I'm so confused. I've been reading a book called "The Natural Hormone Makeover" by Phuli Cohan and I'm learning a lot but I'm still confused.
Is Prometrium natural? Is it bio-identical? Or is it synthetic? In my google searches I find conflicting information about this.
When my periods were lasting 3 weeks, my Dr. put me on the pill to regulate me. It regulated my periods, but gave me migraines. After 6 months, I begged him for an alternative. He then prescribed me Prometrium, 200mg. nightly 15 days after my period starts, for 2 weeks. I still got migraines but a little less severe.
I have all the perimenopause issues--insomnia, exhaustion, moody, depressed, weight gain, bloated. I feel terrible.
I just ordered Natpro. Is it "more natural" than the Prometrium my Dr. prescribed?
Thank you to anyone that might be able to help me.
