Low progesterone symptoms

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi ladies

We'll I've been thinking a lot today. Has anyone had low progesterone levels when taking Hrt combined?

I take 100mg a day of progesterone by tablet for 14 days of the month. I use Evorel 50 patches which I change twice a week.

I'm wandering if I'm not having enough progesterone?

My symptoms which I still have are:

Severe headaches

Fatigued (want to lye in bed)

Shattered after even doing hoovering)

Lightheaded after getting up and blood pressure is ok.

Frightened feelings

November enthusiasm in anything

I would appreciate any answers x

    Im on low dose Progesterone. These i take every day no break 1 daily ,Im on Indivina 1 mg/2.5 mg . Go back to your Dr . Probs I've had anxiety came way prior to HRT . Lightheaded can be anything outside of HRT ,numourous things can cause that ,same for headaches . If your BP is okay  maybe simply stress .

    Hi Michelle, loo loo here again! It could be low progesterone you know...my gp categorically said i have to take 200mg days 15-26 of cycle if I am also having estrogen & still have my uterus. she said the 100mg dose is for continuous hrt taken every day (both estrogen & progesterone every day) ONLY for ladies who DON'T have there uterus any more. so definately worth checking out. do you have a menopause specialist doc at your surgery? I am lucky - my permanent gp is a menopause specialist so is well "gen'd up" on this subject. xx

      Thankyou for your advice. It means a lot to me. Yes I am still having a light period but my doctor put me on 100mg the same amount of days as you. I feel so weak and low at the moment. It's hard to stay focused xx

    Hi Michelle

    Can I ask how you know that you are low in progesterone? I only ask as I suffer with the extreme fatigue - anxiousness which leads to panic attacks.

    My monthlys have been erratic and heavy with clots.

    My doctor said that my bloods came back just satisfactory and will take them again in a month but refused to do a hormone test.

    I know my body and it's just not functioning and I'm a shadow of my former self.

    Where did you go or what test did you have?

    Hope you don't mind me asking.

    Hope you get some answers
