Wanting to get off birth control
I wrote before about being on Lo Estrin and wanting to try the progesterone cream. I want to stop taking the birth contol pills because of the bad side effects.
I'm afraid of my hot flashes coming back. I read on other sites that the progesterone cream only gets rid of some of the hot flashes. So how do I go about getting off of the birth control pills and taking the progesterone cream? I have an appointment for my pap test in December, so I will have my hormones checked then. I didn't think I could be on the birth contoll pill to have the test done. I wanted to make sure my estrogen levels weren't low also, because I heard this can give you hot flashes.
So should I try the progesterone cream first, to see how my body reacts to it with the birth control pills, and if I feel fine on the cream then stop the birth control pills?
