I am 45, going through perimenopause. Was still having estrogen dominance symptoms on 200mg and 400mg of oral bio-identical progesterone taken daily (no breaks). In the middle of October my Dr prescribed me 600mg oral, daily. After that I got my first period on 11/4 for 7 days (normal), then next one on 11/22 (too soon) and I am still bleeding and spotting on and off since then (12 days). I went to my Dr. today, and she said that it is "normal" for perimenopause (which I read about too), but what bothers me that when I asked her if I should switch to cream, since it's more efficient, she said that I would have to apply it all over me, since I need a big dosage. From what I've read, I would need a smaller dosage of cream than oral, so I am not sure if I can trust her knowledge and now I don't know
-if I I should keep taking 600mg of oral and wait maybe it'll settles down in a cycle or two;or
- switch to cream (not sure how to convert pills dosage to cream dosage;or
-just add some cream to 600mg of oral;or
Please-please help, I am confused.
Thank you so much
