Testosterone therapy and irregular periods
About 6 months ago, I went to a Dr who specializes in bio identical treatment because I had lost interest in sex (I am 32 and newly married). I had no energy to do anything which is very out of character for me, and earlier that year I found out I had arthritis in both knees (I felt I was a tad young for that). I have been off the pill for about 1-2 years and had no other form of synthetic hormones in my system, and still don't.
They found I was highly deficient in testosterone and treated it by implanting a small testosterone pill under my skin that would last 3-6 months. I saw some improvement so I went back again about 2 months ago and they gave me the same thing again, along with an estrodial implant. They also gave me Prometrium pills to take "when I was not having my period" to keep them regular. At first I kept forgetting to take it, but over the last month have been much better.
Anyway, after getting the 2nd implant, my first period was 5 weeks apart (unusual, as mine are usually 4 weeks), but after that one cycle, I have been getting periods every 2 weeks! And, there are no PMS symptoms - I normally have horrible cramps, sore boobs, and extreme fatigue. These periods just show up with no warning and while they are very light, they still last about a week. Also, I used to get oilier skin and some zits right before my period, but now, I have SUPER oily skin all the time, and have had very bad acne issues since about a month after I got the second testosterone impant. The prometrium pills label says to take "during menzies" and I thought I was to take them while I was not bleeding. Should I be taking them at a different time, or for less time in between periods? I think my body is VERY confused right now. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks!
