  • I had a similar experience with progesterone cream: excessive bleeding to the point where I couldn't safely go any where. Used the progesterone cream for 2 weeks and the following period was completely normal. That was in mid September and I haven't had a period since so I'm not sure what's going on. I also lost a little weight after using the cream. BTW my doctor wanted to use a much more expensive and invasive procedure to control the bleeding.

      Same thing here. My doc wanted to do an endometrial ablation (from what I understood, cauterizing my uterus), but since getting pregnant after that would be potentially lethal, it would mean getting my tubes tied in addition to the ablation.

      I had been using the cream successfully for a few months, so we decided to use the Mirena progesterone IUD, which has worked well with me (not so well with other people, though). When this 5-year round is up in 3 years, I'll probably just remove it and use the cream again if I have the same bleeding, but I doubt it would be as bad anyway.

      My best friend had the ablation done instead, and she was great for a few months, but it slowly came back and it was like she never had the procedure at all after about a year.
      Durp.

      • So on the topic of aging (a few posts back), I think I've hit the magic age when you feel like you own your life for the first time. I'm 30 (for a month now) and I thought I'd be upset about the loss of my youth, ect, all those other dramatic thoughts I had when I turned 25 (why it was so upsetting for me, I have no idea.) But I'm so much happier now. I feel like I OWN my life. I feel sexier, prettier, more capable, more confident. If things continue in this upward trand, I'm totally OK with getting older.

        On that topic too, I have no idea if it's my age (I hear this happens) or the way I'm eating, but my sex drive is way way higher now too. TMI maybe, but there it is

        • digital_ruse --- good for you for having such a great outlook! I'm sure it translates into how you present yourself and others can see you glowing!

          As for sex drive............ honey, you're in your PRIME! 30 is the magic number for us ladies! You'll stay pretty much where you are until the hormones start to go south at menopause. ENJOY! Hopefully there is a Mr. Ruse who will be benefiting as well!

            I'll be 30 in a few months and I hope I experience this! Decreasing stress after we move will hopefully help as well. But to hear that early 30s are a good age for sex drive is nice.

            • Yep. Generally gets better.

              You're less worried about getting pregnant. The kids are starting to leave the house (though they do come back - ask me how I know) so you can be loud or even do it in the living room! You tend to be more secure in who you are, and that makes you less shy in the bedroom (or the kitchen).

              Yeah, definitely better.

                  It's true what they say!
                  The only downside being men don't get the same increase (as far as I can tell)


                  My only concern now is that I might end up waiting too long for kids and be out of luck. But we aren't ready yet, and both agree that if it doesn't happen for us we are OK with either it just being us or adoption. Though I think I have a few more years before I really need to worry about it.

                    I couldn't imagine DH wanting sex more! With a 2 and 4yo that snuggle all day I am usuallu touched out by evening. Trying to soak in their snuggles before they don't want to be in the same room as me anymore though!

                      I totally agree, being more comfortable in your own skin is also a turn on!

                        • Ok - since we're on the subject............ when I was younger I had a very healthy sex drive. Hubby and were married at the age of 41 and 3 times a week was pretty normal. That went on until all my hormones dried up when I went head first into menopause! Now........ I might think about it during the day - but by the time bedtime rolls around I just want to go to sleep. I feel like this huge peice of my personality has gone MIA!! I talked to my doc about it she said - "yea, its really tough for a woman after menopause. Maybe try erotica?" So............ anyone else post-menopausal and suffering from NO sex drive? Its gotten just a smidgen better lately, but not enough!!
