NEED HELP! New to Progesterone; is bleeding normal?

by Amber
(Austin, TX)

Hi everyone,
I'm 35, 3 children and had tubal ligation after last one (5years ago). Needless to say, and to make long story short, I now don't believe what my OB doctor told me regarding hormones not being affected by tubal ligations. After experiencing all the same symptoms as most of you and about 5 different antidepressants later, I finally found a NP who did blood work and believed my problems were hormone related. She prescribed 75mg of oral compounded Progesterone and told me to start on Day 8 of my cycle. I did this and started bleeding again; my cycles before even though painful and very heavy have been somewhat normal....every 28 days and last 5-7 days. I called office and had another NP tell me, no, bleeding wasn't normal and to up dosage to 150mg QD on cycle days 15-28. I don't find any informative info on oral progesterone and according to what I read here, it sounds like 150mg is still too low of a dosage. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated; I'm very new to this. Oh, and NP also has me taking very high powered B vitamins, liquid Iron supplement, and D3 vitamin.

Thank you
