Will prosterone help uterine polyps??
I am a 32 year old female. I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 15. I've always struggled with weight, facial hair, hair loss, etc. All the classic PCOS symptoms. About six months ago I ended up in the emergency room because I was hemorraging blood. I ended up getting three blood transfusions, and was diagnosed with uterine polyps. I had a D&C and for a couple of months I felt AMAZING. Weight dropped off and I had a ton of energy. A couple of months after the surgery I decided to stop taking the birth control pills and start progesterone cream instead. I continued to have estrogen dominence symptoms for months. All of the weight I had lost plus a few pounds came right back. My energy dropped and started feeling moody and depressed again. A few weeks ago I started hemorraging again, and found out that my polyps are back and more plentiful than before. I am scheduled for another D&C and my doctor wants to insert an IUD, which I am very opposed to.
I understand now that I wasn't taking enough progesterone... my questions is this: will progesterone keep my lining from getting really thick again? I'm very opposed to progestins, but I'm scared that there is something else wrong with me and the progesterone won't help. I can't handle ANOTHER surgery six months from now. I'm so depressed I can't see straight and my doctor wants to put me on antidepressents, which I'm also opposed to. I'm currently looking for a doc that is a little more on board with natural treatments, but in the meantime, have you heard of progesterone cream helping uterine polyps? how much would I need to take for that???
