Smile - estrogen dominance wake-up crisis: is this real? estrogen dominance wake-up crisis: is this real?

can someone tell me if this is real and if every woman goes thru this?
my P is practically non existent, well not quite but very low, E is out of balance being higher. Dr. talked about me possibly getting on prescription strength progesterone, (compounded).
That is a theory of his but will let me know when bloodwork comes back next week.

I've been having horrendous allergy attacks, itchy feeling lungs. Prescription P may help from what I read under the P section of the asrticle "too much too little"
I have been taking an otc prog. cream. I can never get my P over 2.
Does this mean if I end up taking prescription P that I will go through
an estrogen dominance wake up crisis that I have read about?


Isn't there a more gentler way? like just dropping E supplementation slowly and keep using the otc P I am using?


I don't want to go through that or massive fluctuations..........

Re: estrogen dominance wake-up crisis: is this real?

I have read that most of the OTC progesterone creams don't have enough hormone to do anything - your case seems to prove that to be true. Not sure why you want to continue using a product that is not helping. That's wasting your time and money.

One OTC product that I have read good reviews of is Progesta-Key from Ann Louise Gittleman. I haven't used it but I have been on that website because I use some of her other products. If you are set on using OTC, maybe look into that one?

Estrogen dominance is definitely not where you want to be. Whatever progesterone you choose, I hope you get your levels up. Good luck!

well he said I need to be taking about 40 mgs a day. I asked him about switching to compounded p and he said maybe we will check p levels and e2 in 5-6 weeks. i think my p literally got sucked out of me over a period of a year. it was a 2 before my two minor car accidents 6 mos apart, then 3 months of rigorous pt and my husband starting constant fighting about financial concerns, kept that up daily for about 3-4 months, very draining. he has stopped that now but look at the price I paid. prolonged and unrelenting stress plus bad allergies suck the P right out of you. i will continue to use mine. check it out also at alternative medicine network on the net read the ingredients, he looked at it. and if that doesnt bring it up, its compounded p then. ( i hate how I felt on prometrium, not even going there)

Re: estrogen dominance wake-up crisis: is this real?

I would definitely check into a compounded progesterone cream, I've been on one for about 8 years & have continued using it since my TVH on Oct.20. It's not perfect, but it definitely helped more than anything else I tried. Remember, it takes at least 6 weeks before your levels will come up with a compounded cream.

Good luck!
