I have had great luck with progesterone cream.
I am currently in perimenopause and have estrogen dominance. My doc recommended a higher dose than the package suggested to help control my endless periods.
Once they are moderated, we will reduce the dose gradually.
He said it is better to start with the dose that is thought will control the symptoms and then gradually reduce it rather than the other way around because of the fact that progesterone when you start it up or increase it you activate the estrogen receptors and temporary you might become worse before you get better. So instead of enduring that several times, he started with what he called a loading dose to try to restore my balance and then we will work backward.
I used to have hot flushes, anxiety, joint pain, night sweats and weird little panics - no more. They are gone, gone, gone and my continued bleeding is also abating.
I suggest reading up about it, doing a saliva test and even asking a doctor who is informed about bioidentical hormones for a recommendation,
Good luck to you!
