I posted this on another thread titled "can I use too much progesterone"
Please excuse the double entry. I didn't get a reponse so I thought I would start my own thread.
Hi! I am having one of those long lasting periods that occasionally come because I am in perimenopause. I am 49 and have been through peri for the last 3-4 yrs. this is the second time in 2 yrs that I have had a prolonged period. Last time it lasted 3 weeks. This time it is two weeks and no sign of letting up. It is NOT extremely heavy. Flow changes from light to medium throughout the day. Some slight cramping every so often.
Here is my question. Will progesterone cream help stop the bleeding and help regulate my cycle? How should I use it? Can I start using it while I am still bleeding? Please help! The doctor wants to put me on pills. No way, no how!
