Irregular periods

by Jennifer

I started using the cream about six weeks ago. I'm 45 and always suffered from irregular periods, but this time there's only been 15 days in between, this has hapeened twice with very heavy bleeding, but only lasting max 3 days.

When I started using the cream my breasts nearly doubled in size (bit like breast feeding at the beginning). That's passed now and I'm waiting for my next period hoping it'll be more than 15 days. Do you think the cream has anything to do with this?

Secondly I have found I feel better I have more energy and feel generally good I've lost 2 kilo's, but I have noticed that my mind especially at night is very active, saying that when I do sleep I sleep well.

Irregular periods

Hi Jennifer I'm pleased you've had some benefits. The problem with your periods coming too soon is due to the progesterone, it can upset the cycle when first using it. The breasts doubling in size too. Progesterone does have a stimulatory affect initially, for more info please see here. And here.
To regulate your cycle it's best to use a 28 day cycle to begin with, your own should gradually make an appearance. Our cycles vary between 21 to 36 days, 28 being the average. You will probably have to use more progesterone too, I've found this necessary when regulating a cycle. I suggest about 200mg/day to begin with. So when you next bleed please count 14 days, then start using the cream on day 15 for the next 14 days. If you start spotting before your period it means you're progesterone level is dropping and you're not using enough. If you start bleeding the same again, in which case you will need to increase the amount of progesterone you're using for the next cycle. It might be impossible now to regulate your cycle as you're in peri-menopause when cycles do become erratic. Please see here. Take care Wray
