Progesterone

I am interested to know how people cope with the 200mg utrogestan regime as I am really struggling with the effects of the progesterone. I tried a conti regime but I bled heavily.

    I'm about to embark on this starting from Saturday.  I can't remember the dosage now I've been prescribed but it's interesting that you're struggling with it.  I hadn't heard about side effects.  Are you able to change it.  What side effects have you had.  Sorry to be ignorant...what's the conti regime?

    Headaches, sore breast, insomnia mainly - conti is continuous so you take oestrogen & utrogestan all month (100mg not 200mg) but you can only do this if you have not had a period for 12 months or are over 54. I'm not sure what to do for the best at the moment - it's frustrating trying to get the right regime
  • @TeachergirlI had itching and headaches and couldn't sleep. I agree, it's really frustrating.
