Age 50. Had an ultrasound and endometrial biopsy last week for problems with prolonged spotting past my cycles. My periods have been moderate, but it took a full 20 days before the spotting stopped. (plus the biopsy dragged that out a little longer) I've had several late or early cycles in the past 6 months and about 3 times of the prolonged spotting. The doctor thinks low progesterone. I also think the estrogen might be low too, but I don't feel the hot flash and night sweats thing to much. I think it's because of the Topamax that I take. I'm actually cold much of the time, but my face will get bright pink. I'm pretty in tune to my cycles and I think that I might have skipped ovulation this time around.
I'm still waiting for results, and everything is pending them. The uterus looked great on ultrasound. I only have one ovary because one was removed due to a cyst about 10 years ago. I refused to discuss ablation at this point and I don't want anything to do with Depo Provera. I can count and I remember to take my meds. If anything I'm opting for the bioidentical progesterone and that's what she's planning to order if there are no cancers.
I get severe migraines, and this might have been part of the problem all along. They are down significantly by the diet. But just the last week or so I've been feeling pretty tired, losing more hair than usual, feeling somewhat more achy.
Anybody done nothing? Anybody done progesterone cream? Is there more nutritional support that I could lend to this thing?
