morning after pill

by Anonymous

Dear Wray,

I was doing great on my progesterone at 10-20 mg daily-2 weeks out of month . My boyfriend and i had a problem which put me in such a scare that i took the morning after pill. I got my period early and then the symptoms really started to increase mostly fatigue, mood swings and anxiety- the following cycle. I had to increase my p cream the last two weeks of my luteal cycle to 20-40mg daily. I could not go without it even during my period which was 5 days late.

I took the pill on 4/4
period on 4/18
that cycle was okay, usual.

This one was rough-
5/1 or so had to increase dosage as i said above.
period late 5 days
have not been able to take p break for 2 weeks as usual.

Question is- Did that pill slam me right back into estrogen dominance and side effects???

I have been a psycho-emotional wreck with anxiety constantly for the past 14 days.

Please help

upped dosage again

Dear Wray,

I upped my dosage yesterday to 100mg p cream throughout the day. I got relief which was great because other anxiety supps like 5htp and gaba made the anxiety way worse. I know you say to use 100-200mg daily but that is usually too much. I am not so psycho today. By evening last night, i about felt normal and the breathing-sighing and shallow breaths got better. I wanted to have nightsweats last night after my last dose but didnt-i could feel my body on the verge. It's been 8 hours since that dose and i'm not sure if i should dose again so soon but i'll see how the morning goes. maybe i'll try 10-20mg. what would you say??? i'm super curious.

I still would love your input and your opinion on that 'pill' i took and it's effects and how long those effects hang around...

also, when i get to a stabilising dose, what do i do during my period and how do i decrease?

Hope you find some time to get back to me and if so, thanks in advance. It means a lot to me right now as my own hormone doc is insistent on never going above 20 mg.

Hi Wray,

Do you know if adrenal cortex glandulars help anxiety if the anxiety is adrenal fatigue? There are so many differing views on the supplement. I know that Wilson says that the cortex extract helps to normalize adrenal function and Lam strongly argues against them unless it is a mild fatigue as they can be overstimulating. It's so confusing.

I'm only on day 2 of using the supp so i'm looking out for signs. So far I'm not racier but not sure as i said i wake up a bit racy in the a.m.

Any clues would be great.
