hyperplasia and luckily it's benign. My period is still regular after the biopsy. My doctor prescribed provera to stop my menstruation completely. Should I take it and completely stop my menstruation or just leave it till it stops on it's own. I thought that it's great that I still produce estrogen and still look young. Will it deplete my estrogen and look older faster?
Hi buddhagirl! Nice to meet you! Welcome! :)
I'm going through a similar experience. I'm 55 & have been menopausal for over 3 years. I've been having uterine bleeding since July. I had a transvaginal ultrasound performed in August & the results showed a thickening of the endometrium. No cancer was detected.
buddhagirl, if you type in Provera in the search bar at the top of this page, you'll be able to read about this medication & peruse some users' reviews. Side effects are also written about.
Please relay your questions & concerns to your doctor. He/she should be able to illustrate pros vs. cons with Provera. Why does the doctor want to put you into menopause? What are the advantages?
I, myself, haven't used Provera as of yet, however, I believe that this question could be of a more personal nature as opposed to strictly medical. Just going by what you have written, without knowing all details or extra information, I suggest to you to let nature run its course. I wouldn't take these pills unless I was suffering or greatly inconvenienced when I had a period.
