Nearly miraculous results for teen with PCOS but when and how to cut back?
My 15 year old daughter has been using Natpro for about 4 months. It was tricky very early on as estrogen dominance hit hard, but we increased the dose and that helped a lot. After about 3 and 1/2 months, suddenly everything changed almost overnight! No more random excessive bleeding. Absolutely no more PMS - my child was actually giddy 2-3 days leading up to her period. Earlier, we had gone off the Spironolactone which had been helping with acne and hair, which both started coming back at first then along with the other symptoms these have improved as well. She has better energy and mental health than I have seen in a very long time.
I understand from the website that it takes about 6 months - a year for the ovaries to be stimulated to produce a sufficient amount of their own progesterone. At what point should we begin cutting back and by what amount progressively? I have heard that long term use of progesterone cream can be problematic.
