I need b.C. Pills only to regulate period, not to prevent pregnancy. Are progestin-only pills better than regular pills (w/ estrogen too) for women who produce too much estrogen due 2 being overweight?

The bleeding is likely gonna be worse on Progesterone only but you can do Medroxyprogesterone lat 10 days of the month if they don't come often. I will, at times give 7 days Progesterone to cause bleeding and clear uterus, the start the pill in cases like yours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Forgive my frankness: You will be told at various times by "environmentally conscious persons" that estrogens in the diet and the environment are ruining humankind and other living things, and that "phytoestrogens" are also extremely good for you. After 30 years, I'm totally unimpressed, and most of the claims have fizzled scientifically. Others here may disagree, but I say eat what you wish. ...Read more
