Restarting BHRT. Feel great except for swollen and painful breasts
Hello fellow travelers.
I’m 61, post-menopause for 15-10 years. Was diagnosed with osteopenia. Active. Cycling, yoga, walking, weights etc.
So, tried bhrt a couple of years ago. Loved all of it but doc would only do testosterone pellets. Got tired of a new scar on my rear end every few months. Got fed up with it all and went all natural.
Started feeling more aches and pains, joints, mood, sleep etc. so.
Went back on
Been a couple of months now but SORE breasts, up a cup size. Cannot handle the bumps on a bike.
Is this estrogen dominance? Told my doc. He increased my progesterone. Current doses are:
Estrogen estradiol .01 mg, estriol .3 mg morning, .01 and ,4 eve
Progesterone 50 mg ….. now 75mg for a week. STILL no relief
Testosterone cream 1% / 100 GMD
Soooo difficult to read doc’s handwriting.
Does this make sense to anyone?
I would REALLY appreciate some advice/help
