Progesterone is an important hormone that both men and women produce. Women rely more on progesterone, especially to do things like protect an ongoing pregnancy and to keep menstrual cycles regular. When women do not have enough of this hormone they may experience low progesterone symptoms, which can be extremely varied and affect many systems in the body.
Low progesterone symptoms can manifest as directly related to menstrual cycle, fertility and reproductive issues. Some common symptoms include irregularity of the menstrual cycle, strong cramps during menstruation, higher incidence of PMS, and greater presence of blood clots during periods. When progesterone levels are very low, infertility may occur because ovulation is not occurring. Another affected aspect can be sex drive or libido, which may be reduced.
These low progesterone symptoms aren’t always dangerous. A female body's production of progesterone naturally decreases 10 to 12 days after ovulation occurs, unless a woman becomes pregnant. This decrease triggers the start of menstruation and can lead to some of the normal symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle, like cramping and PMS. When periods are irregular, however, it may suggest greater imbalance of progesterone levels or other important hormones that regulate the menstrual cycle.
It’s also valuable to understand that menopause causes reduction in progesterone and this may be responsible for certain menopausal symptoms like moods swings, hot flashes, decreased libido, and insomnia. Other low progesterone symptoms may affect women before and after menopause occurs. People may feel fatigue, have dry skin, experience insomnia, have depression, and be likely to put on weight.
Sometimes low progesterone symptoms can be more dangerous. Chronic depression or anxiety, for instance, could lead to risk to suicidal behavior. Low progesterone levels can create dysfunction of the thyroid gland, and most seriously, certain forms of cancer may be more likely, including uterine cancer.
Another possible set of symptoms associated with low progesterone are those affecting memory. People may experience memory loss or lack of mental acuity when levels of this hormone are well below normal. These symptoms may be directly related to lower thyroid hormone. If low progesterone causes hypothyroidism, this in turn can result in difficulty with memory and concentration. Alternately, both hormones aid in mental acuity and lack of both makes decline in mental sharpness more severe.
If you think you have low progesterone levels, you should see your doctor. Many women have a few of these symptoms but never check because their low progesterone symptoms are not too bothersome. Occasionally, slightly reduced levels of progesterone create small concern, but some women find help if they take additional progesterone hormone. There are some over the counter natural progesterone creams you can purchase, but if you really feel your body needs supplementation with this hormone, you should consult a doctor first.
42) Does anyone have symptoms of heavy long periods due to low progesterone. Mine was at a 7 before I got on 300mg of progesterone. I am 30 and dealt with this since I was 10 years old. It’s been a long battle for me. Due to the severity of this we have not been able to conceive a child of our own. Without progesterone my period will last on the average four to six weeks with about a one or two week break and then back on again.
41) I have an autistic daughter who started having seizures last fall. The doctor prescribed a particular med and now her seizures have increased, so the doctor kept increasing the med and the seizures have increased as well.
I started seeing a pattern with her periods and ovulation with the seizures. Last night, I started looking at possible links and found out that increased estrogen and low progesterone can cause seizures. I then looked at symptoms of low progesterone and realized I've suffered from those symptoms for many decades.
The vaccine requires two doses, 2 to 4 weeks apart, followed by re vaccination. Often dogs that are vaccinated for kennel cough are vaccinated for canine influenza as well. Most dog shelters and veterinarians offer the vaccine a low cost ($35 to $45).
The dog flu vaccine is a killed viral vaccine, so there is no potential for the vaccine to cause the virus itself. It is save for dogs 6 weeks of age or older. Like other dog influenza vaccines, it may not prevent infection of the dog, but will reduce the severity of the clinical disease, it will reduce the progression of the disease to pneumonia, and reduce the time that a dog can spread the disease to other dogs.

I think you’re better off going cold turkey.n I tried weaning off and in the end the effects of withdrawal were horrible anyway. If you can stick with it for 4 to 6 weeks, they will subside …. Hope you can hang in there.
After an obnoxious amount of digestive upset, numerous UTI’s and 30+ pounds of weight gain, I have finally significantly reduced my aspartame intake. I made the decision one day after feeling incredibly bloated and gross. I was up to drinking 1-2 can’s of Pepsi Max and 1-2 glasses (equal to 4 servings) of crystal light a day. In addition I chew gum, up to 7 pieces a day. I am now on day 13 of no beverages or foods with aspartame. I still chew the gum as I have not yet found a substitute, but only about 3-4 pieces a day. For me, gum is more of a physical addiction. I need to chew on something. I have replaced my daily beverages with plain water, sparkling seltzer water that is only carbonated water and natural flavors, no other ingredients. When I feel like I want some soda, I drink regular. I don’t really crave pop anymore so I only have maybe 2-3 a week. As for caffeine, I take Green Tea tablets. I am more cautious of ingredients in everything. I never had a weight problem until I used “diet” beverages and foods. This sucks as I now have more than 30 pounds to try and lose.
As for the withdrawal…the first 7-10 days were the most difficult. I have had mood swings between anger and wanting to just cry for no reason at all. I do feel like those are beginning to subside some also. I have also began to get really itchy all over, no rash, just itchy and my muscles are achy. I am guessing that this is my body “cleansing” itself of the toxins. I knew going into this there was no quick fix, so I am prepared to deal with this until I am clean. I already feel better and my digestive system no longer sounds like I have an alien living inside of me. I am less bloated and I am beginning to come out of the fog and feel like me again.
Thank you for this article, it is a real problem, the artificial sweeteners. I am more cautious now and will continue to be.
Aspartame withdrawal: my symptoms – hostility, anger, headaches, diarrhea, joint pain, clumsiness including falling, trouble sleeping, nightmares, jaw pain, dizziness. Diet coke addict for thirty years (3-5) servings per day. Plus equal user. Trying sugar and Pepsi one now.
Day 8 and I thought I was doing great until I started feeling a yeast infection coming on. I can do this. I can do this. I am 42 and started drinking diet coke in high school. I started drinking more and more. Too much. I weened myself off…wish I would have gone cold turkey though… Side affects would have subsided sooner.
Joint pain-shoulders elbows wrists
Lower back pain
Hyper at times
Lethargic – missed 2 days of work
I want to know why there is nothing credible popping up on all my searches? And I want to know why they are allowed to still allow us to consume this poison? I must say, I am not looking forward to whatever else is going to happen to my body over the next few weeks. However, emotionally I feel fantastic and I have gotten great sleep the past couple nights.
Day 5, second time giving up diet sodas, diet dr peppers and diet cokes being my drug of choice. I am severely addicted, diet drinks have literally been the only liquid I consume other than milk in cereal. I have been addicted over 10 years. The first time I gave it up the symptoms were the same but this time they are much harder to handle. The first symptom to manifest is emotional, floating from anger to sadness to frustration. Then I feel like my body begins a purge, first by canker sores then yeast infection (sorry fellas for tmi) now I’m in the headache and body ache stage accompanied by lethargy and inability to sleep, anxiety and continued emotional withdrawal. I had to leave work early today. This addiction is no laughing matter and I long for the day when the dangers of this poison are more widely known and taken seriously. It’s hard to explain to others what you are going though by giving up the diet drinks, most people don’t take you seriously and that only makes it harder.
My real problem started when I moved to Canada. I am used to drinking cordials in UK which do not contain aspartame. I rarely drank much diet coke.
However they don’t have cordials in Canada and the fruit drinks here give me acid reflux, even water has an effect. I found diet coke didn’t upset my stomach so all I could do was use that as my main fluid intake. Anyway 3years down the road I haven’t been well at all since moving to Canada. I have gained weight and basically having problems with the food and drink here (all the additives) I realized this week it appears I have symptoms of aspartame poisoning, so I gave up diet coke three days ago. I found some English Elderflower drinks which do not seem to affect me.
My first day I felt sick and had cravings for sweet things. My second day I felt flu like feelings and my glands were raised. My third day today I developed a terrible migraine and had to lay in a dark room and I have buzzing in my ears.
I am however determined to eat healthy now and loose weight. I have gained around 60lbs since moving to Canada yep 60lbs but I am determined to loose it all and regain my health. So three days into my new life. The good thing is I am finally able to shop more healthy and have worked out the system here. Shopping has been difficult as 90% of products are different so basically I have picked all the wrong foods including US fruit which was obviously irradiated. I bought strawberries they were in the fridge over a month and didn’t show one sign of mould.
THERE IS NO LABELLING WHICH STATES IRRADIATION OR MOST OF THE ADDITIVES
I am becoming wise at long last. So wish me luck
For the last 6 years I’ve consumed between 2-6 cans of diet cola a day. I’m currently on day 7 of quitting and I feel like death… For the past few days I’ve been irritable and lethargic with blurred vision and uncontrollable bouts of depression. Yesterday I was reduced to lying in a dark room all day because of the horrific migraine I had, and today I’m dizzy and suffering with awful vertigo… I now feel the need to tell everyone I know about aspartame. It’s TOXIC!
I’m on day 7 and feel the very same. I’ve been addicted for 30 yrs
Ugh. I’ve been a regular diet dr. Pepper drinker for about 4-5 years now. It’s definitely within the last 9 months that I’ve increased my intake dramatically. I’d say that I drink between 4-9 cans a day. I’m an addict. And I definitely suffer from aspartame poisoning. And i only just realized my symptoms: fatigue, irritability, anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain, carb craving, foggy head, confusion, joint pain, headaches…the depression was the biggest concern. And it’s been getting worse and worse…I thought I was going crazy. I would catch myself mid thought and forget was I was tasking about. At work recently Ive found myself many times having a hard time “getting it together.” Being forgetful, flighty, discombobulated, etc…and I found myself near tears at work like 4 times last night. For no reason at all. No good reason at least. Lamenting over my stressful, but good life. That was my big aha…something is NOT right and I thought it was more than jsut regular depression.
Colds usually clear up within 7 to 10 days. See a doctor if:
- your cold hasn’t improved in about a week
- you start to run a high fever
- your fever doesn’t go down
You could have allergies or a bacterial infection that requires antibiotics, such as sinusitis or strep throat. A nagging cough could also be a sign of asthma or bronchitis.
There’s an old saying that goes, “We can put a man on the moon, but we still can’t cure the common cold.” While it’s true that doctors haven’t yet developed a vaccine, there are ways to prevent this mild but annoying affliction.
Because colds spread so easily, the best prevention is avoidance. Stay away from anyone who is sick. Don’t share utensils or any other personal items, such as a toothbrush or towel. Sharing goes both ways — when you’re sick with a cold, stay home.
Practice good hygiene. Wash your hands often with hot water and soap to get rid of any germs you might have picked up during the day, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Keep your hands away from your nose, eyes, and mouth when they’re not freshly washed. Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze, and always wash your hands afterward.
Influenza — or the flu, as it’s better known — is another upper respiratory illness. Unlike the cold, which can hit at any time of year, the flu is generally seasonal. Flu season usually runs from fall to spring, peaking during the winter months.
During flu season, you can catch the flu in the same way you’d pick up a cold: by coming into contact with droplets spread by an infected person. You’re contagious starting 1 day before you get sick and up to 5 to 7 days after you show symptoms.
The seasonal flu is caused by the influenza A, B, and C viruses, with influenza A and B being the most common types. Active strains of influenza virus vary from year to year. That’s why a new flu vaccine is developed each year.
Unlike the common cold, the flu can develop into a more serious condition, such as pneumonia. This is especially true for:
- young children
- older adults
- pregnant women
- people with health conditions that weaken their immune system, such as asthma, heart disease, or diabetes
In most cases, fluids and rest are the best ways to treat the flu. Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration. Over-the-counter decongestants and pain relievers, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen, may control your symptoms and help you feel better. However, never give aspirin to children. It can increase the risk of a rare but serious condition called Reye’s syndrome.
Your doctor may prescribe antiviral drugs — oseltamivir (Tamiflu), zanamivir (Relenza), or peramivir (Rapivab) — to treat the flu. These drugs can shorten the duration of the flu and prevent complications such as pneumonia. However, you need to take them within the first 48 hours of getting sick for them to work.
If you’re at risk of complications from the flu, call your doctor when you first have symptoms. People at risk of serious complications include:
- people older than 50 years
- pregnant women
- children younger than 2 years
- those with weakened immune systems due to HIV, steroid treatment, or chemotherapy
- people with chronic lung or heart conditions
- people with metabolic disorders, such as diabetes, anemia, or kidney disease
- people living in long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes
Contact your doctor right away if your symptoms do not improve or if they become severe. See a doctor if you have signs of pneumonia, including:
- trouble breathing
- severe sore throat
- cough that produces green mucus
- high, persistent fever
- chest pain
Call a doctor right away if a child develops the following symptoms:
- trouble breathing
- extreme fatigue
- refusing to eat or drink
- trouble waking up or interacting
The best way to prevent the flu is by getting the flu shot. Most doctors recommend getting the flu vaccine in October, or at the very start of flu season. However, you can still get the vaccine in late fall or winter.
To avoid picking up the flu virus, wash your hands often with soap and warm water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your nose, eyes, and mouth. Try to stay away from anyone who has the flu or flu-like symptoms.
- In certain instances, people feel pain in the lymph nodes after drinking alcohol.
- If the lymphoma involves lymphatic tissue within the abdomen, bowel or stomach, fluid may build up causing swelling near the intestines, potentially leading to sensations of abdominal pressure, pain, diarrhea and/or indigestion.
- The enlarged lymph node sometimes causes other symptoms by pressing against a vein (causing swelling of an arm or leg), or against a nerve (causing pain, numbness, or tingling in an arm or leg).
- Some people experience lower back pain that is unexplained. It is thought that this may be caused by expanding lymph nodes pressing on nerves.
- As lymphomas progress and cancerous lymphocytes spread beyond the lymphatic system, the body loses its ability to fight infection. The generalized symptoms that develop may be confused with signs of influenza, tuberculosis, other infections such as infectious mononucleosis or other cancers.
It's important to recognise the symptoms of cat flu as quickly as possible so you can take swift action to get your pet on the road to recovery.
Sneezing is one of the most obvious signs of cat flu or cat colds, and is usually accompanied by a discharge from the nose and eyes.
You may notice swelling around your cat's eyes, and in extreme cases, they can be completely closed.
After a few days, you may notice that the discharge from the eyes becomes yellow and much thicker. In many cases, your cat will become completely lethargic and have a high temperature.
Your cat will appear to have no interest in doing the things it
normally does and will seem out of sorts with everything.
Other symptoms to watch out for include tongue ulcers and enlarged tonsils which can make it very painful for your cat to eat and swallow. These symptoms are likely to lead to your cat refusing to eat and drink, creating a very real danger of dehydration.
Coughing and drooling can also be clear indications of cat flu or cat colds. Drooling can be particularly upsetting for cat owners as your moggy's fur can become completely soaked in saliva. Coughing is also very distressing and can sometimes lead to retching.
Below are details of the main symptoms associated with each of the two viruses normally associated with cat flu - Feline HerpesVirus (FHV- 1) and Feline Calicivirus (FCV)
Feline HerpesVirus (FHV- 1):
