I have hardly any estrogen or progesterone and the doctor is putting me on both. Should I be taking this much at first?
I am 46 years old and haven't been having many issues but when my hormones were tested my results were estrogen<25, progesterone=<60 and my Luetinizing Hormone=65.9 and FSH=61.1.
I was still having periods up until a fibroid was removed and a D&C. Once the bleeding was over from that surgery I have only had spotting for the last 8 weeks. My doctor put me on Estradiol pill for .5mg and progesterone pill for 200mg. The only issue I have had is terrible weight gain. I have always weighed around 130 and I am 5'3". I have gained 22 pounds over the last two years and its all around my stomach. I look like I did when I was pregnant. I am so worried these pills will cause me to gain more.
Should she have started me on a lower dose? Please help me.
