Peri menopausal and anaemic
I have just been diagnosed as critically anaemic. I have heavy periods during this peri-menopausal stage of life and this is exacerbating the anaemia.
A friend suggested natural progesterone and I have just started taking 1 Tsp per day. I was injected with depo-ralovera which is a progesterone hormone designed to stop periods. Despite the hormone injection, I have still had a heavy period this month. I am now told it takes up to 2 injections over a period of 6 months to stop the periods all together and thus limit loss of blood.
My question is - Can I take both the natural progesterone and continue having the injections?
What is best for me to do in order to stop the periods and heavy blood flow asap?
