I'm 51 years old, night sweats and hot flashes have begun, and I'm barely having a period anymore (I went 6 months without one and then had one 2 months ago and not one since). I am not sleeping well, though this has been an ongoing issue for MANY years, and I'm tired ALL THE TIME, with low energy. I do not feel well most of the time because of this and have to push through my days. I rely on caffeine to get me moving and sustain me all morning. I am healthy, not overweight, exercise, and try to eat well. All my bloodwork is near perfect, though I have not had bloodwork on hormones, which I've heard isn't accurate anyway. I am so tired of feeling like this and I want to at least feel "well" and have energy and enjoy life! I'm starting to feel depressed, especially since it's winter. My OB just put me on bio-identical oral progesterone yesterday (200mg) to take before bed because he says the oral progesterone also helps with sleep. I stumbled across this website and though I would ask of taking this oral dosage is recommended? Thank you.
