Have a period every 10 days
I’m 42 years old and I think I’m in peri menopause because when I turned 40 I started having a few irregular periods which one was 18 days long! I was so worried that I went to see a gynecologist and they did a bunch of tests and sent me over for an ultrasound and everything came back fine. She told me I was not pre menopause I was still quite fertile. Of course she offered the pill or iud to stabilize it. I declined for the time being. Well the following year I had the worst period of my life it lasted 25 days which a couple of days of changing pads/ tampons every hour I really thought I was going to die! I was really considering the pill then because I didn’t know what else to do and I went to the doctor again but it was a different one and she said it’s a natural part of life now and it could last 10 years of irregular bad periods and told me my only option is the pill or IUD. I have researched both and just didn’t feel they were right. But with my daughter’s help researched vitamins and other ways to fix my hormones. I still had irregular periods more often and I was starting to get real depressed and angry I read about Progesterone cream and decided I would try it next because everything I was trying still didn’t help. I did the suggested dosage the first month and had my first regular period in a very long time. That was 3 months ago and since then I had a period every 2 weeks and then 10 days. Since April of 22 I have had 4 periods! I stumbled on this sight when I was researching the cream thinking I should stop using it too ,iand after reading a lot on the sight and found out maybe I need to increase my dosage. So I have been using 100 milligrams a day starting 5/16/2022 and so far I haven’t had a period so I’m very grateful that I found this sight and I hope that I can get more regulated. I keep reading everything here and you have said it shouldn’t stop my period. It’s hard because when you have frequent periods you want it to go away and then when it doesn’t come you worry to. In the last few years I have skipped periods as well. my longest time in between was 50 days that was when I had the 25 day period. The doctors keep claiming that anything natural won’t help so I really hope they are wrong, I’m very healthy and like everyone here just don’t think peri menopause or pre menopause should have to be like this. If you think I should be doing anything else please don’t hesitate to let me know!
