I also have more zits ono my face then a teenage boy, never have zits before what is going on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cry:

Dear Cherry,

Your estrogen levels may have dropped abruptly after your surgery, leaving you with a relatively greater effect from your testosterone. Low estrogen and high testosterone influence would account for your symptoms.

It's been a month since your surgery. If things don't settle down soon, talk to your doctor. Perhaps you two can work out a way to rebalance your hormones.

Thanx for replying, we are doing a few more tests this week and hopefully will find a middle ground~ i was sure that all my symptoms pointed to low progesterone not low estrogen, how can you tell the difference?

I know the late Dr. John Lee felt that multiple symptoms could be attributed to low progesterone. From my experience, I think the main symptom of low progesterone are heavy, clotty periods, at least when low progesterone accompanies high estrogen. The lack of progesterone in the context of too much estrogen probably contributes to anxiety and sleep disturbances as well.
