I am taking .025 estrogen (climara patch) daily, and 200 mg of progesterone 2 weeks on 2 weeks off. I have been on the progesterone for about 2 months, and the estrogen for 2 weeks. I just ovulated a few days ago, and am experiencing major heart palpitations. I used to get heart palps around my period before the hormones, but never after I ovulate. Perhaps my hormones are still not balanced...What do you think this could indicate? I'd appreciate opinions. Thanks!

She says it's probably my body adjusting to the hormones... But, I was curious as to other people's experiences.... ???

I bet your palpitations are when you are not taking progesterone.  Heart palpitations can be an effect of low progesterone.  I've had seen patients run out of their progesterone and start getting heart palpitations.  You need to stop going from 200mg to 0mg.  Your need some progesterone during your weeks that you are currently taking none.

All the best

And why is that so ? Could you please tell me ? I am contemplating myself long and hart about just this subject. In nature you do not produce progesteron through the whole cycle. Why do you have to take it all the time ??

I had massive heart palpitations just before I went on bioidentical hormone replacement (it was the last straw that made me go to a doctor that specialized in regenerative medicine!).  The hormones immediately helped - I am on estrogen, progesterone and testosterone creams.  I have not had palpitations since... until I tried to take melatonin, which gave me the scariest night ever (massive palpitations, sweats, trouble breathing).  I have now be on the hormones for a year and feel so much stronger, younger and more energetic (even my wrinkles decreased immensely!).  It is worth the adjustment phase, just read everything you can on the matter.  Suzanne Somer's "Ageless" book is fantastic.
