Progesterone - Another of the female sex hormones. It works in the body to balance the effects of estrogen and is often referred to as the relaxing hormone. Progesterone is produced after ovulation by the corpus luteum (sack that the egg comes from) and dominates the second half of the cycle (luteal phase). Progesterone¹s main job is to control the build up of the uterine lining and help mature and maintain the uterine lining if there is a pregnancy. If there is no pregnancy, our progesterone levels fall and the lining of the uterus is shed, beginning the menstrual cycle.
This is a common problem with pellets. If you go looking for forums on the matter, you will see that it is rather typical for patients to have a similar response somewhere around the 4th and 5th implantation. This stems from poor oversight/management, and design flaws in the pellets themselves. Keep in mind that all pellets are made the same way. This may seem beneficial at first glance, however, what this really means is that “6 months” worth of medication dissolves in a way that sends your levels far too high in the first month, and then plummeting far too fast and low in the next 2-3.
Normally, women bleed from their uterus during their periods, but those with vicarious menstruation can bleed from their eyes, ears, and mouth. A case report published in The Journal of the American Medical Association found a young woman who was suffering from an ulcer on each leg experienced excessive pain and bled profusely. The edges were irregular and not inflamed nor raised. Despite various forms of treatment, the ulcers remained large during five or six days of menstruation, and then closed three days later with a smooth, apparently thin skin.
