What about blood clots?
Thank you so much for all the information on PCOS. I really enjoyed reading! I have been on spironolactone for 12 years. Recent studies say that long term use can cause tumors. My doctor reduced my dose by half, after some begging.
I started Progesterone Cream a month ago... I tried to talk to my gynecologist about dosing; she wouldn't comment because it's not FDA approved. I continued on with about 45mgs + spironolactone. I feel so good. I feel like myself again! :-D Today I went to my family doctor and talked to him about the progesterone cream. He told me that he can't recommend it because studies aren't done properly (20%-30% is just placebo); it causes blood clots; and it hasn’t been proven to actually do anything. I know that he is wrong about the fact that it doesn’t do anything!! What about blood clots? I read on a few sites that there are no side effects. My body needs this cream badly!! I feel a little apprehensive about using it now. Is there any truth to this?
I also have a question about my mother. She had a hysterectomy 10 years ago. She’s been on Premarin. She wants to quit and start estrogen cream. Should she be using progesterone also?
Thanks again for all the information!
