Micronor For Perimenopause Symptoms
Taking ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) for perimenopause symptoms for 3 months, having headaches, insomnia, night sweats, is 0.35 mcg of estrogen too much for me?
Doubtful: You could go down but consider that hormone fluctuations are the biggest cause of problems are yours are steady, did the problems worsen after starting the pill. That pill has that dose of estrogen for about 7 days. To you clinch your teeth at night? Do you have anxiety? You may need to treat this directly. Clonazepam 1-2 mg a couple of nights per week can be a lifesaver if ur sleep deprived. ...Read more
Took prometrium (micronized progesterone) for 6 weeks straight for perimenopause symptoms, left me with symptoms of estrogen dominance. ?
Other reasons: The menopause transition is a highly specialized treatment area. Hormones changes are very common and fluctuations very high. There are also a lot of misconceptions about what to treat. Estrogen can vary from very low to very high amounts over just a few days. It really requires a specialist to guide someone through it. Prometrium (micronized progesterone) will not affect estrogen levels generally at all. ...Read more
Which pill is better for treating my perimenopause symptoms? Levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) or Femme tab?

Your obgyn can guide you to determine if you are better served by an oral contraceptive or by a hormone replacement product designed for menopause.

45 yr old female began ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) for perimenopause, ex-
periencing hypothyroid symptoms,
will ortho cause symptoms to
worsen or improve?
Not sure.: Not sure what you mean by hypothyroid symptoms. There may be some overlap in symptoms with perimenopause and hypothyroid, but not a lot. Ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) may alleviate your perimenopausal symptoms but will have absolutely no effect on any symptoms produced by lack of thyroid hormone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
45 yr old female taking ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) for perimenopaus. Family history of
hypothyroidism, experiencing symptoms, TSH 3.0 will gugglesterones help?
Maybe not..: You likely are hypothyroid. Ideally try to search for cause. Full thyroid panel for you needs to include reverse t3, (liothyronine) free t3, (liothyronine) tpo's etc. Especially with family history, must check thyroid antibodies. Rule out gluten sensitivity via enterolabs, detox and cleanse. Check heavy metal load with random urine pre and post challenge heavy metals. ...Read more

I am on ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) for the
past 3 months for perimenopause
On ortho tri cyclen (ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate) for perimenopause symptoms, two months in and still having bad night sweats. Could night sweats be from
46, on no meds, perimenapuasal, with uterus, beginning estrasorb & prometrium (micronized progesterone). Should I use them both daily for best relief of menopausal symptoms?
Follow the Rx!: The estrogen cream is usually used every day for relief of such symptoms as hot flashes. Progesterone pills (such as prometrium) do not relieve symptoms. They are often used for only part of the month (most often 12-14 days) just to protect the lining of the uterus from too much stimulation from the estrogen. Estrogen alone can cause excess thickening of the lining or even polyps or cancers. ...Read more
Dose levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) ED have a higher progesterone than other contraceptive pills i'm looking for a bc pill that will help with mood swings what's most common?
Any birth control: Pill can help with mood swings. In my experience, there isn't a particular pill that is better than any other. However each pill can have a different effect on an individual woman. Try and see what happens. Often mood swings are related to the Progesterone in the pill. So if one pill doesn't help i will prescribe another bcp with a different progesterone. Levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) has potent progesterone. ...Read more
40yr female with regular 26 day cycle started using estrogen patch (vivelle (estradiol) 0.025) for severe pmdd. No period since (2 months). Is est. The cause ?
May be: Why use vivelle (estradiol) for pmdd? You can use a very low dose 10 micrgram birth control pills and had an added benefit of preventing pregnancy since your period is still regular and still needs protection. The other possibility is, of course menopause. Check your fsh after several days off the patch. ...Read more
Depo provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 14 yrs. Controlled hypothyroid for 5yrs. I've had night sweats for 9 mos. Peri menopause?Depo?Ddx?No other symptoms.
Night sweats: Night sweats usually begin with the decline of Progesterone in peri-menopause.

It helps: The lining of the uterus to stabilize, so the bleeding usually stops while a woman is taking the tablets daily. Once a woman stops the Progesterone that signals the lining of the uterus to shed. So usually 2-5 days after stopping the medication the period starts. After a cycle or two the periods become shorter lighter and regular. Taking Progesterone cyclically helps the period to be regular. ...Read more
