HRT question

LottywilliamsLottywilliams Posts: 2

Hi there, after having a range of blood tests I was recommended to take 1 x Utrogestan 100 tablet a day even though I already have the mirena coil fitted. I also have Estradot for the Estrogen. Is it not a little too much taking the extra progesterone as well as the mirena coil as I feel that I have the symptoms of too much progesterone in my body (such as sore breasts, slightly swollen tummy and having that pre-menstrual feeling that I thought was behind me now). Can anyone advise? Many thanks.

    Hi @Lottywilliams

    It's nice to see you here.

    I'm on oestrogen only HRT, but I certainly recognise the sore breasts, bloating and PMT symptoms. I had exactly those symptoms for 5 or 6 weeks before they settled down.

    Is the introduction of Utrogestan a recent thing? If so, it might just be a settling in period, and those symptoms will disappear in a few weeks.

    As always though, if you are concerned and have questions about any medical treatment you are receiving, we would recommend speaking to your GP for some reassurance.

    Hi Kaz, yes the utrogestan is recent & I was quite surprised to need it as well as the Mirena coil. I will check with doctor again as it’s not really suiting me and I’m not sure it’s entirely necessary. Thanks
