Fibroids for 15 years
I am 54 and although I do not appear to have any pre-menapausal symptoms according to my doctor ! I have had fibroids for at least 15 years and very heavy periods I am also very overweight. I used a progesterone cream to help with the heavy periods and this worked really well. I got the aneamia under control and felt less tired.
I had been using the cream for some time twice a day for the second half of my cycle, but found that I would get slight cramping by mid afternoon.
I read on the Dr Mercola web site about using the cream in the vagina which I did for a few months. However, I began to have quite severe pain in my hips when walking up and down stairs. To the extend that I could hardly get up stairs on an evening. I stopped using the cream and these symptoms disappeared almost immediately. However, I am back to heavy bleeding, feeling very tired and a real lack of vitality.
The progesterone cream I used was not the one you recommend, but do not want to name it on your site as this may not be appropriate. I would really like to start using a cream again as I feel it really helped but have been put off by my experience. Are you aware of this problem occurring in some women ?
