I am 54 y.o currently. I also had a tubal pregnancy due to an IUD at 16 y.o. with emergency surgery that removed one Fallopian tube and cauterized both ovaries. I have had hormone issues since then. I saw an endocrinologist in Texas who said my migraines were a lack of estrogen and testosterone thus the IM injections of mega doses of these hormones which made me feel somewhat better, but the dose kept going up until the time I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. I had a complete hysterectomy in 07. At that time I stopped all HRT. I accidentally found your website while trying to figure out what to do next especially since I was still having so many migraines. When I started Natpro I felt horrible for about 2 months until I figured out that I needed to use more than a standard dose. I am finally starting to feel better...thank God!
My question today is in regards to my 14 y.o. son. He is tired all the time, slightly overweight and complains of man boobs! He constantly craves sugar and carbohydrates. Could he have estrogen dominance and need progesterone? If so, how do I give it to him? Also, I have ordered your energy formula. Should I give that to him as well? If so, how much? Also, could I have passed my problem on to him in utero? I saw a huge change in his whole persona when he turned 6,7,8 years old. He went from being a gregarious, active, child to being very sedentary and slightly unmotivated. He is a dear precious young man and I want to help him. Can you advise me?
Thank you so much!
