Trying to Conceive My First Child
I have a question, but first I'll give you my basics. I'm almost 36 years old. My husband and I have been trying to conceive our first child since May of last year. I chart every month, so I know when I ovulate. I am taking a ton of vitamins and herbs. I have decided to try taking progesterone.
I went to the doctors last month and they told me that they would not check my hormone/progesterone levels unless I had recurrent miscarriages. That just totally ticked me off. Anyway I just received my Natpro cream today. I have been looking at your site for hours and am still not sure how to take it. I understand the amount, what I am confused about is, do I continue taking it until my period shows, or do I take it for 14 days and then stop? Like I said I am trying to get pregnant. I decided to try the progesterone because my luteul phase keeps changing. I did your questionnaire and I scored a 44. It said anything over 10 and it was a strong probability that I had a progesterone deficiency. The other thing I am wondering, now that I am reading, am I going to experience oestrogen dominance? Really don't want to experience anxiety/panic attacks. I have enough problems I don't really need anymore.
Thanks for you help. I'm just at my whits end. I have decided that if I am not pregnant by the beginning of next year that I am just going to get my tubes tied and quit letting trying to conceive drive me insane.
