Low Progesterone Levels
by Francisca Franklyn
I am 27 and have low progesterone levels.
The problem started when I was 24. I noticed that my period would not come for like 8-11 months. Suddenly, it came for a stretch of 8 months and I bled every day but my doctor suggested that we wait because he did not want us looking for my period again, so I did.
It was so difficult because it was really heavy.
So I became worried and complained to a doctor who suggested I do a hormone profile and discovered that the progesterone level is quite low.
She gave me shots of progesterone, clomid tablets and parlodel tablets. These would simulate the symptoms of pregnancy and caused me so much discomfort.
After three months I lost faith in the treatment, so I discontinued. My period seized again.
After a year it came and it's been on now for 7 months. I am tired and confused.
I have been married for 2 years now. We really want kids. What is the solution?
I'm so sorry to hear of the distress you are having with with your menstrual cycle and the low progesterone levels.
I assume the doctors have checked to make sure that there is not some other issue causing this continual bleeding apart from the hormone imbalance?
I would suggest you try using some natural progesterone cream to try to get your body functioning properly again.
I use natural cream
myself, so I know it is a good option. It is available from the AIM South Africa office, so you should be able to order some. Let me know if you would like to try it and I'll get you a quote and provide you with further details.
I understand your pain and desire for children. You will definitely need to get your cycle straightened out so that you are ovulating properly to give you the best chance for fertility.
I'm sorry I can't offer further solutions for you, but I don't really know what else to suggest.
