Never ending Peri
I have been in Perimenopause for at least 7 years, I am now 57 years old. When the peri started like so many others all was very wishy washy and nothing made sense, totally unstable menses month after month. I had 3 small ovarian cysts 2 years ago that went away after being put on oral progesterone. The heavy bleeding continued, so bad that I couldn't leave the house or even lay down to sleep at night for at least 2 full days. Had an intravaginal ultrasound to determine lining thickness and also had a snip of tissue taken from the cervix, all checked out at okay no disease. Yet nobody seemed to be able to help me get the heavy two day bleeding under control. I was directed to a wonderful woman that sat with me for about 2 hours to get the full story about me and my menses and then she put together a plan for me, which included progesterone cream and Iodine with the protocol. This plan has worked wonders for me, but now I am spotting VERY minutely and have been for 9 weeks. She can't figure this issue out and we are at a stand still as far as what more to do to usher me into permanent menopause. I have not had a severe bleeding episode since early March, so I am really happy about that, but now what? The spotting is so minute that it's not really an inconvenience but it would sure be nice to NOT be spotting either.
What makes your progesterone cream better? I will place an order for some and see if it helps at all! I just had my labs done and my FSH is 70.1, progesterone is at .23, estrodial 25.4 and testosterone is 22
In the meantime, all comments and suggestions are welcome!
