It seems contradictory that you say there are no side effects to progesterone, yet there are.
How can it not be a major and possibly dangerous side effect that progesterone stimulates oestrogen for weeks even months after beginning progesterone??
One major side effect I'm having at taking 140mg. of progesterone is rapid heart beat and blood pressure going thru the roof. I know you will say this is oestrogen dominance, but it is a direct result of me stimulating it with progesterone!
Then I know you will say to up the dose----until the blood pressure gets how high?? Is this not dangerous advice?
I truly don't know what to do now: risk a stroke going up on the dose, or going down and living with high blood pressure even longer, or quiting the progesterone altogether?
What a mess I feel I've gotten myself into!!
