Fibroids an excessive bleeding
I am a 43 year old woman who had a problem with fibroids and heavy bleeding. I've had the fibroids for many years but no symptoms. The bleeding started 6 month ago and is really heavy and lasted firtst for 30 days, then it didn't bleed for 2 months, then it started again and I bled for almost 50 days.
I really eat well, exercise and meditate and am healthy and fit, but this bleeding... After 50 days of constant bleeding I started to eat Primolut-Nor which is a synthetic progestene and it made me stop immediately. I don't like to take synthetic stuff but that was really a relief. My hb was down in 75. My estradiol is 926 pmol/L and my progesterone is less than 3 nmol/L. My thyroid also showed signs of hypo (8.7 mIE/L).
I cannot discuss such a thing as estrogen dominance with Swedish doctors because here in Sweden that is not considered as something that exists as a diagnosis, i.e. not treatable.
Well, I want to ask you if you consider my progesterone low and if I could have estrogen dominance? I have been taking progesterone cream for a month and really try to live very healthily in every way and don´t really know what to do more to get my estrogen down (if this is necessary). I hope that you can help me in any way. Do you have any advice for me and do you have any suggestions about why I'm bleeding? How does it all fit together and what is the core issue? Bless you for trying to help women with theese kinds of problems.
Kind regards from Anne in Sweden
