Progestererone Helped Me In Many Ways
I've always had irregular menstrual cycle ranging from 20-30days and sometimes skips or bled in between periods. 2years ago, I complained of severe abdominal pains and blood in my urine. I went through a series of tests then my gynecologist found out 2 cervical polyps and since then I have to be monitored every 3 months.
There was nothing they could do but advised me to take Advil for pain and contraceptive pills - hopefully to regulate my menses and control the bleeding in between. But I tend to forget taking it on time so I went back to my doctor and he prescribed Medroxyprogesterone Ac 150mg 4 times a year. Since then, excessive menstrual bleeding and other symptoms have ceased. I'm on it for a year now, and it's side effects are just starting to manifest such as change in appetite (I gained 12lbs) and sleep disturbances due to unexplained chest pains.
I'm only 31 years old so I wonder if this might be solely due to progesterone therapy or something else that I have to worry about. I'm not sure if my family has a cardiovascular risk or is it because I'm stressed with work lately...
I am to go back to get another shot tomorrow and routine check up on November 22, 2011.
