Before my question, I just wanted to say that, as always, I appreciate you and your time spent helping us.
I've written in a couple of times over the past year. My begining ratio was 8:1, I've been using NATPRO for a year now and plan to have my numbers retested in the near future. I'm 42, so def in perimenopause and had such a low ratio to begin with, I knew I was in for a battle. My question is: I'm up to 500mg/day of the cream(along with 5,000 VIT D and a magnesium supplement daily). My periods have gotten worse, lasting anywhere from 10-20 days per month, but generally light over that time, just a couple days of heavyness and clotting. But, it's thrown me into anemia and now I have a low platelette count on top of it. So I started taking Calcium D Glucarate, hoping (praying) to help speed up the process of eliminating extra estrogen. And now my periods are worse. Heavy, long, cramping and tons of clots. I'm worried that I'm somehow overdoing it? And with my other issues (so fun being a middle aged woman) I worry that I'm on the wrong track. Any ideas here? Do I scale back the amount of cream I'm using? Use more during my cycles? I'm running out of body real estate to apply more cream, but maybe up my dosage to 600mg? Any ideas/advice are appreciated.
