Simple hyperplasia without atypia
(new orleans, la)
I am 55 years old and developed prolonged menstrual bleeding. My Dr. did a uterine biopsy which came back as simple hyperplasia. She started me on progesterone pills 100 mg daily. This dose somewhat controlled it but I was having breakthrough bleeding. So I increased the progesterone (on my own) to 100mg twice daily. This has controlled it so far. I will have a repeat biopsy done in May. How long can I safely stay on progesterone and at what dose? Do you have any recommendations for me?? My Dr. did not want to increase the dose for some reason.
