Natural supplements

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello all.  I know there are some really knowledgeable ladies out there and I wonder if you can help me.  I seem to be progesterone intolerant and since I still have a uterus, can't take oestrogen only which is the only thing which makes me feel human! I've tried the coil which was disastrous for me. I am now back to square one. Without Oestrogen I feel very sic, have terrible headches, vaginal pain and anal pain (I can best describe it as nerve pain). What could I take in terms of vitamins and supplements to help with this? I really don't want a hysterectomy but am really struggling with these peri-menopausal symptoms.  Thanks you so much for any advice!

    You say the coil was disasterous? In what way?

      I could feel it from the moment it was put in. Very uncomfortable. Within a week I had developed a urine infection. I just wanted the thing out!

      Oh ok, just wondered, I have mirena coil, I could feel it too when it was first put in, bad cramps for first week off and on, and had spotting for the first 6 weeks, but now it's settled down, not aware of it, and no spotting, plus means I can use just oestrogel, and the uterus is protected with the coil.

      Must say I did panic with it at first and wanted it out, but glad I persevered, as it's all fine now.

      It's not easy finding a regime that works, but I think you have to give things time, so your body can get used to it. Like you, I was all for getting it removed, couldn't cope with having a coil in my body, felt overwhelmed and panicky. But now, 3 months down the line, no cramps or bleeding, and just rub my oestrogel on every morning, and mostly feeling ok, just occasional anxiety issues still, but nothing is a cure all x
