I've had 4 biopsies in 5 years, 2 sonohysterograms, D&C, Polypectomy, Hysteroscopy, Endometrial Ablation and so many ultrasounds I can't count them anymore.
My lining is showing that I'm at 6mms but, no one seems to know how much is lining and how much is scar tissue from the ablation and D&C.
I was given Provera (medroxyprogesterone) at 10mg/day for 5 1/2 months to thin the lining (all normal biopsies) from 12 mms down. I am now at 6 mms.
I am now to take Provera for 14 days every 3 months to clean out any built up lining until I reach menopause (please come soon!)
However, the Provera causes some pretty nasty side effects in terms of HEAVY bleeding, cramping, anxiety, water retention, breast tenderness, LONG period (12 days of heavy bleeding) etc. and about another month after stopping it and the heavy bleeding to feel right again. By then, I'm due for another round of it.
It has been suggested that I try Prometrium at 100mg every day (non-stop) instead to keep the lining thinned until Menopause. However, I've been reading some pretty nasty stories about it too.
This time, I want to do research as had I known then, what I know now, I never would have allowed the ablation to be done. I'd rather be safe than sorry with these meds.
Can anyone tell me if they've tried both (the Provera and the Prometrium) and which one they did better on?
Your help would be much appreciated!
