progesterone helping si ligaments and hips after baby
(ontario, ca usa)
Hi wray! my name is melinda I had a baby girl 5 months ago and it has been a challenge. The last trimester was horrible my left hip caved in I had sciatica . and I think restless legs not sure if it was that or a pinched nerve. Before I got pregnant I was on progesterone due to being diagnosed peripausaul I am 38. I was told I was very deficient. I had to stay on progesterone for 3 months so not to miscarry.
I was also told I could not have children.
Well I had an MRI i have a 2mm herniation in the lumbar spine, but that could have been there before I fell on my butt about a year before baby. 2mm is very small thank God!!
But my hips hurt and my si joints hurt no doctor has been able to help Emmy legs twitch at night but a slow twitch like a nerve like an electric wave down my leg.
Well I also had severe post pardum depression. Since I have been using the cream I have improved i put it on my back my hips and si joints. When I do that the pain is gone and my legs don't twitch as bad. I know I have a long way to go to heal and in using about 350 mg a day or more depending on symptoms its very costly in going through cream like every other day.
My question is why is the progesterone helping when nothing else would? I know its an antiinflammatory and can help with bone growth any other reasons?
I have been using the cream for about 3 weeks I had to up the dose many times how long does it take for the body to heal after baby?
