I have found your site very helpful and wanted to get your perspective on my issues.
A little history: I’ve never had PCOS (my symptoms searches often lead to that), out of the ordinary cycle troubles (besides some months with heavy bleeding and cramping but nothing over the counter meds couldn’t help), or weight issues. I have 3 children. I have had a miscarriage and an ectopic pregnancy. In my mid to late twenties I began developing facial hair and causing me to major stress. I have noticed over the years a pattern during my cycle that there was less growth but didn’t keep an accurate account so I can’t be certain of when during the cycle it was less growth. A few weeks ago I was thinking back to the ectopic pregnancy. During that time my dr gave me progesterone. It was during taking it, my facial hair cleared up and I remember feeling very calm. After recently recalling that, I did some research on progesterone and came across your site and ordered immediately.
From reading on your site I have other things I feel the need to share:
I was on birth control pills in my early twenties.
During stressful times I have a major increase in facial hair growth.
My growth is primarily on my chin and my neck. I do have some on my upper lip but waxing keeps that under control.
I do believe I have blood sugar issues- I get shaky between meals and if I eat something sweet, I feel better.
I’m still breastfeeding. Even though I wasn’t having periods, I started the cream as soon as it arrived. Then a few days later I got my first period. Is it likely that the progesterone that I just started using made me start back or just a coincidence that it happened at the same time? Is it safe to use it while nursing? She nurses 6-8 times a day.
I’m applying the cream 3-4 times a day and using around 200-250 ml.
As I mentioned, I just started my period back after an absence of about 22 months. Should I stop using it after ovulation? So far with this period it has been very heavy but no cramping. I’m pretty surprised and hoping it the cream working!
I am desperate to get this facial hair under control! What is your recommendation for me on using the cream (my whole cycle, part of the cycle??)? Do you have any other ideas on what I can do?
I apologize for the length. Thank you in advance for any help or insight!
