Hi. I am 38 years old. I made 10 IVF failed attempts. Last one was 75 days ago and I have a very light period 10 days after the pregnancy test then I dont have period. I test estradiol and progestrone after 42 days of the last period and estradiol was 89 while progestrone was 0.1. My Doctor presceibed me progyluton after 55 days of the last period. My question : does this mean that i am in premature monopose? and is progyluton useful in my case and does it have a side effects? Thanks a lot

I have a question about heart rates and health in general. When I work out my heart rate seems all over the place. Today it went down to 55 and then jumped to 145 and then back down to 55 depending on how I was breathing. Is this dangerous? I feel completely fine. I thought that there might be something wrong with the machine I was using, but I tried the same thing on another machine and had similar results. One time, my heart rate went as high as 232. Also, when I sleep, my heart rate sky rockets after feeling really cold and waking up. I was told I m having panic attacks without anybody actually checking me out or running any tests. I used to be on medication for depression, but I stopped taking it because it seemed like the medication made these episodes worse. It s as if my body is thinking backwards in these situations. I m learning to just live with it, but I can t help but wonder why it happens to begin with. It doesn t seem normal. Also, my cholesterol was a little high at a health screening, so I ve cut back on dairy, and I don t eat a lot of junk food to begin with. I ve been to the doctors several times, but they just tell me my heart is healthy and sounds good. I wish people could see what s going on while I m sleeping or while I m exercising because those are the times I m really having issues. Any insight, suggestions, or advice would be appreciated.
