Things have slowly been improving in terms of emotions and hormones. I appear to be having another normal cycle (are you sick of hearing about my cycles yet?) and I'm feeling good. I found a nurse practitioner who specializes in menopause in Denver (Cece Huffnagle) who is fantastic and has been incredibly helpful. We talked through making sure I'm comfortable (e.g., stopping hot flashes, helping with dryness, regulating the emotional swings) without preventing the possibility of pregnancy. She prescribed a cream for me to use that is super low dose and has helped and also is having me take progesterone every day from ovulation until cycle. If, miraculously, I fertilized an egg, I likely wouldn't be producing enough progesterone to support the pregnancy so this would help. There isn't any harm in taking it, so I'm doing it. And I'm still continuing with all of the herbs and supplements.
