Bioidentical Fears

Wanna know my biggest fears in starting my bioidentical journey?   All my tests coming back normal.  Crazy talk, right?  Who wants “abnormal” test results?  Who wants to find out their hormone levels are out of whack?  I do!  It would explain why my period decided to make an early appearance this month.  It would explain why I cry all the time.  It would explain why I have gained 10 pounds this past year.  (Surely that wasn’t the food lust!)  It would explain why I walk around with a dark cloud 3 weeks out of the month.  It would explain why I want to hurl my soda can at the guy who keeps walking by my office with the squeaky shoes.

Intuitively, I know it must be a hormonal imbalance.  These symptoms are new.  The only time I have come close to feeling this way is when I was pregnant.  What is pregnancy but a giant ball of hormonal imbalance!?  I am certainly not pregnant, so what could be causing this change in my personality?  It’s not stress, it’s not my job, and it’s not my family.  All of those things are very stable.  It has to be the hormones!  Right?

I will take a deep breath, get my blood drawn, wait until my proper spitting day, and hope for the best.

    I will be doing the saliva test on the 2nd of July. I have been waiting patiently until day 19! 🙂

    I had to do the spit test twice…apparently I spit too often the first time, so be sure and follow directions 🙂 Oh, and can you please post a video of your spitting experience??? hehehehe

    Apparantly I need to read the directions! How did you spit too often? I don’t think I will post a spitting video! Haha! I may not spit today as we are going to DC. I may spit tomorrow. We will have company in town, so I will share the spit with everyone! 🙂

    I have “officially” gone through menopause, as some doctors say, as I have gone 1 year without my period! BUT I am experiencing dry skin, hot flashes, etc. I have been to a bioidentical HRT seminar and I am considering the option. I have 1 important question: does it bring your period back???

     
     
     
  • Hi Lynn,

    The symptoms you are describing are common symptoms of hormonal imbalance. With regard to whether or not you get your period back, the answer is that you might get some spotting, but no, it would not bring your period back…

    Hope that helps!
