So confused, please help

I am a 49 year old woman (soon to be 50) I have always had menstruation problems my whole life. From having uteruran Cancer 15 yrs ago, diagnosed with PCOS to just plain hormonal inbalance, to where they would prescribe birth control to ease the heavy periods, or irregular periods.
I am a Type II Diabetic and I also have high blood pressure. Because of my health issues they thought maybe putting me on a light does of birth control would be best and the one they prescribed was "the mini pill". While they gave me this my period would not stop for over 2 months where they took me off and thought just having a tubal ligation would be best. Lately I have had several signs of peri-menopause, such as moodiness, crying alot, i do not get hot flashes but I will get cold ones instead. In January I had a period that lasted 8 weeks and my Dr prescribed provera where it did stop for 2 days only then I began to hemorrhage.
I did take your progesterone deficiency test, which shows that I am. But I worry with the hormones they have given me and the results I have had (not good ones) How would progesterone therapy would work for me.
Thank you for your time.
