Natural Progesterone Rapid Dissolving Tablets
Hello, I have been reading your forums and have actually requested an increase in my progesterone. I have gone from first using the progesterone creams 3 yrs. ago then reluctantly stared on 100 mg. Prometrium oral at night. However, I was aware you only get a certain percentage when taking it orally. But my Bio-Identical hormone Dr. does not like the cream, because he says it does not work. Well, he only uses a blood serum to get results and that is why he does not see any increase in levels. I had another Dr. my GYN put me on the Rapid dissolving tablets of progesterone 100 mg. first then 200 mg on second RX. Since reading your forum I have increased my Natural progesterone up to taking 400 mg. But I found I started being angry and snappy, just not myself. I was speaking with a woman a few days ago about this and she said she was also put on 100 mg. of progesterone however to start her periods, she was in her late 30's or early 40's at the time. She said the Natural progesterone did not make her period start, but she felt angry and she would snap at her family, she quit taking after a 3-4 mths. Next her Dr. put her on the promethium and her period started right away and she did not feel angry. I want to increase the progesterone but I do not want to feel that way again. Right now I am taking 1/2 of the RDT which is 100 mg. of progesterone. I also take BI-EST with testosterone during the day. I need to change my regimen because I have not been able to lose the 40-50 lbs I have put on starting 3 yrs. ago when all this menopause craziness started. Have you had anyone complain about bad side effects from Natural progesterone?
