Progesterone and endometriosis, increasing amount of cream
Hi Wray. First of all thank you for your website that is very interesting and helpful.
I have been suffering from endometriosis for years and started using progesterone cream 8 months ago. I have been using 40 mg a day from day 12 to day 26 and I have to admit this gave excellent results. My periods are now totaly painfree, PMS almost gone and no more heavy bleeding.
Nevertheless a naturopath advised I should increase the amount of cream I use, because this is better for women with endometriosis. So this month I used it from day 5 to day 26 and increased the amount to 60 mg a day. My periods came last week and were painfree again, the PMS is totally gone with no more headaches nor water retention etc but something odd happened. Usually my periods last 5 days and this time it was 8 days. On day 5 the bleeding was very light then I started bleeding again during 3 more days; not heavy bleeding at all but a normal flow with some clots on day 8. And once again no pain at all.
I read what you say about the progesterone cleasing the uterus out, so could it possibly be what happened with me since I increased the amount of cream ?
Thanks for your help.
