Hi everyone πŸ˜ƒ

I have been to dr today and been issued with HRT patches and progesterone tablets. I am confused with the amount of these I take, I know it's 1 per night but then it says take for 14 days and about menstrual, but i havent had a period in over 2 years so i have no idea when I am supposed to start them !

Advice greatly appreciated.

I would check with your pharmacist.

What did the chemist say @serendipity22.

From what I know, if you’re finished with your periods and have no menstrual cycle, you take 100 progesterone every evening.
Is that right?

I use oestrogen gel and progesterone 100mgs on a night, I couldn't get away with taking it by mouth but the Dr suggested taking it vaginaly which works for me
