I've been reading about the use of progesterone cream for the past several weeks now, however, I have read that there can be an exception when dealing with fibroids of a rather large nature.
When doing some research at another site, it stated that, if the fibroid was large (about the size of a grapefruit), that progesterone therapy is not suggested. Is this true? I have been taking progesterone for a couple of months now in the hopes of reducing two fibroids that fit in the as-large-as-a-grapefruit category. The progesterone I was using was simply something I bought at Whole Foods but I was trying to use enough to get my dosage up to about 100mg a day.
I feel terrible. I have gained weight despite my best efforts. When I say, despite my best efforts, I am in the process of training for a 1/2 Ironman, have been trying to eat 5-6 meals a day, have always juiced and shopped organic and have cut out the remaining sugar in my diet. My weight has gone nowhere.
I am convinced the progesterone has caused the weight gain but I also now have significant fatigue (not good when training for a triathlon). I just ordered the NatPro but I am concerned now that I should stop taking the progesterone given that the fibroids are so big (I look pregnant!). I was hoping I could not only benefit from the progesterone to decrease the fribroids, but also to give me some added energy. I am at a loss. Please help!!
