Perimenopausal migraines and heavy bleeding during period
I just turned 52 years old and I still have a menstrual cycle every 26-28 days (lasting 4-5 days). I am using Emerita Phytoestrogen Cream and Emerita Progesterone cream for the following symptoms:
Migraines towards the end of my period (days 4-5)
Heavy menstrual bleeding with clots
I feel myself ovulate almost every month (for the past year) around days 11-14, however, I'm not sure why I have heavy menstrual bleeding. My questions are:
1. Should I use progesterone cream every day of the month through my period? (Shouldn't there be a break as recommended so al the lining of the uterus is shed?).
2. Are the migraines during menstruation due to low estrogen?
3. How much progesterone should I use daily? I noticed I get really warm and drowsy if I apply more than 60 mg.
