Getting rid of excessive belly fat while keeping my hair
Although I've lost 94 pounds and am now at 146 pounds, I look like I'm 9 months pregnant!! I've been losing everywhere but my stomach. Does this mean I'm estrogren dominant?
I had an ooferectomy (ovaries and uterus removed) due to endometrial cancer. I wasn't a candidate for hormone replacement therapy because of varicose veins and a chance of blood clots.
I heard that someone in my situation should be taking progesterone creme. So I started on 20 mg (metered pump) of natural progesterone twice a day of Progesta-Care by Life-flo. I'm also taking DIM to help balance out my hormones. What do you think about taking DIM with the yam creme?
Regarding the Progesterone creme, I'm concerned about the dosage. It may not be enough to overcome the androgen effect. I've already lost a lot of hair and I'm beginning to get a lot of cravings which I haven't experienced in the past 6 months.
I wonder if the absorption rate of the natural yam is more potent than that of a synthetic progesterone which would account for the low dosage of 20 mg.
