Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have POF with FSH 101. I am taking Progyluton from three months but I still feel hot flashes and breast pain after starting brown tablets and these become worse in pill-free days. Am I taking right dose of hormones?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I just read your query and from the reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity) you mentioned it is clear that you have premature ovarian failure and you have been prescribed the drug Progyluton as a hormone replacement therapy. You have mentioned that you experience some symptoms such as hot flashes and breast pain in spite of taking hormone replacement therapy and they get worse during the pill-free period. Well, the hot flashes are common in premature menopause as in your case and the breast pain occurs because of progesterone component in your Progyluton. It will decrease with time sometimes up to a year and a half. Your dose is right. All I suggest is that you need to take these pills to prevent other problems from occurring such as decrease in bone density, cardiac problems, endometrial problems so on and so forth and also to prevent overt symptoms of menopause.

I hope this helps.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
