"Extra" periods and use of progesterone cream
I'm clearly entering the pre-menopause phase, as my cycles seem to be all over the place. I am 48 this year, and have used progesterone cream on prescription (1,7 % made at pharmacy after dr. Lee's receipe) for about ten years. In the beginning it got my periods right back on 28 day cycles (up until my late 30s I was spot on time every month), but the last couple of years it's been 25-26. I have stopped using the cream when I got my period, and started again 12 days after. But the last year or so I've had some "extra" periods in between. Not just spotting, full bleedings for 4-5 days, and they come right in between two ordinary periods. I have so far stopped progesterone when the bleeding comes, but then it starts up again two weeks after anyway. It then goes on in 25-26 days cycles for a while, before a new "extra". Should I just keep on using the cream through the "extra" periods and stick to the main cycle? I feel much better in every way when using it, so I really don't want to go for too long without it. I've seen some say to use it every day without breaks in pre-menopause too, so I'm really confused.
