How do I know if I'm using enough progesterone?
I've been using progesterone for several years, and it hasn't helped a bit. After reading your site, I read that if I don't use enough I will be in a state of constant estrogen dominance. Finally all this is making sense.
I increased to 100mg for the last 4 days of my luteal phase (which was where I was in my cycle when I found your site) and had immediate improvement. I stopped on the day before my period and still felt good for a few days. I noticed, however, that my craving for sweets increased to more than usual and my skin started getting more rashy than usual. Since progesterone was helping in those areas, I started using some even though it was only day 7. I am not feeling better, although the rash has improved about 50%.
Am I doing this wrong? How do I know if I'm using enough? Should I have just continued to wait until I ovulated and let things get better then? Thank you for your help.
