Struggling with hormone imbalance
I am 28 years old and I've been struggling with what I suspect is a hormone imbalance for about three years now. It started out with basically month long PMS symptoms with only a small window of relief during my period and right after. My symptoms have been irritability, aggression, mood swings, low libido, dry eyes, anxiety attacks and most recently I have had dizziness, insomnia and fatigue. I started to take a popular progesterone cream that had a lower concentration of progesterone than the Natpro cream. It helped for a while at least with the anxiety, but didn't seem to do much for my other symptoms. I read the information here that talks about increasing the dose to overcome the initial estrogen surge, so I tried to increase my dose, but I believe that there just wasn't enough of a concentration in the cream to really bring my progesterone levels up enough. This left me in what I think was a perpetual state of estrogen dominance for a month or two where I was just crazy. I got scared and thought maybe it was too much progesterone, so I backed off the cream and started to feel better. But six months later my symptoms are back. I went to a doctor to try to get some hormone profiles done, but I am not very confident that she knew what she was doing because from everything I have read it is the wrong time of my cycle to get checked. I have ordered some Natpro and I am excited to try it, but I am also afraid I may have to go through being super crazy again before things get better.
Someone also suggested a serum from Young Living called Progessence Plus. I wanted to ask if anyone on here has heard of it or has experience with it? I did some calculations from what information I could find and the concentration in one drop is only .50 milligrams and they suggest 2 to 8 drops a day. How is this anywhere near being enough progesterone to make even the slightest difference?
