Progesterone cream versus Climara Pro
by Martina Archuleta

I found out about progesterone from a friend and did a Yahoo search and found this webside. I did the test and my result was 24.
My symptoms range from anxiety to dry mouth and not being able to sleep. The anxiety is by far the worst. I have irrational fear and feel like I have my fingers in an electric socket. I can relate the symtoms to my cycle that is not regular any longer. I will turn 50 in a few months. Today I went to the obgyn for my regular check up and wanted to get a prescription for bio identical progesterone. I got a lot of talk and ended up with hormone patches called Climara Pro which contains estrogen and progestin. After reading all the side effects I am pretty sure I do not want to take them but I don't want the anxiety any longer either.
My husband is on the doctors side and tell me that the doctors go to school and I should just do what he says and that they have to write all the side effects on the package. But I have no desire to get a heart attack, a stroke or cancer just to prevent the menopausal symptoms. Please help me to make the best choice for me and how I would know how much progesterone to take if I decide to go this route. Thank you.
