Progesterone therapy cured my uterine problems

My GYN put me on 100mg of natural micronized progesterone cream daily for a thickened uterine lining and polyps. They found the condition by doing a vaginal ultrasound.

They did a biopsy which was negative. The GYN wanted to do a D&C but I opted to wait until taking the progesterone therapy for 6 months first. My recent vaginal ultrasound showed the lining is back to normal for me, I am post menopausal and the polyps are shrinking or non existent in some cases.

I am very thankful that my GYN has knowledge about bio-identical hormone therapy. I am continuing for another 6 months until all polyps are gone, then they will probably reduce the dosage some, depending on my hormone levels.

Progesterone therapy cured my uterine problems

Hi Kay This is good news your gyn knows about progesterone, so many don't. I'm delighted you opted to wait and see if the progesterone helped. There is no need to reduce the amount you're using, but if you do, please do it slowly. Dropping too fast causes symptoms to come back. I still use about 170mg/day, and that's after 15 years of using it. It's so protective against all the oestrogen mimics now on our planet, see the website Our Stolen Future for more info. It's also beneficial for ageing, see here, here, here and here. Take care Wray

Large uterine polyp
by: Anonymous

I saw my dr today. Having had heavy bleeding for the last 2 years she diagnosed me with 2 fibroids in 2015. I had a uterine biopsy which was negative. She put me on BC in September 2016 but after 3 months I threw them out. I wanted her to check me then but she insisted that I was only due for a pep smear in January. Today as she was doing my pap, she said "wow I see what your problems are. Omg! It's a polyp and the biggest I've seen since I've been practicing. I'm not sure why she felt that added information was something i needed to know but it only added stress. She is referring me to a gyno and told me she would prob recommend a hysterectomy. She also told me that I had to increase my iron or I would bleed to death and die. Lol lovely choice of words. So now I'm scared and confused. Is this cancerous? I was taking progesterone cream. Should I keep taking it ? Have a hysterectomy?
