(nervous) wreck after 2 months progesterone
Maybe I'm crazy but I actually started using natural progesterone cream without doing a saliva test first....I just read about all the symptoms of having low progesterone and/or estrogen dominance and decided to give it a shot. My periods have always been quite heavy and increasingly so, I've had acne most of my adult life (I am now 42), have been getting increasingly fatigued and foggy brained and had a miscarriage in March. I know I am VitD and iron deficient but I didn't feel those were the only things giving me problems...
I also find it very hard to relax, don't sleep well and I can't even remember when my belly wasn't bloated!
So, about 2 months ago, I started taking Organic Excellence natural progesterone cream. So far, my symptoms have just been getting worse so I started doing some research and ended up on this website where the answer to just about anything seems to be: use more progesterone!
I discussed increasing the amount with the lady from who's website I bought the cream but she didn't think it was a good idea. I'm scared of increasing the amount of cream but I'm also getting so fed up with feeling like a (nervous) wreck!
I should probably mention that I'm using an Ayurvedic VitD cream as well, because I didn't want to take it orally since I feel that my liver isn't too happy either ;)
So I guess that's my story....I really hope someone can shed some light on this for me, many thanks in advance!!
Much love, health and happiness to all who read this <3
