I am 48 and my periods have become very irregular over the past year. I've only had a few light periods in the last 9 months or so.
I started bleeding lightly about 5 weeks ago and it wouldn't stop. So I started using Progesterone cream to help stop the bleeding. (I used to use Vit A and that always worked but not anymore). Anyway, the more cream I use, the heavier I bleed. Now I'm bleeding heavily and I just want it to stop! No cramps or mood swings. The progesterone seems to be helping with a few other things :: namely my hair stopped falling out (whew) and I'm sleeping a bit better.
I keep reading to use more more more until symptoms respond but I just keep bleeding more more more.
I'm using Emerita @ 20mg/1/4 tsp. This morning I put a huge amount on, like 2 tsp. I barely had enough skin surface area on my body to rub it all in!
Guess what? Still bleeding!! uhg. I feel so helpless..
