On Progesterone pill and having weight problems?
by A. Daimon
So after 3 years of severe inadequate Luteal phase, and a doctor perscribing BC pills for 2 of them, I finally got myself to a new doctor and onto 200mg progesterone for 12 days. It has been about 8 months since I started the Progesterone. For the last 2 months, since most of the side effects have abated, I have noticed when I am on the pills, that I am lathargic and feel like I have lead sitting in my stomach when I eat protein and have not been able to lose weight. I have tried everything and nothing works. I was wondering if anyone else has these problems or something similar? I realize it sounds odd. I kinda think that the Progesterones too high for me, I have had a blood test, but my current OBGYN never looked at it when she gave me the prescription...
Starting having severe ILP: 19 yrs old
Vitamins to combat the lethergy: High dose Vitamin B, and Ginsing (doesn't show a difference)
I do plan to talk to my doctor, I am just exhausting all my possiblities because they are just either going to tell me that what I am feeling is normal (How can feeling ill be "normal"?) or they think I'm psychosomatic...
