migraines and when to stop progesterone cream?
(Colorado Springs )
Hello, thank you so much for your caring and knowledgeable information. I have been a migraine sufferer ever since I started my menstrural cycle at 14 year old. I'm now 39 and happened upon your website after researching breast tenderness relief. About the beginning of January my breasts became unbearablely sore and the pain never stopped. My migraines became more frequent to about 3 or 4 days a week and my mood swings were high. I've always thought the migraines were due to hormones. After reading your information on progesterone cream I started using 400 mg of progesterone daily starting on February 4th. The breast tenderness stopped for awhile and my migraines were dulled but still there. So on February 18th I upped my dosage to 500 mg a day spliting it up between morning and evening. I'm feeling much better and to my surprise my mojo has also returned. My cycles are normally between 21 and 24 days and I have already had one but there was very light bleeding. I'm so afraid to stop the cream for fear the migraines and tenderness will return. I read that if symptoms were severe that I could use the cream daily for a few months until they are stable. When do you think I should start to decrease the dosage or even stop when my period starts and then start using again when I ovulate? Thank you!
