Here’s my story

Since having children I became aware of a pattern of physical and mental behaviours my body would show. My pregnancies would be dream like and I become the most calm loving positive person, however days after my babies are born came the depression, the insomnia and fatigue which has got increasingly worse with each child, each post partum period.

My children are now aged 10, 7 and 2 and this whole time I have been searching for answers to do with my health. I also suffer with histimine intolerance, constant sleep anxiety due to feeling wired at night and blood sugar issues, major mood swings, painful periods, receding hairline 🤭.

Anyway I’ve been on the progesterone Creme for one month now, my mood seems balanced, my period wasn’t painful, I strangely today started seeing new hair growth around the hair line. I’m excited to see how I feel over this next cycle. I am 33 years old and still having a regular monthly cycle. Interestingly my mom went through menopause at 40. I’m hoping progesterone Creme will give me another few decades before menopause.

Sounds like you're on the right track, what dosage did you start with?
I'm hoping it helps me too.

It seems that you suffered from PND after the birth of your children, many women suffer from it. Have you been tested for Insulin Resistance? Painful periods could mean that you have Endometriosis or Fibroids, have you been tested for these? High testosterone levels can cause hair loss.

I am pleased that progesterone is helping you, but please make sure that you use enough, using too little will aggravate your estrogen receptors, between 100-200mg is needed. If your monthly cycle is regular then use the cream while following your cycle i.e. your luteal phase as explained on the 'How to use Progesterone Cream' page. If your monthly periods continues to be painful, may I suggest that you test for Endo and Fibroids.

Please also make sure that your Vitamin D3 level is correct, optimal range is between 70-100ng/ml and nothing less than 5'000ius is needed per day. A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone.

Am I on the right track?

Thanks for your comments,

I’m currently taking two doses of 20mg. I did try and take a higher dose at the beginning but I found I became really tired and lethargic???

I’m still having some days where I am estrogen dominant which causes me high histimine levels. Like last night which caused me anxiety during the day and insomnia at night. I usually take an antihistamine and that’s effective in getting me to sleep. I get so frustrated though as I have had three great nights this week where I fell asleep on my own (I usually take melatonin) I did wake up at 4-5 am each mornkng unable to get back to sleep. Then I have these random days and nights where I’m anxious and wired. It’s such a yo-yo effect.

When I first started taking the progesterone I had a few blissful days, it was amazing, then came a week of daily estrogen dominance symptoms. And now I definitely seem more balanced but have the odd days where the estrogen dominance and histimine levels are peaking.

I really hope I’m on the right track with all this.

Your thoughts would be amazing :)
