I am 46 and began perimenopause 2 years ago. I am taking progesterone and my periods are irregular and consist mostly of spotting for a day or two. I am having a problem with severe nausea and fatigue that starts a week before I have a period and goes away immediately after the period starts. I take Nexium every day for a hiatal hernia. I have taken Zantac while the nausea is happening and it helps just a little. I just returned from vacation, and I lost a whole day during our trip due to nausea. What can I do for this?View Thread
I am 45 years old and stopped taking birth control pills a year and half ago. My periods have been coming about a week and a half apart, and my doctor put me on progesterone and has scheduled me for a saline sonohystogram. She also told me I have a stenotic cervix. I have never been pregnant, and all of my pap smears have been normal. I have a strong family history of fibroids. Will this make this test more difficult?View Thread
