Just started using Progesterone Cream
Well today is the first day I started using the cream. I'm starting with 1/4 tsp twice a day hoping that it cures some of my problems.
I'm 30 years old, been married for 12 years, no kids. However, Sept 08 I went into preterm labor at 31 weeks and my son was stillborn. I have struggled with fertility for years probably related to this condition. After having my son, I started noticing major changes about 3 months after. My periods were not coming at all at first... then they came and well kinda never left... bleeding only slightly somedays. I went to the GYN where they discovered the my uterine lining was thick. Even after multiple pills the lining is still thick and yes am still been doing the weird bleeding thing.
About 5 months after that things really started going downhill... my skin was horrible, very dry, even my lips and eyes, my hair was falling out (BADLY), I was very tired (although I wasn't anemic), I was unmotivated and was growing very depressed at my rapid decline in health. I gained an extreme amount of weight while I was pregnant (50 pounds)... but it is slowly coming off now.
At my last appointment the doctor wanted to try another type of birth control which I declined. I did some research and decided that perhaps using the cream will help. So far all is well. I didn't have a reaction to the cream (I have sensative skin) so that was promising. I immediately felt peaceful if that makes any sense.
I'm wondering if this is actually going to help, but at this point I have nothing to lose. I don't have a regular cycle to start using the cream before ovulation, so I just went for it. Can anyone tell me what they would suggest for getting my cycle normal again? Should I use the cream for 14 days and then off for 5 or 21 and then off for 7?
Help would be greatly appreciated.
