Re: endometrial hyperplasia and progesterone
Yes, my gynecological oncologist just told me last week that progesterone, particularly with prolonged use was my impression from what she said, increases risk for stroke, heart attack, blood clots and breast cancer.
What did you end up deciding to do? I see you posted awhile ago. Let us know. Hope you're doing well.
Regular exercise breaking a sweat is very important/beneficial - women who exercise regularly have half the risk for endom. cancer.
Perhaps there is another estrogen inhibitor you can take. It's important to get on top of the hyperplasia right away, to increase your chances of being able to reverse it rather than having it progress.
