    Since estrogen dominance and the subject of diet has come up here, it is worth noting the connection.

    When my daughter was trying elimination diets there was a little improvement,.. so for a time we thought it might be a food intolerance or allergy. It was not enough to solve the problem BUT it does make sense that conventional dairy products would contribute to problems because it is loaded with hormones. Loaded. So mind your dairy intake and see if it could be contributing to your dry eye, it did seem to exacerbate my daughter's dryness.

            Hey Faith, good to hear it's arrived!

            Yes my daughter continues to to great! It is so great to see her getting sleep again, totally has restored her health for that reason alone. She no longer dreads bedtime, and no more waking up in pain. Such a relief she really has gotten her life back. I really do not think you need to be afraid of it. Large amounts over long periods of time might be something to be concerned about, but giving it a try to see should be safe. Far less risky than birth control pills or synthetic HRT or chemical medications, pretty sure! Doctors recommendations so far have been proven the riskiest and most harmful. Believe me I did my homework before suggesting this to my daughter. There are some who recommend really large doses and swear by it's safety. If you take the time to research the risks or side effects I think you would be reassured. Interestingly the FDA warning on the bottles of it actually stems from tests they did on synthetic oral progesterones, not wild yam progesterone cream at all! Pfft. I am not a doctor of course, but I have done the homework, always cautious. It has to be your decision though, an informed decision. The real damage actively occurring to my daughters body from such severe dryness so prolonged was the much much higher risk, unquestionably.

            She has just switched to a pricier brand. She prefers the consistency and texture of the more expensive type, seems to absorb better. The original cheaper stuff worked just fine though, really got the job done. Probably all the matters is that it is USP progesterone derived from wild yam and no synthetics.

            Hoping the best for you that this will help. Praying even. :-) Surely my daughter cannot be the only one this is effective for. Well according to scientific studies she's not, and I have come across others with sjorgrens that reported positive results. I'd say go for it, of course, but proceed cautiously and informed, no matter if it's a stranger on the internet or a doctor suggesting something.

                Hello all! Thank you justamom for this post. I teared up reading this because you sounded like you were describing me! I am a 25 year old female and I have been suffering with severe dry eye since February of this year. I was diagnosed with PCOS about 7 years ago and have been on birth control pills to control the erratic periods. I got off birth control this January to become hormone-free and after my mother was diangosed with breast cancer to decrease my own cancer risk. Unfortunately one of the side effects of getting off birth control was severe dry eye overnight. I am thinking of going on progesterone cream to control PCOS and hopefully improve my dry eye symptoms! I was told i produce healthy amounts of oil but my aqueous production is extremely low. I have been on Lotemax, Xiidra, and Restasis with no success. I truly believe my hormone imbalance is what is causing the dry eyes and I am hoping to regain my life back as a 25 year old! Justamom, would you please message me the name of the cream your daughter is currently using and directions on how she uses it? Your post has made me hopeful, thank you!

                  Hi Faith

                  She has indications of PCOS and much menstrual distress which is why she was put on bc pills, and yes some acne issues. Occasional touch of rosacea but not enough to cause alot of concern there. Yes she had MGD though, big time.
                  Since the progesterone cream had such a quick and dramatic effect I can only assume it's been estrogen dominance all along. Now going on two months 98% better after 4 years of hell.

                    I don't want to jinx it so knock on wood but for the last few days of using it I have felt better. I get severe PMS sometimes can't even stand up the cramping is so bad. My eyes always flare before my period when progesterone is SUPOSE to be high but I suspect mine is low and I'm having estrogen dominance. I am
                    also doing a low carb low sugar diet. Yes I also have severe MGD (doctors say it's mild) and am around your daughters age!

                      Oh boy, I am happy to hear this could be helping you. Very hopeful you will experience the same relief! Very exciting. Watch the dairy consumption too, loaded with estrogen. Keep us posted!
