I have been trying to balance my perimenopause symptoms for the last five months with Progesterone cream.
Hot flashes are gone and for me that's the most important thing to be rid of, however, things are still a bit erratic. My periods are 5-10 days late and with the last one I suffered migraine, food cravings, weight gain, breast tenderness and all those things happened as soon as I stopped the cream after 14 days.
I know you shouldn't use it during menstruation but I wondered if anyone does should they have PMS type symptoms or maybe I was using too much ?
I've been careful to avoid oestrogenic foods etc but sometimes it feels like I get a surge of oestrogen and wondered if things like exercise can make increased hormones ?
