Problems with nausea and month long period
Hello, I started using NatPro after reading Dr. Lee's book "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Pre-Menopause."
For many years, I've had severe PMS...mood swings, bloating, etc. Often, I was hesitant to blame my irritability on PMS, but after thinking it over a thousand times, I realized that I was always having these irrational break-downs around that time of the month. I talked with my OB/GYN about the situation and her solution was to either take anti-depressant meds or go on birth control. Both are not options for me. A friend told me about Dr. Lee's book and after getting through that wealth of information, I decided I would give progesterone cream a try.
I started taking 100mg of NatPro everyday and gradually went up to 200mg when I noticed my symptoms weren't improving. For a few weeks, I was starting to feel good. I was in absolute awe that this magical cream was ridding me of irritability and bloating. Unfortunately, it didn't last very long. After about one month on the cream, I started feeling sick....really sick. Nausea, extreme fatigue, and I skipped my period. My cycle was 54 days long before I had a period. I tried to stick it out and keep using the cream...thinking that any day I may get through this rough patch, but it wasn't happening and I couldn't take the sick feeling anymore. So, I decided to stop taking the cream...even though it had helped me so much with the PMS symptoms that I was so desperate to get rid of.
When my period finally came, it was heavy....in fact, it is still here. I've now had a period for over a month. I don't know what to do. Do I start the cream again? Is it going to make me sick again? I need to stop the period.
Could someone please help me know what to do next? I'm miserable.
