My 1st cycle came today, cant remember the last, I can use a little guidance
I hope all is well.
To my complete shock I woke up to my menstrual cycle, shocked! I was lucky if I had a cycle on birth control, when I did it was rare and very, very heavy with lots of clotting.
This must sound so ridiculous ay my age, but this is the only place where someone will understand "I got my period" eh hem, at 42 years old. I had some mild cramping yesterday, but I'm so used to feeling that, with no results, my mood was really good as well, so I figured it's my usual self. I guess the excitement is from my body doing something it is supposed to do.
Yesterday evening I increased my dosage by 40mg, I am usually using 120mg daily. Some unexpected news came, and I became very stressed, so I figured I would take the advice here and increase the dose a little.
My questions are, did the dose increase bring on my period? If so, does that mean its an optimal dose for me? And should I stay on progesterone through the bleeding and for 3 months as I read if you have severe PCOS. Or should I try to create a cycle now? I have been only using it 2 1/2 weeks. I don't want to screw anything up and make the wrong move.
Thank you for any advice,
have a great day!
