ok, taking the plunge
by Glynda-Lee Hoffmann
After spending 2 days on this website reading everything I could about Hashimoto's and progesterone, I ordered my 3 pumps to get started. I've been on high estrogen BHRT, did my calculations and right now I'm about 10:1, so I know I need to increase my progesterone to at least 100:1. Not quite sure how to start, but hopefully I'll get some answers.
I wrote most of my story, not nearly as bad as some others I read. Mostly wanting to stop waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to get back to sleep. I think I've been estrogen dominant most of my life, heavy periods after my first daughter was born, severe post-partum depression, systemic inflammation, insomnia. I'd read, several years ago about progesterone's healing powers but couldn't find this website, nor any way to purchase progesterone without a doctor's prescription. I don't like my current doctor, was about to pay another doc several hundred to begin a natural healing protocol for my Hashimoto's, figured I'd give progesterone a go before that.
Wish me luck :)
