I have been under alot of stress for quite a few years. The older I am getting I think it is worse. My periods stopped several yrs ago when my mother died. I was around 48 or so. But now that I am 54 I decided to try progesterone cream, natural. I had been having symptoms of low progesterone, fatigue, facial hair, dizzyness, insomnia etc. So I started using the cream three times a day for about 5 months. NOW I am having periods MONTHLY again. I have stopped the cream for the last five or so months. Still having regular light periods. I am freaking out. I do not have insurance to see a doctor. I did see a doctor about a yr ago and had an ultrasound which showed a small cyst in left ovary and a thickening of the uterine wall. Also have hx of fibroids. I have had three d and cs over the years and wonder if that could cause some scaring or the thickening of the uterine wall. I have no other symptoms other than the bleeding every month regular. Wonder if I really had not gone thru actual menopause but had stopped periods due to all the stress I had been under? Any comments? HELP?? Now I have also heard that progesterone can build up in your system and in your fat. I am def overweight also which does not help. Just wonder if anyone is having issues like this?
