#1: Perimenopause and Hormone Therapy
My Dr. has put me on estrogen(Estradiol) and progesterone(Medroxyprogesterone) for perimenopause symptoms. I get mood swings, bloating, fatigue and constipation. Never get hot flashes but the others combined can really get me down. They seemed to be getting worse so I finally agreed to try the pills. I'm interested if others have had any success with this combination and how long did it take to work? So far,(6 weeks)I don't feel any great improvement, in fact I feel a little more depressed. The estrogen seems to be targeted to women with hot flashes and since I don't get those I'm wondering exactly what I'm taking this for. I'm wondering if I haven't given it enough of a chance.
