HollyDay Posted August 12, 2012 Share Posted August 12, 2012 I am so tired of perimenopause. My cycles are all.over.the.place. I just started again on day 17. Before that was a nice day 29 start that was nice and smooth. Before that was 23 days. Before that was 72. Ugh...... I'm 50 and on a VERY low dose of bio-identical estrogen and progesterone. The doc said the dose was way too low to regulate my cycles but it is affective for preventing migraines, insomnia, anxiety, etc.,etc.,etc. It has improved my quality of life but not my cycles. Last month we ran a bunch of labs and all are within range (many smack in the middle of range) except testosterone which was low. We added a very low dose in hopes of improving energy. In the past 3 years I've had several ultrasounds, a biopsy, paps, and exams. The very good news is that they are all perfectly normal. In other words, I'm normal for my age and stage, but my period is crazy! All my IRL gfs are either way too young (still having babies) or didn't have any trouble at all entering menopause. I could use some perspective, sympathy, empathy, and suggestions........... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
