progestorone for irregular bleeding

Hi Daisie You live in the UK so your vitamin D is probably very low. Please have a test done, Birmingham Hospital send out test kits and the results back by email. Blood levels should be 175-250nmol/L, and not the 50nmol/L the NHS regards as adequate, even the FDA have set theirs at 75nmol/L. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. A lack of vitamin D is a most likely cause of Fibroids. Taking it certainly shrinks them, see here, here, here, here, here and here. It will also help the bleeding too, so will NAC, taurine and the bioflavonoids. There's more info on our Menstruation page. I've found 400mg/day progesterone is also needed. Cycles do become irregular in Peri-menopause, that's normal. Although it's unusual you're still bleeding as Menopause occurs at age 51 on average.
