Dry Mouth

Because of estrogen dominant symptoms , I have upped my use of progesterone to around 400mg a day which I spread out many times over the course of the day. I have been doing this for almost a month now and I am experiencing extremely dry mouth. I do not take any medications so I feel
strongly that it must be from progesterone. Any one else have a similar experience? Does it eventually go away?

Same Problem

I'm having the same problem. I've only been taking Progesterone for a few months and it's progressively getting worse.

I'm very uncomfortable and seriously considering discontinuing it.

I'm having a serious decline in gum health, which I think is associated to dry mouth. I'm not sure that it's worth it.

Dry Mouth

There is a higher incidence to dry mouth and eyes with Burning Tongue Syndrome. In it's most severe form it's called Sjogren's Syndrome, estrogen is always high. This becomes more of an issue when in Menopause. I also suffered terribly with this and still do. Progesterone has certainly helped me, but I still have it and guess it is something that I will have to live with. Certain drugs seem to make it worse too.
