Just ordered testosterone ! Hope it helps with fatigue

Posted , 7 users are following.

Any feedback on what to expect greatly appreciated !  I read testosterone turns into estrogen gives you energy and lifts your mood ...it’s only 1 mg as I don’t want to grow a beard . Trying anything at this stage .... so desperate !

      I’ve done loads of reading online ... and if the progesterone and estrogen don’t agree with you many women have had luck on testosterone . I was ok on the patch and it leveled me out but mentally I felt drugged not myself so I now have to deal with the awful fatigue but feel like my mind is somewhat back.  So testosterone is good for energy

      Hi Lori, it's worth a go. Just make sure you stock up on razors! And you can if your voice gets deeper-stop! No, seriously, I really hope it helps. I will be following you. Good luck honey! Donna xxx

    Good luck Lori, even if you grow a beard...if it makes you feel better!  Is it cream or tablet?  Keep us updated 🤞

      Thx Lou! When you’re desperate you’ll try anything ... I have a good razor ha! It’s the lowest dose you can get and read that other women have had good relief with it

      Your hormones are doing the tango too!  The last gyno checked my testosterone levels...they were 1...then told me there’s nothing she can do.  I’m like, Why the H-E-double hockey sticks did you test me then!  Aaaahhh!  I ordered progesterone cream last week, then cancelled it, I’m such a chicken!

      Yes if we just had a DATE when things would level out at least we’d know there would be light at the end of the tunnel . Right now it’s a dark long tunnel. I know we’re all different but one lady said 10 years! I can’t take 10 years of this ! 

      I do know when I crashed at 41 and became very ill with Peri it took quite a while to level out but I did eventually . Here’s hoping 🙏🏻

    Lori - Your line about the beard gave me a giggle - and I guess I REALLY needed that, LOL!

    Oh my - I'm running naked through rose bushes on another string and willing to grow a beard with you on this one, Lori! 

    I got my Saliva Results today and here is what it said: 

    Progesterone Normal Range 75-270 - drumroll - mine is 17.

    The Ratio of Progesterone to Estradiol should be 100 - 500 - mine is 8.

    = Fragile Perimenopausal Mess. My new acronym FPM! 

    And yet many of you have been honest about the side affects from introducing the natural progesterone creams, too. I don't know what I'm going to do yet.

      Well thanks for making me get off my butt and look at mine 

      Progesterone 0.5 postmenopausal 

      Estradiol 15 which is Postmenopausal 

      Testosterone 20 

      Agh!!!! 

      Whatever the results I feel like crap 😖 hope this is over soon !!

      And yes I said on another post that I’d drink bleach right now to ‘feel better’ ! 

      Yes running bearded naked through the bushes whilst drinking a carton of bleach ... sounds like it could be a good movie ! 🤣
