Progesterone use

by Kelly
(Cleveland OH)

I am 47 and have a few non-symptomatic fibroids. My periods are increasingly irregular and usually last no more than a few days, perhaps a day or two of real flow and then spotting for the rest of the time. My goal is to make it to menopause without surgery. I was having hot flashes and night sweats that were out of control, but started taking 400mg of magesium in 200mg doses- one at breakfast, one at dinner and the hot flashes are just about gone and I am much calmer and able to sleep at night.

Would progesterone be of any help in my case as the fibroids do not appear to be causing any issues?
