Finding a Doctor

Mental Health Comments Off

When contacting a doctor who specializes in hormone balance, be prepared for the possibility that he or she may not have experience treating someone with bipolar disorder or schizophrenia.
Most doctors who specialize in hormone balance are aware that progesterone influences mood and that low progesterone levels have been linked to mood swings — but many are not aware of the extent.
When speaking with your doctor, be sure to disclose your mental health diagnosis, but do not expect to be treated based on this.
Instead, tell your doctor if you are suffering from any of the low progesterone symptoms found here. Most hormone balance doctors are familiar with the symptoms on this list. You are more likely to be prescribed progesterone based on these symptoms, rather than on your mental health diagnosis alone.
