Progesterone to start postmenopausal bleeding
I'm 53 and postmenopausal, 1 1/2 years. Two weeks ago, out of the blue, I started having constant pelvic pain. Went to doctor and transvaginal ultrasound found a small polyp with thick lining around it, more than 16 mm (I can't remember exact number but ultrasound tech said it was very thick around polyp and thinner on one side but still in abnormal range). Doctor put me on oral progesterone for 12 days. After 6 doses, the cramping was much worse so he told me to stop.
It's been 2 days and still no bleeding but plenty of localized uterine pain. If I don't have a period In a few more days, he will do a D&C and take biopsies.
Has anyone experienced this? Can a period shed the polyp? Is it possible to bleed after 6 doses of Northindrone 5 mg (progesterone) after no bleeding for 1 1/2 years?
Why did the pain come on out of no where and continuue daily for now 2 weeks? Can I have endometrial cancer with pain but no bleeding?
Any help is appreciated. It's 2:00 am and the pain has kept me awake.
Thank you for reading.
