Not sure what to do now
I'm a mess. I'm 50 years old and I hate living in this body I now possess. I have high cholesterol (treated with statins) that is genetic and a hypothyroid condition that is under control. My perimenopause symptoms continue to get worse and worse.
Three weeks ago I went and had a saliva test done. The clinic wanted me off my statins and on a natural cholesterol lowering regime. I got the results back from the test and it said my hormone levels were normal except for my progesterone which measured at 1300. So it's way too high and I'm back on my statins to lower the cholesterol since progesterone is a product of cholesterol.....so what is my body doing?
I have many of the symptoms of estrogen dominance, but the levels tested ok. I feel like a walking wreck: I cry at the drop of a hat, am moody, energy comes and goes, anxiety is bad, I've finally gotten sleep under control. I'm a very social person who is struggling to go out and sex, forget it.....I'm thinking seriously about having a hysterectomy to get the female parts out of me that are creating this stuff.....HELP!!!!!
