I'm really confused
I'm 53 and I'm pretty sure menopause is underway. I was having a regular period until 4 months ago. One was very late, the next was pretty regular.
I started on progesterone using it every day since I am in that peri-menopause stage. The next month I stopped using the progesterone on the "on and off day method" and I began to bleed like never before. Heavy, heavy bleeding, clots and very bright red blood. I tried not to be nervous since I had read these symptoms before but this went on for 2 weeks.
I started back on my progesterone doses and it let up the next day and by day 3 had stopped completely. Now its been 3 weeks and no period at all. I don't know if that's good or bad? I have had migraines for 10 years 2 days prior to my period starting and then no migraines until the next month... same routine over and over. That's why I decided to try the progesterone. This month I still had the migraine and a little cramping but no period has started yet. I'm afraid to stop the progesterone fearing the same heavy bleeding might return. I don't know if my periods are trying to fizzle out all together or if I may still be ovulating... I'm really confused.
If this sounds familiar to anyone, I could use some advice, I haven't gone to a gyn. yet. Thanks.
