How will I know if I need progesterone?

When should one start taking pregesterone and how do you know if you need it? How long does it take your body to level itself out with the estrogen? Should you wait until your body has leveled its estrogen before you start taking progestrone? What is the best form of progesterone? How much do you take? Anyone?

How will I know if I need progesterone?


I think it is best to try and get the estrogen right before adding in other hormones. I wouldn't just add progesterone because someone else is using it. You are still very early post op. It can take some time for the body to adjust and recover from surgery. Many symptoms of imbalance can come from fluctuating hormone levels, which is not uncommon in the first few months after surgery.

I do use progesterone, a 5% compounded progesterone cream, I currently use just a dab every day. In the beginning I did use more, but found that as I moved farther away from my surgery date that my body did not need as much progesterone.

You can read more about progesterone and hormones in the articles at www.hormonejungle.com
