Help, severe hair loss after starting progesterone
I am a 38 year old who began all natural progesterone cream approximately 6 weeks ago and almost immediately startded losing my hair. It has helped with decreasing spotting before my periods but that has been all.
I have read that it takes time and I increased the progesterone as well as added a B-12 and zinc supplement. I have read on one website that progesterone cream is highly fat soluble and within weeks or months can saturate the fat tissue with hormones and it will stop working or symptoms will worsen... one doctor recommended applying the cream to the mucous epithelial membranes that line the vagina. This apparantly has the hormone enter the same pelvic plexus of veins that your ovaries normally empty into. This same doctor also suggests (because progesterone is normally cyclical) to change the concentration....applying 14 days before expected mensus and stopping a day or two before mensus (starting on day 12 and stopping on day 26).
I am so confused and anxious about the hairloss I don't know how long I can continue with the progesterone. I would love to hear some advice.
