I am 33 and had my hormones tested in July. I have low progesterone 32pg/mL everything else was in range. My Estradiol was 1.5pg/mL which was in range but the ratio of the two is off. I just don't understand WHY I have melisma if my estrogen isn't high!
I was on progestin only birth control for about 6 months 2 years ago and once I came off of it (horrible sadness and hair loss) I developed melisma almost over night. I have read that progesterone cream could help but also could make it worse.
Anyone have any luck clearing melisma with progesterone cream? I am nervous to try as it might make it worse. I am at a loss. My self esteem is all but gone at this point. I've avoided the sun this summer and now my Vit. D has suffered.
