Have tried, am nervous to try again
(Los Angeles, CA)
Hi Wray, I've read a lot of info. on your website and do have a couple of questions, as some of the things you talk about differ a little bit from other research I've done (in the holistic realm) insofar as the need for "natural" progesterone is concerned.
I've read that we don't have a "lack" of progesterone, rather an overabundance of estrogen. I recently used another brand of natural, pharm-grade estrogen which is in a coconut oil carrier. It may have been too potent, I'm not sure. I had waaay too much uterine tissue build up and bled like crazy after I stopped using it. An expensive doctor's bill later, now I'm scared to use it again. The doctor who formulated that brand said that I have too many xeno-estrogens and phyto-estrogens in my system and have to clean them out for a couple of months before trying it again. I already have an organic lifestyle so I'd need to go even more extreme and it's impossible to avoid them all, especially living in LA and in the long term. I would rather avoid getting an Rx for the compounding pharmacy and having side effects from an oral dose (eg. sleepiness), but do want to help my body balance and avoid a potential miscarriage. Do you have feedback on this, especially in light of your own product you've formulated? Thank you.
