If your taking prometrium (micronized progesterone) & estradiol cream for perimenopause symptoms while still menstruating, what's the best way to take these both?

In brief: Specialist

That really requires a specialist and individual care.
If your periods are regular sometimes timing the Estradiol to your natural body and the Prometrium (micronized progesterone) to your natural period is easiest. Sometimes daily Prometrium (micronized progesterone) is easiest to try to get rid of your period. It takes a little trial and error in the perimenopause to get a good regimen for you.
