Thought I was in Menopause

I thought I was in post menopause. I have not had a period in a year and 5 months. All of a sudden I started getting pre-period symptoms and sure enough I am bleeding again. I have been using progesterone cream for years, ever since I started going through peri-menopause and it really helped. I had continuous, very heavy bleeding back then and it took a while to get it under control. I used the cream every two hours all day long for several months then slowly decreased over time. Once I was in menopause (or thought I was) I was able to cut back to twice a day and actually take 10 days off during the month. (I couldn't do that before). Now all of a sudden after almost a year and a half I start this bleeding again, and its not just spotting. Its very depressing and annoying. Thought I was done with all of this. We eat very healthy, no processed sugar, or other processed foods. We eat very clean. Not sure what to do.

I think the problem is that you are taking the 10 day break. You should use it everyday without a break. When you take the 10 days off, I think the drop in progesterone is triggering a period.
