Re: Progesterone Continuous
I have a similar question. I started having nearly continuous bleeding 2 years ago while on the Pill, and finally ended up on depo provera which is a progesterone. I almost never bleed now which is great, but I wonder what it will do to menopause. I'm 48.
I was also diagnosed as hypertensive when I went to the doctor for the bleeding, so have been dealing with blood pressure meds as well.
I very occasionally feel warm and slightly flushed (most of the time I am cold), sometimes for no apparent reason my heartrate is rapid, sometimes I feel anxious also for no reason, and I can't sleep worth crap. My father couldn't sleep, and one of my brothers is an insomniac, so I figured I'd inherited that, although I used to be able to sleep. My mother had trouble with anxiety and depression, so I figured I had some of that, although again I didn't used to be anxious. The flushing and palpatations and rapid pulse I atributed to bp meds, but maybe all these things are related to menopause? I don't have sisters and my mother is dead, as are all my aunts, so I don't have any female relatives to ask.
