I want to take progesterone, but dr. says I don't need it

I keep wondering if I need to add a little progesterone into the mix. Right now, I'm on the Climara patch and it works well for me, however, I feel bloated and I'm still having headaches once a month. The doctor says I don't need progesterone, but I can't help wondering if it might help? I looked at some progesterone cream at the health food store, but I'm afraid to just start taking it without the doctor's approval. Sigh. Maybe I need a second opinion? Even though my doctor is highly respected in the area where I live, he's really adamant that I don't need progesterone because my uterus is gone. He's also more concerned about the "classic" menopause symptoms like hot flashes and night sweats. Don't get me wrong, I like him well enough, but the bloating is annoying and the headaches are a pain.....literally! Any suggestions?

I have been reading a book by Dr. John Lee, What your Dr. didn't tell you about menopause. He says in the book anytime you take Estrogen you need to use progesterone cream! You can read about his findings on line also.

Wow, I was reading about this Dr. John Lee. That's why I posted below about if I need progesterone. I lot of ladies have seen relief from headaches. I did not know that since I had no uterus, that I needed it. I wonder what my doctor would say. I may talk to his nurse practitioner, since she's a woman. This is very interesting to me.
