Hi, I am 55, and my periods stopped at age 51. I had an easy time of it all and was really lucky throughout my reproductive life.
I am currently experiencing though, a lot of sleep issues, some anxiety, and sometimes heart palpitations. I also gained 20 lbs very quickly once my periods stopped, which I still have.
I am active, healthy, eat well, not on any medications.
I have tried progesterone - orally - had a return of migraines, a lot of anxiety and sleeplessness worse than ever!! I stopped immediately - was on 100mg and after reading through things I see that I needed to persist or increase the dosage.
I am a bit nervous honestly to take more - but could really use some support and suggestions.
