Biote Pellets

by Ann

Hello! 5 years ago I began Biote pellets, over 2 years took 4 then stopped due to excessive hair loss. Hot flashes and insomnia came back about 6 mo ago. Desperate, I did another pellet 1 mo ago, dose recommended was 150 mg of testosterone, I asked for lower dose of 125 due to fear of hair loss again. Also prescribed 200 mg progesterone caplets at night. Hot flashes and insomnia improved. But 9 days in I began bleeding. I have been in menopause 12 years. Cramps, bleeding, what seemed like a period. Practitioner said this was very unusual, said I need a vaginal ultrasound. I found this website received cream yesterday. But before getting cream I tripled progesterone caplets. Bleeding better, now very erratic. I have normal range Vit D levels, been fine tuning that for a few years. Not sure what to do. Just cream until bleeding stops? From reading website I don’t think ultrasound necessary. I feel like it’s, of course, the estrogen. I had 12.5 mg estrogen in the pellet. I’m done with pellets forever!
Any advice is appreciated.
