Can I take Progesterone with Loestrin 24Fe
I am on a low dose bith control pill, the loestrin 24 Fe and was wondering if I could take the progesterone with it. I am 48 yrs old. I went off the pill a year ago and started having hot flashes, so I went back on the birth control.
I was having regular periods until this month I didn't have one. I have gained about 15 lbs in the last year and I feel tired all of the time. I have no energy and my body is achy when I wake up in the morning. I get between 7 to 8 hours of sleep at night. I have also become very forgetful at times. I don't work, so I don't think I should feel tired all of the time. If you do say it is ok to take with my birth control pills, how much progesterone should I use ? And will it help with the weight gain, the tiredness and forgetfulness?
