Am I a candidate for use of progesterone?
I am 46, currently in perimenopause. For the past 6-7 years, been experiencing frequent spotting between periods, sometimes 2 menses in a month. Recent months, my 28-day cycle had shortened to 16 day, meaning 2 periods in a month. Ultrasound, pap smear, colpo all turned out normal. In fact, the doctors just doesn't know what to do with my bleeding problems. Too old for OC pills, other hormone pills is not an option for me. Tried many herbal supplements - chasteberry, dong gui, flaxseed oil, black cohosh, sheep placenta, herbal blend supplements etc. None works for me. Even DIM cause me to bleed after just one week of use. Use of progesterone cream will be my last resort. So, do you think I am a good candidate to try the progesterone cream? The frequent bleeding is really tiring me out severely.
Best rgds to all.
