in 2019 I had an ablation…I was mid 40’s and just so tired of bleeding so heavy every month and wasn’t planning on more kids. It didn’t work. Then my gyno said he could put me on progesterone pills and they were like magic. My period was so much lighter, I almost just didn’t have one. Then my perimenopause symptoms started to get worse. Worse night sweats, mood swings, hot flashes, weight gain, insomnia, and a plethora of others so I finally asked about HRT.

I’m on a combo progesterone and testosterone HRT. It does ok. I think I need adjustments and some estrogen added in though when my hormones were tested my estrogen was really high so IDK. That doctor retired and I’m struggling to find one as good as he was. He didn’t jump on the bc pill bandwagon that so many others do. I would have refused anyway but still. It’s so hard to find a good gyno now that I’m done having babies. That seems to be all they focus on, well that and the birth control pill bandwagon.
