Need some input
I started Natpro 4 days ago, 100 mg in AM and PM each. 42 years old with many symptoms of perimenopause, since after my last pregnancy in 2012. Spotting for days before every period since that last pregnancy, passing clots during period with two days of very heavy bleeding, extreme anxiety most of the time and also developed severe anxiety episodes that started after that pregnancy also, heart palpitations with no physiological cause (everything cardio was tested and OK), perioral dermatitis, cystic acne, nails peeling, gums aching (weird one!)...and a general feeling of losing my mind, while every blood test comes back seemengly fine.
I did ZRT saliva testing on my own (GYN looks down on it) and got 79 pg/ml Progesterone and 1.6 pg/ml Estradiol, with a ratio of 49. GYN said all the numbers are fine (he ran blood tests also), recommended no therapy and said that good diet an exercise should help :(. As I feel at the end of my rope, I decided to start progesterone cream on my own. Started Natpro 4 days ago (100 mg AM and PM each) and so far feel NO difference either way. I do have VERY achy legs below the knees since yesterday - could this be related to the cream?
I guess I am just looking for some input as to whether my symptoms sound like possible estrogen dominance, regardless of my OBGYN dismissing everything as "normal"??
This seems like a very supportive community and I appreciate any input!
