Working very hard to feel better
Hello, thanks so much for this site. It has helped me to understand so much.
In 2011 I was found to have early breast cancer or as they call it now a pre-cancer. The cancer was estrogen positive. I was not menopausal. I had a lumpectomy and started on Tamoxfin for five years. During. The five years my period stopped and horrible panic & sweats set in. I talked to any docter that would listen in hope of getting help. All fell on deaf ears! It. Be came clear that I was on my own and had to try to heal or balance myself naturally. I read every book on menapause I could find at the public library. Changed the way I ate & vitamined up...there were some periods of relief.... with the panic being something I would not wish on a enemy!
I completed the Tamoxfin November 2016. Approximately one month later (December)I started spotting....was scheduled for January for a DNC. My second in five years due to a thicking uterine lining....secondary to Tamoxfin. Everything turned out ok....but still thick. I should mention I had been using Emerita Progest cream off and on.....then a month ago became quite religious about using it twice a day with no breaks. It seemed like when I took a break the anxiety would lift its ugly head!
Well three weeks ago terrible palpitations, sore boobs, anxiety & bleeding lasted fourteen days....went to the OBGYN took a biopsy. Came back hyperplasia. Docter finally though hormones might be good to check! When they came back she said "I'm shocked that a menapausal womens estrogen would be that high" she said it should be in the twenties and I was in the one hundreds.
So the prodocol is progesterone (she says it natural) 100 mg at bedtime...two months a ultrasound then another DNC. My question would be if I take the progesterone pill can I also supplement with the cream so I can bring my progesterone levels up? This cream says it contains 450 milligrams of USP progesterone per ounce, or 20 mg per 1/4 teaspoon. Thank you so much!
