I am scared to use Progerterone therapy
by Scared in Oregon
I have been diagnosed with endometrial hyperplasia. The recommended treatment is medroxyprogesterone generic for provera.
I am post menopausal for 6 years. I do not want my period to come back, I don't have excessive bleeding, I had some spotting and a clear dishcarge... not itching or anything.
I have had 3 biopsies.They want me to take progerterone for 3 months (21 days on then get period 5 days later start again). I had a pulmonary embalism at a young age so I have never been on any type of hormones... i.c. birthcontrol or anything.
I am afraid of the side effects, I have told my concerns to my Dr. and she says this is the best therapy and hysterectomy is too invasive and dangerous. Is this an insurance thing?
