I have been battling hormones my whole life but have always fallen within the "normal" ranges in blood tests. My periods have always been extremely irregular (in 2010 I didn't have a period for almost one year).
I have two children but also had two miscarriages before we were successful. I am 39 years old and fighting weight gain (even with heavy exercise), night sweats, acne, mid-cycle cramping and bloating and I still have no idea when I will actually start to bleed. I try to monitor my cycle through changes in mucus, but 12-14 days after I think I may be ovulating is never accurate. It's more like 21 to 28 days after I think I'm ovulating. I am so tempted to try progesterone cream but am afraid of more weight gain. Should I approach the treatment as if I am perimenopausal since I cannot track my irregular periods? How often and how much should I apply? Thanks in advance for any advice.
