Re: what to do if you get period on bioidentical hormones

Can you tell us more?
Are you on HRT because of a hysterectomy or...?
I know of a woman who experienced light "periods" after having a hysterectomy. She has been tested for numerous conditions.
You may have a complex endocrine problem---definitely tell your doctor and get some tests done.

Re: what to do if you get period on bioidentical hormones

Pituitary, adrenal diseases, and more.
I've suffered from primary hypothyroidism, from Hashimoto's, for years--but continued to get sicker and sicker...had to do lots of research to find out that my primary hypothyroidism had become secondary hypothyroidism: my pituitary was not working correctly due to a tumor.
I had one doctor who told me that I could only mention two symptoms for her to deal with---well, I had multiple symptoms affecting multiple systems---vision, metabolism, gastro, sleep, orthopedic, psychiatric,etc...

My symptoms went beyond what other hypothyroid sufferers were going through---I started contacting people I knew who had been diagnosed with problems like mine---and I found they weren't suffering the debilitating problems I was dealing with all alone.

I ended up doing a bunch of research on my own---'cause no one else was bothering with me---and I found help.
