She gave me prescriptions for two forms. One is the less effective Prometrium
, which is very much like natural progesterone and
has little in the way of side effects. I experience some slight weight gain, but I also feel better while taking the medication (it is recommended to be taken at night as it can cause drowsiness - which it does, and I sleep like a baby!) There is the added benefit that my menstrual cycles are much more regular while taking this drug.
