Bio identical Progesterone Question

I have PCOS and low progesterone. I have been taking bio identical progesterone for 2 months and have found it very helpful BUT when I have to stop it to have a cycle (20 days on, 8 days off) I fall off a cliff. It's horrible. My energy disappears, I become depressed (I've never been depressed in my life!) it's just...awful.

Is there any way to mitigate this? Or will my body eventually adjust with time?

Am I doomed to lose 8 days of my life every month?

I feel great when I'm on it, progesterone has been a god send, but how do I survive without it?
