Low to no progesterone at 25 years
Help!! I'm 25 years old and have a beautiful 3 year old daughter. My problems started after she was born.
Six weeks after I gave birth I started getting my period every 2 weeks. My doctor put me on a birth control pill to help regulate it. It went back to normal 28 day cycle. When I stopped breast feeding 5 months later I went off that pill as it was low dose safe to take while breast feeding. Wanting to see if my period would straighten out I stayed off any type of b.c. with that I had no period for 3 months. Finally got my period back for a couple months went back to the doc and back on Alesse. Everything was working good.
Last July of 2009 I went off the pill as we wanted to conceive our second child. My period came every 30+ days for 2 months then stopped. It came back in Dec. just in time for our trip to Mexico of course and that has been the last time I have had a period.
My doc tested my hormones and I have very very low progesterone. He put me on some pills which would start my period then take another dose after 19th day of cycle. However, my period would end and start up again within a week. Frusterating me and my doc. Finally got through 19 days and things started going back to normal. He wanted me to continue the process for 3 months which I did after that I went off everything and my period stopped again. My doc has referred me to a ob/gyn which I will see tomorrow but I am so clueless as to what questions to ask.
Has anyone had the same thing happen to them? If so what worked and what didn't. I have had normal periods my whole life up until after my daughter was born. I was on Alesse for about 4 years before and got pregnant while on it. I have neck and facial hair growing, i'm tired and trying to lose weight but nothing is happening. I'm frusterated and I want to get pregnant. Help!
