Low Progesterone Websites

After sharing my recent discovery of having chronic low progesterone, I have been shocked at how many of my female friends and acquaintances have come out of the wood-work lately regaling their own stories of how low progesterone has caused all sorts of issues for them, not least of which is infertility and miscarriages.  It makes me so sad.  When I consider how long it took for myself and my sister W to get our answers about how low progesterone has affected our lives, I guess it shouldn't shock me that the medical community still seems to ignore this ever-common issue over and over again; but I can't help it, it does.

I'm by no means an expert, but I thought that I would list some websites that might point you in the right direction if you're wondering if you, yourself have a low-progesterone/estrogen dominance problem.  These are sites that pushed me and my sister, W, in the right direction.  I do not recommend self-diagnosing, but I do encourage you to do your research and then definitely seek out a doctor that will take the time to take your blood on the correct day (usually anywhere between days 19-22 of your monthly cycle, charting is a good thing to do so you know where you are exactly in your cycle, even if you have a history of previously having very normal cycles) and test it for your hormone, adrenal gland, pituitary gland, and thyroid functions (all of which can have a hand in low progesterone and other hormone issues).

I hope that if you stumbled across this blog while searching for information on hormone issues, that you will soon find an answer that restores your body to wholeness.  God created each of us to be healthy and whole in these bodies that we live in; so, don't give up, there is an answer for you out there!

"Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers." 3 John 1:2 (American King James Version)
