Follow To My Previous Question - RE: Persistent Ovarian Cysts
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions! I'm strongly considering going ahead and upping my dosage of progesterone cream, I use Dr. Lee's Progesterall, so I'll have to calculate how much would equal 100-200 mg. I'm still waiting to hear from the gynecologist office about the lab work results, but I really don't want to have to undergo a hysteroscopy and D&C. I've actually had a very light bleed over the past few days, so light that a tampon wasn't even needed, so at least I know my uterine lining is being shed. I also don't want to undergo a cystectomy if I don't have to. I'm willing to try the higher dose of progesterone cream and put up with headaches if it means not having to have surgery. I'll also try the suggestion about putting the cream on the temples and back of neck. My question is this: My doctor mentioned something about checking on the cysts again in 6 months since they were stable and showed slight shrinkage. Since I'm in perimenopause, it makes complete sense to use the cream everyday since I have no cycle to follow. How long is it safe to stay at a 100-200 mg dosage per day or should that be the minimum even if my cysts were to resolve? Because right now, other than very irregular bleeding, I don't even call it periods anymore because as I told you before, I don't believe I'm even ovulating, my only issues are the ovarian cysts and 3 fibroids. If I hadn't had the workup in 2019, I would've never known I even had the cysts, because they like the fibroids are totally asymptomatic. I don't have any other perimenopausal type symptoms. THanks!
