STARTING DOSE CONFUSION
I'm 61 years. I was on Protesterone for many years as I mentioned in a previous article. I have read all the information but am still messing around with a starting dose.
Just briefly, I should never have stopped the progesterone cream and was always on a dose of around 200 to 300 mg and it worked well for me until the last couple of years???. For whatever reason I decided to just stop it!! It's been 18 months and of course I have gained so much water weight and other symptoms. I tried to restart it again a few months ago but as I learnt here I was probably not using enough at only 80mg. Or alternatively I only gave it a couple of days. I gained weight immediately and felt bad so stopped it, where as I should have persevered.
I am on week 2 now and am using doses around 200 to 300mg. I am not starting to lose any weight yet, but have gained an extra 2 kilos??? I'm feeling ok though. I'm thinking I should have began with 150mg or less and just persevered for a bit longer. The few days that I used 300 mg I felt absolutely shocking so have cut back to about 250, I'm still bloated and weight gain. I am Absolutely totally confused now.
