Progesterone Side Effects
I am 40 years old and I am trying to conceive. I have high androgens, mainly of androstenedione, besides acne, mood swings, skin oil.... I have a 28 days cycle, but I decided to use progesterone cream to reduce androgens levels, and I started in day 7 but in the day 9 started a diarrhea and feel many gases all day long.
The dosage I'm using is 1 pump a day. Today I am in 27 day cycle, and as I am used to check my basal body temperature, this morning it is still high and I do not know if I should stop using progesterone or continue until menses arrives.
I considerate myself as a healthy person, I dot not eat gluten, lactose and sugar, and I supplement my diet and nutrition with probiotics, inositol, d-chiroinositol, NAC, VitD, chromium picolinate, CQ10, hidrolized collagen and VitC and I run and do yoga 5x a week. Besides the side effects, the good news are: I have no PMS symptoms, acne has improved and my mood is great. I should say that I feel better since I started to use progesterone cream, but the dhiarrea does not seems to be a good signal.
