(Mesa, Arizona, US)
I have had two ultrasounds since. one last July, and one in March, 2012. Each one showed a hyperplasia of the endometrium. I am 62 and post menopausal. I have been taking the micronized progeterone, 100 mg per day, and estratest 1.25/2.5. I assume the high dose is for osteopenia.
In July, my endomtrium measured 6.5 mm, and in March, it was 7.8. My progesterone prescription was doubled to 200 mg per day, back in July my estratest dosage remained the same.
For some time, I have wondered if the estratest dosage was too high.
I have slight vaginal pinkish discharge every few months, mostly when under undue stress. My father passed away recently and I am a disaster responder for my work.
My marriage has been trouble for a long time.
I also have a "seasonal" Spring vasculitis of the lower extremities and treated with a relatively high dose of prednisone, no longer, but on Dapsone and Cholchicine. No autoimmune disorder has been found
In two days, I go in for a D & C and hysteroscopy, and obviously I'm very frightened due to my age and hyperplasia. No fibroids or polyps were seen. I'm not only anxious, I am in a panic state. :(.
I realize now I have to be my own advocate. If the estratest is too high a dose for me, I'm a small person, I wonder what the proper ratio is for progesterone and estrogen.
If the biopsies are okay, what do you propose as a course of treatment?
