Hi Karen The NHS is not very efficient, probably because it's government run. You will have to take control of your own healing as so many of us have. If you have low progesterone you will need to supplement to bring your level up. I feel you'll need at least 400mg/day if you have flooding periods. But you'll also need to take at least 2000mg/day NAC (N-acetyl cysteine), 2000mg/day taurine, at least 5000 iu per day vitamin D (dependant on your level) and 1000mg/day bioflavonoids. There's more info on our page about Menstruation. Please have a vitamin D test done, it's usually very low in people living in the UK. A lack is possibly a cause of fibroids, it can certainly shrink them, see here, here, here, here, here and here. If you'd like to chat to someone in the UK, please contact Julienne via her website here. Take care Wray

Hi Karen There's no accounting for how doctors will view results! I gave you the link to Julienne, please contact her. She can also help you with advise about the vitamin D, as I know your level will be low. Take care Wray
