I’m 52 and started peri-menopause symptoms last year. I had missed period and then 1 month+ of very heavy period. I was recommended 200 mg progesterone tablet which I later switched to this cream - best decision ever and my periods were regular till 3 months ago. I missed one month, the second was sort of regular but lasted 8 days and then I had another one in week which lasted 45 days - so I switched to using 200mg daily instead of the 14 days (I was on 28 day cycle through out my life till last year).
I did a test recently:
estradiol is 2973 pmol/L and
progesterone is 2.0 nmol/L.
The symptoms I have are constant breast tenderness, bloating. I Do have mood swings or irritable at times but manageable relative to bloating and tenderness.
Should I increase dosage to 400mg daily or go higher?
I do take daily 5000iu vitamin D3, 5000mcg vitamin B12 supplement and 65 mg elemental supplemental iron with vitamin C. Since the last year I am still on the lowest avg iron range to be ‘out of deficient range’
