Compounded Progesterone Side Effects

Has anyone else had bad side effects with compounded progesterone? I am bloated and feel shaky. I take an oral pill every night, it is proges and DHEA.

Re: Compounded Progesterone Side Effects

How long have you been taking it? What dose are you on?

Re: Compounded Progesterone Side Effects

Hi, I take 150mg of the P, and 10mg of the DHEA, compounded. I actually feel much better. I have been on it for four weeks now, taken every night. I thought I was going to have to go to the ER earlier in the week. Now my endocronologist tells me that after a hysterectomy there is no need for progesterone, that taken with estrogen increases the risk for breast cancer. There seem to be so many conflicting opinions on taking progesterone after a hyst.

Progesterone does not increase breast cancer risk, it is "progestin" taken with estrogen that increases the risk.

That said; not everyone needs progesterone after a hysterectomy. Some find they do, some don't.

Why are you also using DHEA?

The DHEA is supposed to help with my thyroid imbalance and overall immune system health. What is the difference between Progesterone and Progestin?

Progestin is a synthetic hormone. It is not comparable to Progesterone.

You can also try cutting your dose down if you feel it's too high.

Everything Kim says is right on the money.
