a little discouraged

Hello = )
I have been on the V-dot .75 for a while now - almost 2 months. I feel pretty good (at least I am not crying or freaking out over every little thing) BUT.......
I am still having trouble sleeping (a lot of insomnia and just plain tired all the time)- I have acne on my face (just around my jaw line and for the first time in my life) very low energy and although I do have SOME sex drive - it is really not enough to write home about.
I called my gyno about having my hormones checked to see where I stand...am I low in estrogen? progesterone? etc....however, she said that she wouldnt do it cause hormones fluctuate every day and the test is not acurate. She feels that I just need more time adjusting.
Does anyone have any opinions or suggestions?
Also, I healed up very nicely - can have intercourse with no problems (a little dry) but heres my problem - I can be doing nothing and have the strangest "pressure" feeling in my vagina at times. Does anyone know what this is from?
Any info would be appreciated.

Hi Jileebean

Have you looked at the list for too much/too little estrogen/progesterone? I don't know that having your levels checked is the answer or not but if your doctor is willing to adjust based on symptoms that's not a bad way to go. How much longer does she want you to stick it out before she'll consider a change?

I don't know about the pressure you are feeling. It's never a bad idea to check with your doctor about something that doesn't feel right or is unusual.
