progesterone balanced my estrogen dominance
I have been suffering from severe anxiety, and internal trembling while taking vivelle dot(estradiol patch) for 4 years. My doctor also told me to take progesterone cream 20 mg twice a day which I really slacked on. It was hit and miss, mostly miss. I didn't realize how important the progesterone was to counter the estradiol and for 4 years I've been estrogen dominant and didn't realize it. I started faithfully using progesterone cream twice daily and stopped the estradiol. I feel better that I have felt in 4 years. Hot flashes are not a result of being low on estrogen, it can be from estrogen dominance. Progesterone balance this, but it can take a few weeks. Actually at first, it can make estrogen dominance worse, but be patient it will balance that dominance.
