Autoimmune disease and endometrial hyperplasia
I was diagnosed with Takayasu arteritis 11 years ago. Was taking prednisone and methotrexate as well as heart medication because a renal artery was damaged, which atrophied the kidney, which caused high blood pressure.
I have slowly reduced all medications, now only taking 5 mg methotrexate once a week. have been experiencing abnormally (for me) heavy periods with clotting for approximately 5 years, having to take ibuprofen to function through them. Recently diagnosed with a cyst (i think in an ovary) and endometrial hyperplasia. The gyn has taken a biopsy and am awaiting test results to see what stage it's at. Hopefully not gone as far as cervical cancer. I recently did a blood test for my hormone levels and am awaiting results. I have bought Serenity Progesterone Cream after having done some research. My reluctance to start using it is that I don't want my Takayasu to flare up with the initial reaction from the estrogen reacting to the progesterone.
Any advice would be appreciated.
