I am 65 and have been taking bioidentical estrogen and progesterone for 2 years. In 2/2013, I started T.S. Wiley protocal for bio-identicals. After 3 weeks, I started cramping and in 7 weeks the cramps became unbearable. My Ob-gyn said my cervix was shut tight, did an ultrasound and found a large blood clot. She scheduled a D and C for 4/11/2013. on 4/10/2013, I passed a lot of blood clots. She said my surgery was successful and there was no cancer. I had a normal pap smear in 10/2012. Is it correct that a pap smear is done through the cervix?
I am scheduled for another ultrasound to make sure my cervix is still opened on 5/27/13 BEFORE I start back on the bioidenticals.
How can I be sure my cervix will remain open for menstruation? I don't ever want to go through all that pain again.
The bio-identicals did completely reverse my osteopenia and has allowed me to sleep and was helping urine incontinancy.
What should I do to keep my cervix open for menstruation? Will estrogen help?
I am 65 and have been on bio-idential progesterone and Estrogin for 2 years. In 2/2013 I started the T.S. Wiley bioidenticals. In 4 weeks, I started with cramps and in 7 weeks the cramps became unbearable. My Ob-Gyn said my cervix was shut tight and found a large blood clot through an ultrasound. April 2013 she did a D And C.and there was no cancer. I had a normal pap smear October 2012 and the day before my surgary, my cervix opened and a lot of blood clots came out.
I am scheduled to have another ultrasound in two weeks to make sure my cervix is still open before I start bio-identicals again. Will bio-identical estrogen keep my cervix open? I don't want to cause another blood clot because my cervix won't allow menstruation. I am taking bio-identicals because they reversed my osteoposis and allowed me to sleep. I also suffer from urine leakage. Is there anything that can be done to keep my cervix open?View Thread
