Should I stop using progesterone cream?
I started using the cream in 2013. I was 49 at the time. I started because my period went on for about two months and would not stop. The progesterone cream helped greatly. The bleeding stopped after a few weeks of using the cream and the cycle became normal - every 26/27 days lasting 3/4 days.
Since Feb 2015, I have not had a period. It’s been a year. I have no other menopausal symptoms like night sweats, hot flashes, etc.
Should I stop using the cream? If yes, how do I go about the dosage? Reduce gradually?
Also, I have gained about 9lbs / 4kgs since I have stopped getting periods.
Any thoughts on why I may have gained? No change in diet and I exercise regularly.
Thanks a lot for your help.
