Amenorrhea for more than a year
I am 43-year-old woman. Around last May, I found myself to have post prandial hyperglycemia and decided to remove grains and sugar from my diet. I am 5'2", and previously weighed 102 lbs and now weigh about 99 lbs. This is not super skinny (maybe a bit underweight though) for my ethnic origin (Asian). However, since I started to cut grains/sugars, I have been missing period, although my weight loss is not so significant.
Recently, I had a saliva test to check my hormone levels, and got the results as below;
Estrogen: 0.9 pg/mL (normal range: 1.3-3.3)
Progesterone: 27 pg/mL (normal range: 75-270)
Ratio Pg/E2: 30 (normal range: 100-500)
Testosterone: 31 pg/mL (normal range: 16-55)
I do not have post-menopausal-like symptoms such as hot flushes, but I sometimes feel very tired and often almost falling asleep when I need to stay awake.
Today, I received Emerita Pro-Gest.
What would be the recommended initial dose?
To induce a period, should I use it for 21-days and discontinue for 1 week to see if my period would start?
Or, could it be possible to have my period while I am using Pro-Gest?
