I've had my "period" now for almost 2 months. I'm 49 years old, but my naturopath says I am not "officially" in menopause. My blood level of progesterone was low so I was prescribed 150mg troche of progesterone to take to help stop the bleeding.
I've taken the progesterone at night for 2 weeks now and though the bleeding has not stopped, it has developed a definite pattern: I start getting cramps about 7AM that last until about 3PM (the whole work day!). The bleeding is moderate but constant. In the evening it tapers off and the next day the pattern resumes. I've decided just a couple of days ago to see if taking half the troche at night and half in the morning would do anything. Today I continued to bleed as before, but the cramps were much lighter.
My doctor had advised me it would take about 10 days to stop the bleeding but its already longer than that and I see no end in sight. Any advice?
