Peri-menopause or Menopause?
by: Patty

Hi. I am so sorry to hear you are feeling so bad. I am new to the site. Are you still going through peri-menopause or menopause?

It sounds like that is a lot of what you are feeling.

Feeling bad again
by: Joy

Hi Karen

As Wray is taking some well deserved rest I will answer as best I can.

The thing to remember with progesterone is that stress is a major contributing factor and turning 50 often affects women. Are you getting enough magnesium and have your changed your diet at all?

May I suggest that you decrease the amount of progesterone that you are using and avoid ALL grains, legumes and sweet starchy fruits and vegetables. These food are simply not good for any of us as they cause allergies and a number of adverse symptoms.

You are taking 10 000iu's of vitamin D daily, do you actually know what your vitamin D level is? If it is not up high it could also be a reason why you are feeling bad again as a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone.

Hope this helps.
