Non-Stop Bleeding-Almost Three Months
(Grand Rapids, MI )
I am a 60 yr. old woman who has used hormone pellets for a long time.
All of a sudden I started bleeding .. and have been bleeding almost non-stop for three months.
I discovered that the progesterone I was using (vaginally) was not dissolving, consequently I'm sure I was not getting what I needed. Also, I do know that I have fibroids. Those could have grown during the time that my progesterone levels dropped. I'm about 90% sure that it's the fibroids that are causing my bleeding.
Fast forward to now, just this past weekend I finally picked up (from compounding pharmacy) a very dissolvable vaginal capsule. I have been inserting 400 mgs each night, beginning last Saturday. I am hoping the 400 mgs will take care of this issue, but, I'm wondering how long it might take? And what if the bleeding isn't effected by the progesterone, should I try to stop? (I am wondering if I am putting too much progesterone into my body, since I have been taking it in some way, shape or form constantly since January)
I would appreciate any feedback and thoughts about my situation.
