Does progesterone cut out estrogen?
by Janet Richards
I was on HRT for 9 years and then had to come off very quickly as I had nausea and giddiness. I had a Merani coil which gave me the synthetic hormone and kept that in due to taking phytoestrogens.
I discovered the progesterone creme, which has helped me get a good night's sleep. Can I ask for a bit more information? Coil has been removed, so do I need to use the creme continuously as I am now 58 no cycle with a break of 4 days every 23 to 28. Can I take some phytoestrogens? Can I take a tablespoon of flaxseed for a little estrogen as to have estrogen for 9 years and then not have any seems such a big difference. Does progesterone cut out estrogen or does it run alongiside to balance the hormones? Many thanks.
