So far so good

I'm on day 6 of the testosterone and estrogen protocol.  I'm happy to report that it's really not that bad!  All in all, the side effects have been very manageable.  I've got some mild acne and I've been getting headaches for about an hour or so after I take the meds.   But that's it. It hasn't been any worse than taking the DHEA.  Phew.

I think it will be interesting to see what my blood work shows after 2 weeks of this regimen.  I hope it's doing what it's supposed to.   And I hope that next month this pays off.  The research says that on average patients who tried a similar protocol got 1 to 1.5 more eggs than the control groups.

The harder part has been to keep up my exercise, supplements and healthy eating. The heathy eating has been a bit of a bust lately, there have been a few too many meals out.   I don't love taking all of supplements with each and every meal.  I am especially starting to detest the fish oil supplement.  (The others I am taking are CoQ10, prenatal and vitamin D).  The supplements are from the naturopath and are to be taken 3x per day.  I don't know when I'm going to get used to these.  I've been taking them for what feels like an eternity.  I should be used to them by now.


  1. I'm with you. It is so hard to keep up on everything you should be taking and doing.

  2. I agree with you & Jessah. It's easy to miss a dose, and then you feel like it won't work when that happens. Keep it up!

  3. Healthy eating is the first thing to go for me when I'm stressed out. It takes a lot of willpower!


I'm interested in what you have to say
