I was started on this medication taking 2 tabs BID... It did initially slow my periods down to a drip. My problem is that I noticed that I had began to gain weight. Was that due to the pill?? I had been bleeding heavily for a couple months and had to have other surgery, that is when they took an blood count and had to give me 3 units of blood. I since have stopped taking them due to see if I would continue to bleed, I have had my cycle pretty normal although I thought I would have been starting to go through menopause soon at the age of 52.

This is a Progesterone supplement and it is often used to try to help a woman restore her natural hormonal balance. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, irritability, mood changes, weight changes, and irregular bleeding.

And yes, at 52, you should be in menopause. Has there been any change?
