I am 26 years old for years there has been something wrong with me hormonally- irregular periods, hirsutism, possible thyroid problems etc. Of course I could not rely on traditional doctors to diagnose me after years of trying to. So I did some research on my own and came across Dr. John Lees book. I had only used progesterone cream for 2 months and got pregnant! I have never been pregnant before so that was awesome. Unfortunately that ended in a strange miscarriage. I had the miscarriage "episode" with horrible contractions and everything, and I thought everything came out. Then almost 2 months later I was still bleeding lightly, and an emotional wreck(literally crying everyday for no reason). Then one day the fetal sac came out! I thought it had before but this was not bloody. It was round, slightly translucent and opaque in the middle and I could see the little capillaries. After that I felt a sense of relief, and the crying stopped.
So I decided to start using it again after the miscarriage, and I feel much better. I am expecting my period, so I stopped using the hormones a few days ago to try to be on the correct cycle, and yesterday I had a sudden out of the blue full blown panic attack. I was scared and wanted to leave work, but I drank a glass of water and decided to use a little progesterone cream and it really helped! I was shocked, i didn't think that it would work! Now I know its a hormonal imbalance for sure. I haven't done a saliva test but I'm going to order one, I am just scared of going off the progesterone! My main question is-should I stay on the progesterone even though I should be on my period right now? Also, how does that work, does your uterine lining keep building up? Is it safe to use progesterone straight through? I don't understand the process. Thank you so much for your time and helpful information, its a Godsend!
