Don’t know what to do anymore...
Last July I started bleeding. I thought it was because I was on the keto diet my dr. put me on. Months later my bleeding continued and got super heavy to the point I couldn’t leave my home. Saw my GYN and he gave me some options. I’m super sensitive to medication and am allegeric to a lot so I just stay away for it. End of January came and my option was to have a DNC due to the many polyps. I also have a large cyst on my left ovary that he’s watching. Before my surgery my dr. said I needed to take some progesterone to stop my bleeding. I researched and found one called prometrium. Pharmacy had generic version that stopped my bleeding within 2 days. Yeah right? Well, after my DNC feb 5th I was doing good until March 15th when the spotting started and I’m back to square one of bleeding again for a month. Dr. Put me on Prometrium again. This time the pharmacy filled the actual prometrium. Day two in taking it gave me sever dizziness to the point while I was lying down and closing my eyes I was spinning. My dose is 200mg. Couldn’t handle it and hated the way it made me feel the next day. I Had some of the generic prometrium left from before my dnc, also 200 mg and it’s giving me slight dizziness and today (my 3rd dose) my hair is falling out :’(
I just turned 45 and was/am hesitant in taking this medication since I lost my mom to breast cancer when she was 38. The bleeding hasn’t stopped this time and I’m seriously an emotional mess. I don’t like how I feel on this Medicine and don’t know what to do. I found this website while researching more about progesterone.
Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.
