Been on Premarin HRT for 2 weeks Estrogen only. Read "unlikely to have a monthly period" unless taking Progesterone too. Doc did not prescribe Progesterone as well.. a bit worried?

Surely you are having HRT in the post-menopausal setting? Why would you either want or expect to have a period, or am I reading this wrong?

Progesterone has specific functions, such as protecting an embryo / foetus during early pregnancy. I would imagine your GP has not prescribed it as it has no role to play.

Prescribed due to Peri Menopause flushes etc but still have erratic periods..
Ah right. Norethisterone is a synthetic version of Progesterone and has been prescribed for hot flushes.

Some people find herbal supplements useful too, such as red clover or black cohosh.
Have you had a hysterectomy? If so, then you don't need a progesterone with HRT.
If you haven't had your uterus removed then it would be beneficial if a progesterone is given.
I assume you HRT has been prescribed for menopausal symptoms?

Tried everything herbal nothing helped. Hot flushes stopped on day 2 of taking Premarin 0.625. Just a bit concerned about no monthly bleed expected unless prescribed Progesterone as well..

No hysterectomy a sad...still have erratic periods

Meant sqad not so sad !
Sorry..we cross posted......you haven,t had a hysterectomy, then a progesterone should have been prescribed.

I am thinking of stopping it actually..side effects of upset stomach morning sickness feeling all day and extremely dry mouth.. do I have to gradually stop them?
No. Just stop them straight away.
Question Author
Ok will do. Thanks for your advice.
I am not going to post a link as its very upsetting but I wouldn’t take premarin because of how it is produced.

I know Wolfgang...to do with horses :-((
There are some good but expensive synthetics I used one on ethical grounds, some come as a double pack with both oestrogen and progesterone in.
