Progesterone v progestin - to keep uterine ca away!

Mindy,

I agree that you need to talk to your OB again and describe how much better you feel off of it. Perhaps there is another form of progesterone that you can use that will help your treatment without the bad symptoms. Each of us responds differantly, but your Dr. can help you find what is best for you.

Progesterone v progestin - to keep uterine ca away!

I am taking Megace 240 mg/day as treatment for endometrial cancer. I've been taking it for 5 months and I had horrible side effects initially (severe fatigue, water retention, mood swings) but they subsided after about a month. Now I seem to be doing fine with it. It does sometimes cause spotting (obviously not an issue when you don't have a uterus) which really scared me when it first happened because that was what made me seek care in the first place but my gyn-onc assures me it is quite normal. It seems to be doing its job as my last endometrial biopsy was "inconclusive" for cancer. We'll see what the results are from yesterday's D&C.

Good luck and I hope you find something you are comfortable with and that works for you.
