Over the last 2.5 years I have been telling my doctors that something is wrong with my female organs, I specifically asked my gyn if it was related to my hormones as all of this started after having my last child 2.5 years ago.
I started out with sleep problems and kept snowballing... Inability to loose weight, severe fatigue and incredibly painful periods. My gyn blew me off by saying that I was too young to start going into menopause (I am 38.5 now), etc. I have seen several other doctors who could not tell me what was wrong and just said "Your test results are normal, we can't help you". And my gyn refused to do any hormone testing.
I found a regular MD who uses ZRT saliva testing and did the big test. Progesterone was very low, around 100. Everything else was normal. I had been using a progesterone cream (I forget the name of it now) and it was helping somewhat.
Last week I went to a new gyn and one of the first things he said was "It sounds like endometriosis, lets schedule a laprascopy and see whats going on." I am not sure that I want to jump right in and do the laprascopy with out trying some more natural options.
If I wanted to try a higher dose of the progesterone cream would I use this every day, except for when I get my period or can it be used on a continuous basis?
