I'm 54 and haven't had any real significant menopause issues... except for prolonged, excessive bleeding that has crept up on me this last year and got bad the last 3 months or so. I thought I'd be done bleeding at my age, but it's like my body doubled down and has been pitching a hissy fit.
So I started on natural progesterone cream about 10 days ago, and I'm taking 3 weeks to ramp up to the required dose. I feel good... except... I worry that I'm weird.
Weird because.....Yesterday my body started throwing out these huge, and I mean massive clots like I've never seen before, and weirdly, it feels like a physical relief. Is that weird?? I expected to feel worse for a while before feeling better, as the estrogen receptors up-regulate due to the progesterone, so the bleeding doesn't worry me right now. I don't have any cramping or serious PMS-- I actually feel a lot better than I have in a long time.
Meanwhile, over the last year or so, it felt like my uterus had become spongy and swollen, and "gummed up" so to speak, and the only thought I have when passing these big clots is "oh thank God. Whew. Relief." Is that weird?
Any similar experiences?
