I use progesterone and have used it since I was about six months post op. That doesn't necessarily mean that you need it also. Some women do, some don't. Have you spoken with your doctor about your symptoms?

Re: progestestrone cream w/ .05 vivelle patch

Wild yam cream??? Does it say "USP progesterone" ? Check the label and be sure it lists "USP Progesterone". If it doesn't say that, it is not progesterone and is unlikely to do anything for you. It is true that progesterone is made from wild yam, but if the ingredients don't list USP progesterone, it is not progesterone at all.

What causes cancer? Progesterone? Where did you hear this?

Re: progestestrone cream w/ .05 vivelle patch

No, I don't use the patch. Progesterone does not cause cancer. There is some confusion between progestin and progesterone. They are not the same. You are still fairly early post op, you may need to give the patch some more time, you may also need to up the dose, there is a .075 and a .1

Glad you have an appointment so you can discuss with your doctor.
