I am wondering if there are withdrawal symptoms from natural progesterone and if so, how long they last? I was diagnosed with estrogen dominance but, wonder if it's more AFS. Labs in follicular phase (drawn on approximately day 12) .5 progesterone, 153 estrogen(s), 20 cortisol (8 am draw). Also, I have had endometrial ablation but, light spotting on the first day of cycle.
I was prescribed Vitamin B12, folic acid, fish oil, and Vitamin D as well as, 400 mg of natural progesterone cream and told to apply to fatty areas once per day. The first 10 days I experienced severe side effects (nausea, dizziness, breast tenderness, crying, extreme anxiety) with a decrease in symptoms over the next 8 days. By day 20 side effects returned and I was told to discontinue for 1 week and reintroduce each supplement one week at a time. I have been off all supplements for 5 days and natural progesterone for 2. Prior to original symptoms (extreme anxiety, forgetfulness, brain fog) I had experienced several stressful events very close together (death, divorce, home purchase and relocation). I wonder if I have been misdiagnosed? HELP!
