How much progesterone should I take?
I was on HRT for several years and switched to the estriol/progesterone cream. Then, my doctor prescribed estrio vaginal cream and I took that on and off for a couple of years.
Lately, I have had a heavy feeling and thought it might be bladder but then had a couple times of light spotting. I am 65 and postmenopausal so my doctor ordered an ultrasound which showed the uterine lining to be 11.5. I just had a biopsy and am waiting on the results. If they are not cancerous, how much progesterone can I take and how often? Also, my doctor prescribed the 100 milligram in a vaginal cream for once daily but it burns. What should I do? She says the progesterone might help reverse the size of the lining and she says I may have fibroids so wants to do a D&C.
