Customer Question
Hi Dr. ***** *****...

Hi Dr. ***** *****, I am a physician, who is in perimenopause, My periods had become fairly heavy over the last few years. I also have a uterine fibroid which I elected to watch. Around 6 months ago, I stopped having periods, but then on Jan 2 it restarted, and did not stop for 2 weeks, very heavy. So I started prometrium 200 mg to 300 mg q hs and medroxyprogesterone 10 mg. I am still having spotting and just feel ick on the hormones. I had an endometrial biopsy a few days ago, and the doc recommended indefinite therapy until menopause with noethindrone. What are your thoughts. I have a business trip scheduled in Europe, so heavy bleeding will be bad. Should I try to come off it. When my cycles were rregular the bleeding never lasted more than 8 to 9 days

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

It could be endometrial hyperplasia or endometrial cancer. You should continue to take norethindrone which is a progesterone pill. If it is endometrial hyperplasia. it could treat endometrial hyperplasia.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
