Bio-identical hormone replacement pellet therapy
(Tampa, FL, USA)
At 60, I recently discontinued a customized BHRT pellet implanted under my skin for estrogen and testosterone plus a nightly 200 mg sublingual progesterone troche dissolved daily under the tongue. Used this therapy for 3 years with quarterly blood tests to check hormone levels.
I decided to get off of it. I could not adjust the dosage of the pellet since it was implanted but as it was being used up, I adjusted down the progesterone troche dosage.
Menopausal symptoms were manageable until now. Started eating foods for estrogen and using 50 mg per day of progesterone cream. Now I have very heavy bleeding, gaining weight around mid-section. Do I need more progesterone to stop the bleeding?
