Progesterone treatment?

Anyone still feeling better when using progesterone ?

I still use progesterone. I stopped from time to time. But now i am back on and the gives me some more energy. I stopped one time because i thought that it would aggravate my candida.

Hey man. Congrats on your recovery. Its looking like you very well may be correct. A lot of stuff going on at hackstasis.com regarding this. You may have nailed it bro!

Read a lot of your stuff- I was bedridden pretty much my first 7 months of pfs until a major infection was found. Been on the upswing for about 4.5 months back to work and stuff. But a story like yours really motivated me as we seemed to have a very similar crash (3 weeks after.)

Again congrats and hope life is great for you!

i tried the progesterone cream a few year back,its made about 30 perecent of my eyebrows fall out,hair from my lower shins fell off,and quite a bit hair from the top of my head and temples came out and never re grew,prior to this I had thick slicked back hair,my hairloss which was barely noticeable anyway stopped in its tracks the day I crashed a decade ago,keep off the progesterone crap,its bullshite,if you want to try hormone replacement go see a urologist or endo,self medicating with hormones is madness and could end up a lot worse than you already are listening to people on here…

Is progesterone supplementation wise when one’s estrogen levels are already baseline?


#1027

No, it is not the prog causing it, its elevated estradiol, I have searched online. Best

I would like to revive this thread. Can people give some updates as to their progesterone experiences?

I used 2.5mg of progesterone cream daily for about a week. Felt improvements pretty quickly, but then I got quite a lot worse, especially sexually. I also got “real” depression (negative thoughts as opposed the usual absence of feeling). So I stopped.

Many people here have said it’s a zig zag ride with progesterone, but my setback was so much bigger than my improvements that I couldn’t justify continuing.

It’s possible that I need to combine it with some other supplements or hormones, but I don’t know what that would be. Testosterone? Pregnenolone?

Makes me wonder if we have something similar to autoimmune progesterone dermatitis.
