I'm 29 years old and having struggled with my libido for a while I decided to read up on it. The one thing that stuck out for me was that the Contraceptive Pill is actually not a good thing to use. Therefore I stopped using it in January. Since then I have had extremely irregular periods, never very heavy. Approximately 2 months ago I went to see the doctor as the bleeding would just suddenly start and about 3 days later stop, just to start again about 1 1/2 to 2 weeks later.
The doctor had me go for blood tests and informed me that it would seem that I'm not ovulating and that the test levels indicate that I might have PCOS and/or a Thyroid problem.
Once again I started reading and came to the conclusion that I'm estrogen dominant and obtained the Natural Progestrone cream.
I started bleeding 29 August and continued for 2 weeks until 12 September. What was interesting is that around 6 September the bleeding became heavy for about 2/3 days and tapered off like I'm use to with a normal menstrual cycle.
I started using the cream 17 September as I have no idea if and when I ovulate. I use 1ml in the mornings and the same in the evenings. And then I started bleeding again 21 September, somewhat sooner that I expected.
My question is:
Should I continue to use the cream straight through the month/s or should I increase the amount I use or should I stop while bleeding and start again, but when should I start again as I don't know when I ovulated as I already mentioned.
Your advice would be highly appreciated.
