Question: I am diagnosed with premature menopause last February. I am 36 and have a 2 year old son. I am now using Proglyton tablets. My doctor said that my chances of getting pregnant is almost zero and even IVF is not an option as the number of eggs is very Low. Is this (to use proglyton for many years and give up on having a second child) the only option? How about the side effects of proglyton?

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Are your AMH ( anti mullerian levels ) measured , or even your FSH and LH levels ?
Please let me know the values, as without these hormones, it is not right to put you in the diagnosis of premature menopause.
But if the hormonal levels DO point to premature menopause, then yes, the only option is to use artificial hormone replacement therapy ( in your case - proglyton ) and to consider donor eggs for having a next child.
Side effects of hormone therapy are cumulative, over many years, and even then, recent studies have shown that the benefits ( good bone health, good cardiac health ) outweight possible risks.
Unless you have ominous risk factors such as hypertensive, history of stroke or thrombosis, smoking, obesity , diabetes, malignancies ?
Is this the case ?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care.

I am 51 years old. My estrogen and hormone levels are almost at zero. my doctor started me on EEMT DS 1.2/2.5 mg and provera 2.5 mg. It has been over 3 weeks and I do not feel any different. I am scheduled in 2 weeks to take another blood test to check the levels, but feel so weak, depressed and lifeless. Is it possible that I may need stronger or a different hormone therapy
