I'm currently on thyroid medication and progesterone cream in hopes of getting my period back after getting off the pill in 0ct 2013. Nothing yet. I have not had a period since then. The only time I bled a bit was after electrical stimulation at acupuncture, but can no longer afford that. I have gained about 10 lbs in the year since, and my breast have gone up a cup size. My midsection is quite larger. My hair is darker and thicker, including on my face. I was diagnosed with PCOS at 15 years old and was on the pill til last year at the age of 32. I got off in Oct. 2013. It's now more than a year without a period. I'm 33. I've been on the progesterone and thyroid medication since April.
I had a doctor's apmt yesterday and really left frustrated. She's sending me for yet another ultrasound (pelvic) to check if my uterine lining is building since I've had no period. In the meantime, I have larger and tender breasts. None of my bras fit! I already had big boobs! My winter coat is waaay too tight, and it fit in March. I saw on one website (Women for Balance.com) that 400mg of progesterone is ideal to avoid estrogen dominance. I'm currently only taking 200mg to bring on a period. Should I be taking 400mg?
Please help. My self esteem is shot. I appreciate any feedback!
