In brief: 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.
