Having really bad vertigo and late with period!
I could use some advice. I'm a week late and going to take a home pregnancy test tomorrow morning. I have been taking a prescription Bio-Identical Progesterone cream. When I started the cream in Jan.2011, switching from sublingual tabs which made me feel awful, I noticed a difference the first cycle taking 100mg at night. By the third month I was feeling better when I took 50mg. at night. I got blood results confirming my levels were in a normal mid range of 14.23. Before the cream I was 1.2. I think this is why I felt more like myself instead of dizzy and tired or nauseous when I took more. I then went to a N.D. because I had insurance for 10 visits. He believed I was too young not to be producing sufficient progesterone on my own and suggested taking me off my cream and supplementing with Vitex, Evening Primrose Oil, and Omegas. The first month I felt fine but by the third month I was terrible. A blood test confirmed a level of 1.2 again. I went back on immediately and am in the forth cycle. I again last month felt bad even with 50mg. at night, so I took half at 12.5mg. a day. I felt more like myself but a little tired and lightheaded at times. Also have had bad vertigo before, during, and after period the last two months.
Now I'm a week late and scared I'm on too low of an amount. I miscarried Mar.2011 at 10 wks., six years before at 12wks. I'm 35 now. What amount should I up my cream to? Or should I be taking vaginal suppositories? Will be seeing a Dr. and getting levels checked next week. Please Help.
