Too much progesterone…how long until symptoms subside?

by H
(Alabama)

I started taking Progesterone oil (Progest E) 3 weeks ago. I felt amazing with skin application and then about a week in decided to try internal. I felt even better!

I think I’ve experimented enough to know that more isn’t always better. Today I have had a mild headache, body soreness, diarrhea and chills.

How can I best support my body to level back out? How long will it take to feel better?

Thanks.

Hi H

Progesterone oil is not the best Delivery Method, please consider using a good quality progesterone cream such as Natpro which is a 3% cream. You don't state how much you are using so it is difficult to comment.

What you are experiencing is Estrogen Dominance symptoms. Between 100-200mg progesterone cream is needed per day, more if symptoms are severe. It can take anything from 2-6 months for one to feel it's benefits provided progesterone is being used correctly. Please read How to use Progesterone Cream for more info on how to use progesterone correctly.

Vitamin D3 is very important as explained many times on this website. What is your level?
