So the deal-io with progesterone is I take it for 20 days and then have 8 days off to induce a cycle.
As I've mentioned previously, not being on progesterone is horrible. It's the horror of going to a Halloween haunted house and finding out the serial killers are real as opposed to paid actors.
I am not exaggerating.
Tonight I'm due to stop taking progesterone until next Friday.
You can imagine my lack of enthusiasm, yes?
As far as I know, there's no information out there that talks about how to manage this (dose change, low dose during my cycle etc...) or if it will go away. I can only hope that, with time, my body will build up enough reserves to make it for eight days without completely losing its shit.
Until then, I am resigned to being completely useless for the next week.
