Progesterone causing polymenorrhea?
I've been on progesterone cream due to self-diagnosed estrogen-dominance systems (inability to lose weight, acne, fatigue, insomnia, etc).
I had been to numerous doctors prior to this step but they all told me that my hormones were "within the normal range" and that my issues were not hormone related. Anyways, I originally started out with a low 20 mg cream, and eventually upped it to a 100 mg cream (taking twice a day, so 200 mg).
It has been causing my period to come early (I'm in my late 30s and not in perimenopause per the docs) so per the forums I have been taking it daily in the hopes that progesterone eventually becomes the dominant hormone and my cycle evens out. Well, it hasn't. I've been on 200 mg daily for almost 5 months and I've been getting my period just about every 17 days.
I don't know what to do - stop the cream? Lower the dose?
