I use estrogen patches along with oral Progesterone 100 mg/day to oppose the effects of estrogen on the endometrium.
I have been on this regimen for some 35 years with no bleeding and no vaso-motor symptoms.
I would like to use less oral progesterone because of the expense. Can I go to an everyother month regimen with the oral progesterone and if so should I remain on 100 mg/day for that month. Iam concerned that I might have some bleeding. I assume that at my age the endometrium is so atrophic that I will not bleed. I know my risk of endometrial cancer is low to rare on my current regimen and want to know if decreasing the progesterone will change my risk.
