I have suffered with fibroids, heavy bleeding, clotting, spotting,insomnia, etc. for years. After much research have been using DIM, Vitex, Calcium D-Glucarate,Vitalzym, Milk Thistle, and Progesterone (100mg/day) to try to metabolize excess estrogen, balance hormones, dissolve fibroids, and regulate cycles. So far I have had two twenty-eight day cycles and they have been fairly "normal" compared to past cycles.So, I might be on the right track in terms of getting my cycle regulated again. However, I used to have strong symptoms when I ovulated and no longer have them so I don't know if I am ovulating or not. I read if I'm peri-menopausal (which I "guess" I am; I'm 52) I should start on day 7 with progesterone, but that would prevent ovulation, right? I also feel bad when I start my progesterone (like I'm going to have another period), and after a few days I feel better. Shouldn't I feel better when I apply progesterone? And, should I take my temperature to find out if I'm ovulating? Also, should I start on day 14 instead of day 7? I started having anxiety in March and it is awful. I am taking a natural herbal supplement (Seredyn) along with 5-HTP and alternating Valerian and Kava to deal with it, but sometimes only a Xanax will help. The anxiety is making me depressed and I can't eat or sleep or enjoy life. I went to your website to see if too much progesterone was making me anxious and it tells me no so what now....? Naturopathic Doc is treating me for thyroid - says that is the source of all my problems, hormonal inbalance included. Helped for two weeks and now anxiety is back. There is no doctor around here that will treat this naturally and the ones I've found that will cost a fortune so I'm on my own. Please help!
