Bleeding in between periods

by Brandye
(Florida)

I have loved my progesterone mostly, but these last two months I have started bleeding about 6 days after my period. It kills my mood and my body. I take 50mg day 1-7, 100mg day 7-14 and 200mg day 15-26 of my cycles all at night. I really feel as though my dosing is off to be causing this, but my doctor said it's not uncommon due to the fact that I only have 1 ovary.

Has anyone had the same problem?

Have you tried....

Upping your dose? As I understand it, progesterone shuts down bleeding so any bleeding you’re having is due to a surge in estrogen. To suppress it you might have to increase the dosage till your bleeding stops. Best of luck- it ain’t easy being a woman...

Hi Brandye

You have not been using progesterone correctly. It should be used no less than twice a day, half in the morning and the other half at night and between 100-200mg is needed using a good organic progesterone cream such as Natpro which is a 3% cream. Please read the How to use progesterone cream and Estrogen Dominance pages. I suggest that you use progesterone every day with no breaks until this improves. When it does, use the cream by following your cycle as explained in the how to use progesterone cream page.

You could also be in Peri-Menopause when spotting, clotting and irregular cycles happen, it usually starts around 35 when progesterone levels start to drop.

Vitamin D3 is very important, a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone. Nothing less than 5,000iu's per day is needed. Optimal range is between 70-100ng/ml. Magnesium and vitamin K2 with no soy are important co-factors needed when taking vitamin D3.
