Where are my lovely results??
I have some questions re utilizing progesterone cream. We have a history in my family of use (sister with post-partum psychosis, grandmother who used it with good results, mother who researched it extensively for my sister's situation). I recently decided that after a few years and many dollars, many diet changes and many supplements taken that I had to do something else. I am 42, mother of four, exhausted, zitty with the addition of lovely cystic acne, have light hair on my face, whiskers coming out of my chin, not overweight but have a muffin top - which I've never had before - and some PMS. I don't believe I've been losing hair. My periods used to be quite irregular and I had bad cramping up until the birth of my first child (12 years ago). The PMS continued (irritation, bloating, breast tenderness, some cramping, extreme fatigue), but my periods became quite regular. However, while all of the adrenal supplements, hormone balancing supplements, EFA supplements suggested by my naturopath and my diet changes (no processed foods, all organic, no grains and no sugar)have helped, it has not been to the extent that I have hoped.
So, I started with Progestelle, I believe. Two days in on the 20 mg dose suggested, I felt great. Even better, I had a real interest in my husband and enjoyed what we were doing - it was, frankly, quite amazing and reminded me of how I felt when I was in my thirties - I was on fire! You can probably imagine my excitement :). So, then my period started and I went off the cream. My wonderful results disappeared. In the meantime, I ordered your product and started that up on day 12. At this point (just about time for my period again), I am confused. There has been no resurgence of desire, I am tired, tired, tired (as usual) and I can't say that I feel any real effects at all. In fact, I just plucked three hairs out of my chin...am I doing something wrong? Am I being impatient? Why did I have those great few days at the beginning and how do I get those effects back? Any advice would be appreciated. I simply cannot afford to drop the money on hormone levels testing at this time.
