When to take progesterone when cycles are irratic?
I am two months shy of 50 years old. I started on 200mg of compounded progesterone in July. Over the past year, my cycle has been extremely irratic (shortest was 14, longest was 39 days). I was initially prescribed the progesterone from day 14-28. But my irregular cycles have made that impossible. I have gone back and forth with my doctor and she now recommends for me to take it from day 5 until I get my period. I am just looking for a second opinion/advice. Is it even possible to regulate things at this point? I am pretty sure that I am not ovulating anymore because I have always had very clear signs and those are gone. In addition, I have always suffered from menstrual migraines (before my period, after my period and at ovulation). I now have migraines often because of this hormonal rollercoster I am on. I have some hope post menopause because I did not have a single migraine while pregnant or breastfeeding (I got one 28 days after the last day I nursed both my children).
