I am 43 years old and have been plagued with ovarian cysts for almost 3 years. Of late I cycle has gottten irregular and i continue to bleed/brownish discharge between my period. As one can imagine this is making me loose confidence, feel inadequate, and refrain from physical intimacy. My doc has prescribed progestrone tablets for 3 months. I dont know whether this is really gonna help. Have met several docs but no one is able to tell me for sure, how and wen this will get sorted out. Am exhausted emotionally and feel depressed too.
Try taking it for atleast 5 days and see whether or not you see a change. When women have brownish discharge it's our bodys way of getting bad bacteria out and then we have our regular period. Just because it comes between periods may mean that your body may have more unhealthy bacteria. Which that medicine may treat. Believe it or not it's very common.
Can you tell me if it helped?
I have been prescribed the same thing for the same reasons (sans the ovarian cysts -- I have never been told that I have them; fiberoids..I have).
My doc said that it was a 'clinical DNC'.. but I wonder if it is working right. I am not sure what to expect.
Its not uncommon to have that kind of discharge in-between cycles, I think we as women are made to think that we have to not have any problems like that or something is wrong with us. I have this too from time to time, the Progestrone I know is used to help with heavy bleeding so it may help in your case give it a try and it doesn't work let your doctor know so he/she can figure something else out.
