Progesterone, perimenopause, and pregnancy
Hi Wray, I have been told that I am in perimenopause and my progesterone is low. I was put on progesterone taken under the tongue once a day for the last 14 days of my cycle. I was not getting any results, so was sent to a specialist who let me know that I have about 2.5% change (because of my age) of having a baby even with help. I am 43.
I was wondering if I should even continue with the progesterone because I was feeling awful and defintely not myself, yet I had been that way before starting it too. I found your site and looked at my dose and decided that maybe the dose was too low at 80, so I doubled it. Within 2 days I was feeling great and normal again (it had been years since I had felt normal). I ordered the cream and started using 1/4 tsp 4 times a day and have continued to feel much better. My cycle came and I stopped using the cream, yet within a week I gained 5 pounds and felt horrible again, so I started back up again.
I know that if I do not use it for the about 2 weeks there might be a remote chance of conceiving, but I feel awful. My question is should I just use the cream all the time and give up on having a baby or try something else? Thanks!
