African American woman
(Newark, New Jersey)
I'm 52 years old and had a hysterectomy 9 years ago with only the uterus removed.
I don't have any hot flashes or night sweats but I do have very very dry skin, hair and nails, acne, lack the calm I used to have and I gained 45lbs. I cry at the drop of a hat and get easily irritated.
In particular I have developed a dark patch on the left side of my face! Its almost a shadow, no creams seem to fade it.
Do you think progesterone will help me? Also you say use it daily without a break which is contrary to what I have read. Please clarify.
Thank you for this great resource. I love getting this info, it's so empowering. So grateful for clarity and truth on this issue.
