I'm almost 39 years old and started using progesterone cream about 20 days ago due to a period that wasn't ending last month. (first time something like that happened to me)After a few days it stopped completely but I may have decreased the dosage too fast too soon as 10 days later I had some brown discharge like at the end of a period. It stopped for 2 days and this last Saturday I started what seems to be a "normal" period with heavier and more steady flow. I've read that all this can be quite normal when first starting the progesterone cream but now I must admit I feel kind of worried and anxious. I need some comfort and advice. Looking back, I realize that for the past few years, my pms has been much stronger and at times I've been out of control emotionally so I was planning using the cream for 2-3 months without a break as you suggest but now should I increase the dose to stop any bleeding for a while to give my uterus a break or should I just go see a dr.?
part of me feels like it's because I'm stressing out about it that it makes it all worse than what it should be.
I already take the vitamin D, all the amino acids and plenty of good protein sources to elevate the natural production of cysteine. I also take iodine with potassium and magnesium, selenium and some blackstrap molasses for all the other vitamins and minerals my body needs.
the actual dosage of the cream is about 220-240mg/day and am currently waiting on the Natpro cream.
thank you for your help!
