Partial Hysterectomy and Progesterone Supplementation
Hi...I'm 45 y.o. and recently had a hysterectomy, but still have my ovaries. My periods were very regular (although heavy), and I have no symptoms of being in menopause. I DO however have signs of estrogen dominance. I was starting to use natural Progesterone Cream just prior to discovering I had very large uterine fibroids (10 c.m and one slightly smaller) and it really helped with a lot of my symptoms (PMS, bloating, fatigue, facial hair, etc). I want to go back to using the progesterone cream, but since I don't get a period any more, I don't know when to use it...prior to my hysterectomy would start using it at approx. day 14 of my cycle...now I don't know when to use it. Should I take my body temp. in the a.m. to determine if/when I'm ovulating?
