Just a couple of symptoms I can't get rid of
I am now 45. I have been dealing with unbalanced hormones since I was 37. I have been through it all. I was told I was to young for these problems. All they had to offer was BC pills, water pills and antidepressants. After several doctors I am now on armour for thyroid. I take estro factors by metagenics. It helps metabolize excess estrogen. I am estrogen dominate. Overall I am so much better then I was. I still feel I am not quite right overall. The main symptoms that are always there though is bloating and weight gain. I had read in a book that increasing my progesterone to around 200mg would help. Well it did. It was wonderful not to be bloated and the weight came off. Well it lasted for about a cycle and its been going right back on. It is about two cycles later and I am bloated right back up and the weight is on again. I always hated going off the progesterone because my symptoms would go crazy. I would take it through day 26. Most of the time my period would start that day. My dr. wanted me to wait till day 10 to start the progesterone. I would not even get close to that. Most of the time I start back on day 3 or 4.
So now that I have found this sight and natpro what do you recommend? 400 - 500 and not stopping for a couple months?
Sorry if this is all jumbled up. I would appreciate any help. By the way I am off all grains, legumes, dairy and sugar. I eat nothing processed. There is absolutely no way I could control bloating and weight if I ate any of that.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
