I currently have low progesterone...
I currently have low progesterone, low iodine, low vit d. My periods have been very hit and miss for the past few months since I was put on progesterone cream. It started skewing my periods and making me break out badly so I quit using it about 6 months
ago. My periods are still off. I stray from medication and try to resort to the herbal/vitamin route as much as possible. I take Rainbow light women's one daily, borage oil, fish oil and vitamin D. I was wondering if I could add something like Now Foods Female
Balance or Natural Factors Estro Sense to balance out my hormones, mood, and periods. My life is pretty great right now but I am always annoyed and bitchy which I can tell is part of my hormonal imbalance. What can I do while taking the natural route?

5'4" 130lbs no weight change, cystic acne before my period starts which is how I know it's coming. No excessive hair or medications. Was on birth control from 15-26 but have been off for 3 years. No nipple discharge of any sort.
Have you had ultrasound of the ovaries? Have you had prolactin and TSH in blood checked? Do you want to be pregnant?

I haven't had an ultrasound done. Last time I had my hormones checked my tsh was 1.02. My boyfriend had a vasectomy years ago but I would like him to get reversed one day and try to conceive.
High prolactin in the blood causes loss of ovulation. You should have it checked. Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) also causes it. You should have your ovaries checked with ultrasound to see if there are multiple small cysts in the ovaries or not. You should see an Obgyn doctor to have them. The treatment depends on the cause. If prolactin is high, you should have medication inhibiting prolactin. If you have PCOS, you should have birth control pills until you decide to get pregnant. When you decide to get pregnant, you should take clomid.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
