Progesterone and tubal ligation
I am 37 years old and for the last year I have been dealing with constant spotting and bleeding. I took the depo shot (I had 3 of them) and I gained weight and the bleeding was not changed just more unpredictable.
I had a normal period in May of '09 and 2 weeks later I started bleeding again and I would have spotting and bleeding every single day. I've been to 3 different doctors who have done every test known to man and there's nothing physically wrong with me. They're wrong. I have alot of premenopausal symptoms even though they have done the blood tests and tell me that my horomones are fine.
I know in my heart that I'm estrogen dominant. Mostly over the year it has been light bleeding and spotting, but on June 18 of this year I started bleeding heavily and I just thought that maybe my body was trying to have a normal period since I don't feel like I've really had one over the last year. For 7 days it was really heavy and clotty, I don't have insurance so I can't go to the dr and I was to the point where I just couldn't take it anymore. I tried several homeopathic remedies and rasberry leaf tea seemed to help but didn't stop the bleeding enough.
I started progesterone cream that I bought at my local GNC store and as of yesterday my bleeding stopped completely! What I wanted to ask is since I have had a tubal I don't want to have any more children and I'm afraid that may be a possibility due to the progesterone. The doctors told me it was permanent but I'm still worried, can you give me some advice? Thank you.
