My point is, if you have severely low progesterone go to a doctor if you can and if you can’t eat healthy as possible and get some progesterone natural cream. You can and more then likely will have a stroke if you let it go too long. I just thought I wasn’t woman enough to handle the changes when I was menstruating and never told anyone, don’t ever just think it’s normal and not ask. I am trying to fix it myself (I have no insurance) but who knows if it will work or not. My period starts tomorrow so we will see.
My doctor put me on a natural progesterone cream and it made me feel horrible. I was only taking it once a day/ 1 pump which seemed like a lot.
I was breaking out all over my body and very oily. My hair became extremely limp and thin and I felt depressed... not myself emotionally. Is there a secret to taking this? Or is there any other product that might work better for me?
My saliva tests showed that my progesterone levels are very low, so I am already having a ton of other yucky symptoms. The cream just seemed to send me over the edge. Is this normal? Also, I have never been on HRT and I am 36 years old.
Thanks for any info.
It is suggested that bioavailable testosterone represents the fraction of circulating testosterone that readily enters cells and better reflects the bioactivity of testosterone than does the simple measurement of serum total testosterone. Also, varying levels of SHBG can result in inaccurate measurements of bioavailable testosterone. Decreased SHBG levels can be seen in obesity, hypothyroidism , androgen use, and nephritic syndrome (a form of kidney disease ). Increased levels are seen in cirrhosis , hyperthyroidism , and estrogen use. In these situations, measurement of free testosterone may be more useful.
