Hi please can anyone advise..I've been using Oestrogel 2 or 3 pumps per day and Utrogestan days 15-26 for about 18 months. I still bleed every month but 2 weeks after last month's period I also bled vert heavily for a few days. My periods have also been extremely painful for the last few months, almost like contractions. My GP sent me for internal scan which was normal so I'm now wondering what to do.
Should I request blood tests to check hormone levels?
I'm 52 and my periods haven't stopped yet..is this because I take Utrogestan in second half of cycle?
Should I try a different HRT? I heard recently that not everyone absorbs Oestrogel. What are the best alternatives?
