Natpro while still having a cycle and very overweight
I have just bought 3 of the Natpro and would like advice on how to use it.
I am 47 and a half. I have regular cycles but they have shortened from 28 to 24. The bleed is quite light this past 18 months and lasts only 3 days.
I am absolutely exhausted all the time, I am getting hot legs at night (no sweats) is this a hot flash? I am not sure if my oestrogen is very low and may also need supplementation. I am already on an anti depressant for 4 years due to anxiety that I had all the time and severe rumination. I would love not to take it at all.
I am 3 stone over weight and have been for 12 years. I think I may have insulin resistance as well. Recently my doctor did a test and I scored low for Vit D so I am just starting supplementation on this.
How can I know if I am low in oestrogen as well? My GP is no help and I don't have much money for a lot of tests.
Also I see that in menopause the idea is to become progesterone dominant. Can this not bring on its own problems? Could some of the excess needed convert to oestrogen or testosterone? Should I become progesterone dominant now to stop symptoms?
