seeking relief from heavy periods
I have started taking Progesterone in the hope of achieving less bleeding & clotting. I am 51 years old and my periods have gotten worse. My doctor has recommended the Wiley Protocol, so I am taking estrogen as well. I am told that as long as I am on WP, I will continue to have periods, but that the method will protect me from age related disease. Last month, I tried NATPRO and my period was much improved. However, because it doesn't come with a measurer, I was unsure how much to apply. I also found the instructions a little confusing, so I went back to WP and gradually lessened the amount of Progesterone but experienced breast tenderness. I once again increased the dosage and applied it directly to my breasts and the soreness got worse so I decreased it again. This month, my period is back to heavy again so I have again increased the Progesterone on day 5 in the hope of stopping it. The subject of heavy periods is not addressed much. My questions are: Should I continue taking estrogen while trying to overcome estrogen dominance since I am also low in estrogen? May I continuously take Progesterone until my periods become more manageable and my breasts less tender? I have reordered NATPRO. I hope there is someone who can tell me from experience how to use it to stop both breast tenderness and heaving bleeding. Thanks.
