I'm 50 and using around 600ml of progesterone cream a day to manage hot flushes, insomnia and heavy periods. I slowly increased to this high dose over the past 18 months but managed to stop my problematic periods by using continuously. In the past two/three months my periods have returned, lighter tho still painful, and weight has piled on overnight. Night sweats are back. I feel this to be ED again - but why? And do you have any ideas as to how I can manage this? I have removed most stressors and have v good Vit D levels. Thank you.
