Progesterone helps with metallic taste in mouth
I developed a metallic taste in my mouth - really really horrible. Got checked and tested for all sorts of things but nothing showed up.
I had been using progesterone cream for quite a few years to help with breast tenderness, but as I was entering peri-menopause the breast tenderness had improved heaps so I was using a lot less progesterone.
After extensive Googling for "metallic taste in mouth" I finally found a reference to metallic taste in pregnancy and that was when I thought that it may be related to the hormone changes in menoupause.
I increased my progesterone dose significantly and it made a huge difference. I use 8% cream and quite a lot of it, so the dose I need to reduce the metallic taste is quite high
Thanks heaps for this website, which gave me the confidence to keep using such high doses and to not have a break each month. The metallic tase is so awful even after one day of not using the cream, that I really didn't want to have to have a break from it.
