20 mg of Progesterone

Hi,

I'm new here so please forgive me if this question has been asked numerous times. First of all, I had my LAVH 1 1/2 years ago - uterus and cervix taken out and kept ovaries. According to bloodwork I'm not in menopause yet. My doctor has put me on 20 mg. of Progesterone (a cream) to alleviate some very annoying symptoms. I apply it once daily and I've been on it two weeks.

My question is this - can symptoms of menopause such as fatigue, sore breasts, insomnia, skin problems, night sweats actually get worse when first starting this treatment? I'm having night sweats every night, very tender breasts, my face is breaking out, etc. Have any of you been on this medication, and if so what kinds of reactions have you had? Any comments are greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

Re: 20 mg of Progesterone

You might have to give the new treatment time for your body to adjust and then see if it is helping. I would think after a couple of weeks you should see some signs of improvement. Progesterone does not always work for everyone. I did not see much improvement when I used it and had my ovaries. I was using it for hot flashes and it really did not help me. I also found it made me tired and depressed.

Hopefully someone will come along with more experience with using progesterone and having ovaries.

Hang in there
