Customer Question

Hi,I was taking 2mg Estrace from the 1 to 25 of each month and Prometrium progesterone capsules 100mg from the 16 to 25 . I'm 54 years old and tired of having monthly period.
2 WEEKS ago I asked my GP if he could do something and he did.My new prescription
Estrace 2 mg 1tablet once daily for 30 days
Prometrium 100 mg 1 capsule once daily for 30 day.I started the prescription on March 8
My question is why I got period again and why I feel like my body is shaking ?

You still seem to have continued endogenous ovarian function. Irregular and breakthrough bleeding is less of a problem once ovarian function has ceased. Can you expain more about your body's shaking? Do you feel irritability, nervousness, or anxiety?
