Prolonged bleeding!

by Tired of bleeding!

I am 47.

I had a normal cycle 2/7, 3/2 and then on 3/30 had what I thought was an early menses which turned out to only be 1 day of light spotting.

Then, on 4/19, had 2 days of very light spotting followed by, on 4/21 what appeared to be my real period beginning (heavier) and I am now on 5/14, still bleeding!

It has been on the heavy side and with some clotting and daily cramping on and off. The clotting seems to be abating the last week, but when I wake up in the morning, I have several smallish clots flushing out when I go to potty.

Around 2wks ago, my left breast was super tender all around, I mean even to the slightest touch - and I don't usually have this. I was also VERY irritable and moody for a week.

I have to add, after the 3/30 1 day of spotting, I used my progesterone cream for over 2 wks. I only used one pump (20mg.) once a day. It is this one: Progesterone Cream Bio-Identical USP - NO Phenoxyethanol - 3oz Bottle - All Natural Premium Fast Absorbing Fruit Extract Based Progesterone.

Please help! This is the 1st ever for this to occur!

I have to add, for my 2 youngest children I was low in progesterone during pregnancies and had to supplement with suppositories so as not to miscarry.

I am scared to death of progesterone now with this bleeding! If I skipped an ovulation in my March cycle, why am I having this bleeding after using the cream?

I began the Progesterone cream again last Thursday, but doing 2 pumps/day. Well...today I am like a rabid animal aka 'witch'!! And it's Mother's Day! =(

Thanks. I hope someone responds!

Prolonged bleeding!

I am afraid that you are not using anywhere near enough progesterone especially in the case of continual, heavy bleeding. Between 400-500mg of the correct progesterone cream is required. Progesteorne is not responsible for your heavy bleeding, but Peri-Menopause is. You are feeling like a 'rabid animal aka 'witch' because you are not using enough progesterone. I suspect that the progesterone concentration of the cream you are using is not strong enough either, even if it were, 40mg per day will most certainly make you feel like a witch as that is just enough to stimulate your estrogen receptors. Peri-Menopause also requires a women to use a lot more cream than you have been using.

This Heavy/Continual Bleeding Protocol has helped countless people. If not used as stated it will not work. Many have avoided hysterectomies because of it:

•Natpro Progesterone Cream - 400mg to 500mg/per day
•N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) - 2000mg/per day
•Taurine - 2000mg/per day
•Vitamin D3 - 5000iu's/per day more if Vitamin D3 level is low.
Vitamin D3 actually helps to shrink fibroids
•Bioflavanoids - 1000mg/per day


You are experiencing Estrogen Dominance syptoms and the incorrect amount of progesterone that you are using is making things worse for you sadly. Painful and tender breasts could mean that you are deficient in iodione, selenium or tyrosine, have you been tested for these? I always advise to rub Natpro Progesterone Cream on the tender breasts to help ease the pain. Progesterone is an excellent anti-inflammatory, so it will help you greatly. The How to use Progesterone Cream page will help you greatly. It will advise how to use it correctly and what to expect if not enough cream is being used.

What is your Vitamin D3 level? A deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone making it vital.

Please read the following pages and the references. Hopefully with the correct use of progesterone, your symptoms will clear.
