I need help deciding dosage for excessive menstruation.
Hi, I was wondering if you could please help me figure this out. I am 25, have PCOS, and have been on my period for 3 months straight now. I'm in desperate need of relief and I just want the bleeding to stop. I've used Pro-Gest before to stop the bleeding, about 2 years ago when this same thing happened. I've tried to use it this time but it's not stopping the bleeding. So right now I'm comparing my options and I'm thinking of either using NatPro or the medication Prometrium. I came across an article by a dr and she advised 600 mg of Prometrium for 3 months straight, every day, and then lower the dosage and use it on cycle days 12-27 for 6 months. I'd like to follow her advise and I'm wondering if I could do it using Natpro. As I understand it, Prometrium is natural progesterone, but passes through the liver and all of it doesn't get absorbed. And NatPro's absortion is faster and more efficient, have I understood that correctly? So if I want to compare it to 600 mg of prometrium, how much NatPro would I need? I hope I'm writing this clearly and you're able to understand me. Also, do you have any measuring tips to make sure you're applying the exact dosage you're intending to. I've always had trouble judging how much Progesterone cream I'm applying. I'm desperate to stop this excessive, and at times painful and heavy bleeding.
Thanks for the help!
