Hello,

Thanks for posting your query. Since you had been prescribed progesterone for your delayed periods, it looks like delaying of periods in your case was a result of hormonal imbalance. For a menstrual cycle to occur, LH / FSH (released from the pituitary gland in the brain) and estrogen

Hi I am on Primolut Nor(10mg twice daily for 10 days). My dr. put me on this pill to stop the bleeding i was experiencing every 2 weeks. Once I get my period after taking this pill, will my cycle resume to being normal again or are there chances i could contnue with this bleeding every two weeks?

doctor1 MD

Hello ,

Thanks for posting your query.

Primolut Nor is prescribed to regulate menstrual cycles and to avoid 'intermenstrual bleeding'. I suggest my patients to take the drug 10 mgm once daily for 20 days before stopping it. And if there is spotting in between periods then use two tablets every...

I had my last period on May30th - XXXXXXX 3rd.2 days after my period was over I noticed some spotting during sex. Then on the following monday I was in extreme pain in my lower back and abdomen area, also there was some spotting. I went to the Doctor and they diagnosed me with a severe bladder infection. She gave me (Cirofloxacin) and about 3 days later the pain stopped. While I was at the doctor she gave me a pregnancy test and the results were negative.I have alos taken 2 at home test and both were negative. Although I have notice a change in the size of my breast and a little weight gain. I'm also feeling bloated. I'm also spotting again today. Could I be pregnant?

Will we be able to have a baby with these odds???will changing my dietand lifestyle and taking the right vitamins be enough? what else can we do?

doctor1 MD

Hello,

Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern but the sperm analysis and progesterone levels are both not normal.

In a normal sperm analysis, the Volume over 2 cc is normal, so 7 cc is normal in your case. But if the sample has less than 20 million sperm per ml, this is...

I'm 33 my period is 8 days late. This is not normal for me. I've taken 2 HPT's and both were negative. My breasts are tingly and sore, I've been spotting off and on for 5 days. I've been having a lot of headaches lately, which is not normal for me. Is it possible that I am pregnant? I've heard of the HPT's not working if your hormone progesterone isn't high enough? I have 2 children so, this isn't too new to me.

doctor1 MD

After going through the description provided by you, I feel that the symptoms are associated with Dysfunctional Uterine Bleeding.

Sore breasts with headache goes in the favour of PMS (Premenstrual syndrome).

Pregnancy test done twice can not be wrong but to confirm...

Hello. I am 45yo, 5'10" 195lb woman with diet controlled diabetes (no meds, tho. A1C is up to 6.5 from 6.2 last fall). I am on day 20 of my period, which has been extremely heavy and showing no signs of stopping. I have had blood work showing anemia and also had a pelvic ultrasound showing uterine fibroids. Loestrin was recommended to get my bleeding stopped. I am wondering how safe it is as a 45yo non-smoking woman that has lumpy breasts and 2 previous (benign) needle biopsies from concerns from mammograms. I am researching right now trying to make sure that loestrin is the right thing for me to do. Thank you for any advice you can share.

doctor1 MD

Hello,

Thanks for the query.

Well, if you are having fibroids, then the type and size of the fibroids are important in deciding treatment. The bleeding is due to the fibroids and I am sure you are aware of it.

After reading your history, I would not advice estrogen containing pills to stop the...

I was given a 1 mg Estergen pill for hot flashes to take after bladder surgery to correct my prolapsed bladder but the doctor s assistant did not give me the Progesterone with it. I do still have my ovaries and uterius. after taking the Esterdoil for 9 months without Progesterone, I have started bleeding. I went in to see the doctor last week and he told me I should have been taking Progesterone also. So he took me off of the Estregen and gave me a Progesterone pill to take for 10 days. If I should stop bleeding on my on before I start taking the Progesterone, is it necessary to still take the Progesterone? I am dreading taking the harmone to make me have a heavy period?

Since last spring, I ve been experiencing some very, weird symptoms sometimes to the pont where I cannot function. Last spring I started experiencing stomach bloating, weakness, dizziness, muscle spasms, severe depression, anxiety, etc. I had tons of blood tests, was seen by a gastroenterologist and an endocrinologist, and a dermatologist with no answers. I ve been keeping a log of my symptoms and I ve seen a pattern here. For a long time, I was taking progesterone cream to regulate my cycle. A saliva hormone test revealed estrogen dominance and weak ovulatory cycles. This was done at age 24. I had to take the drug Clomid to get pregnant which was age 28. Delivered at age 29. I saw the endocrinologist in Feb of 2011. Hormone testing results came back normal. She told me to get off all supplements including progesterone cream and get retested in 3 months. It s been 3 months now and symptoms seem to come and go around my period. And off the progesterone cream, my cycle length seems to get longer. Current cycle length is 50 some days. Got period this Thursday and symptoms started Sunday before that Thursday. They include headaches, fatigue, muscle weakness, eye twitching and burning, numbness/tingling in arms/legs, etc, nausea, intense depressiona nd anxiety, diarrhea and constipation, and the most troubling symptom is burning, stinging, itchy skin. Where the burning and stinging occurs I get white spots in those areas. The white spots don t go away, I just get more the next cycle when the burning and stinging occur again. This is now noticeably connected to my period. When I was on the progesterone cream, it happened all month long. When i got off the progesterone cream it happens around my period. I m currently waiting to see if the symptoms disappear when my period ends, which by the way is only light brown or red discharge when i wipe after using the toilet. Have a history of having a D&C and hydrothermablation done 3 years ago. Been 5 years since giving birth to my daughter. Do you think this could be autoimmune progesterone dermatitis? Should I see an immunologist?

I went through menopause about 7-8 years ago. Shorty after I started having to take thyroid medication, and started having problems with restless legs, which has gotten much worse. I also have serious sleep problems and despite walking regularly I continue to gain weight around my middle. My cholesterol is high, and I continue to have serious hot flashes. I ve been reading about hormone replacement therapy and it sounds like I have about every symptom of progesterone deficiency. Is it too late to try it?
