Climara Pro and Continuous Bleeding
Hello, I"m 53 years old and stopped having periods in January of this year. I had one more in March, but none in April or May. My son was getting married on June 6th and my hot flashes were making me miserable. About 5 days before the wedding I requested from my Dr some HRT so I wouldn't be sweating and miserable at his Summer outside Wedding. She prescribed Climara Pro patch. It did the trick, very little sweating after that. I also have osteoporosis so I thought I could benefit from the patch for my bone's sake as well.
So I was on it for about a week and then my period started, It was a normal period, but it surprised me because I didn't think I would have a period while on the patch.
I had another period about 3 weeks later, very heavy, complete with clots and lots of pain. My Doctor required that I come in and talk to her about Climara and how it's working for me before she would renew my Climara prescription. I told her I had started my period after a week of being on the patch and she acted somewhat surprised. She renewed my prescription and when I went to get it filled, my pharmacy was out of them until the next late afternoon. The next day I had a horrible migraine and didnt go get my prescription until the following day. I was with out my patch for just a day and a half and had only been off my period for about 2 days. After I put my new patch on my period started the next day and I've been on it ever since, 3 weeks. It will start to wind down like I'm going off of it and then it starts all over again with cramps, heavy bleeding and clots. I'm also extremely sleepy and achey.
I called my dr and she couldn't get me in for 5 days, which is this coming Wednesday.
Has anyone else had this experience or something similar? Anyone have any idea what's could be going on?
Thank you in advance for any ideas.
