I am a 49 years old woman and now menopause. I have used progesterone cream for many years, a total of 4 years. Now I have been out of menses for 2 years.
I'm very tired because I did not sleep well. I have severe bouts of sweat and hot waves through the night and wake me 100 times a night. I've lost a lot weight during the past 3-4 months in total 6-7kg. I am 168cm tall and my weight is now 53kg. I have not been on any kind of diet, and I eat as normal as it is now. My weight has not changed about 20 years. But now, suddenly!! Nothing special is not happening in my life maybe the normal stress at work, but nothing special just now..
In addition to I have a cold very often, even though clothed warmly. My hands and feet are always cold. Today, my hands are uncomfortably clammy, moist. Urination has increased.
I have followed the instructions Wray´s progesterone cream of increased stress situation. I have for the past month increased the use of the cream a lot. At night, when I wake up whenever I add the cream, but it does not have any effect on hot flushes and sweating. When I Adding cream my night sleep has not improved at all. Unfortunately, it does not help!! 1 cream tube ends at 4 to 5 days after use. Should I use the cream more??
Now I'm really at a loss ?? What should I do?
I went to the doctor and he recommended that estriol named Ovestin 1mg.
In the past, when I started using the cream, I had a clear estrogen dominance.
But the problems stopped when I started to use the cream. Now they are back worse than ever !! I did not manage any more of my life to continue because of fatigue and forgetfulness.
Could now be the case progesterone dominance? Should I start using the prescribed estrogen or natural estrogen?
I need quick help, and I am confident that you answer me very soon, please !!! (Sorry for my bad english)
