Is it enough?
Hello, I'm 42 and am I Perimennapause with irregular periods coming more frequently. While trying to lose my last 10 pounds, I went on a 1200 calorie diet for 4 months and lost my period all 4. I thought I was going into menopause but questioned if it was my diet. I took dong quai and started period 2 days later and it's been non stop. Moderate flow not too heavy. I believe I have been progesterone defeint for YEARS. I sport all of the symptoms. In the last year my irritability has been ridiculously challenging. After much review and being a plant based eater for 13 years, I decided to take bio available emerita progesterone creme twice a day 40mg total. As Dr.john lee suggests . I'm on day 5 and still bleeding. Is this enough to start? It has made me quite drowsy. I'm also taking vitex and dim for 5 days as well. Any advice would be great. Note, I did have a biopsy, Trans vaginal and abdominal ultrasound done 1.5 years ago due to my concerns of irregular bleeding and was told all tests were great and probably in Perimennapause. I'm not comfortable at all with synthetic hormones
