Risks of Provera

(1 Post)

I take Provera for 10 days every three months as part of my HRT. I take Elleste solo every day. The Provera I was told is supposed to induce a bleed, which it doesn't. I have spoken to my GP who doesn't seem concerned, apparently it's not unusual. I am having very, very sparse periods, not really proper periods, just finished one but prior to this, the last one was May. I am worried about the lining of my womb not being shed, could this cause cancer of the womb lining, I am also worried about the breast cancer risk of Provera. Would I be better on a natural progesterone, and if so, what would that be?

I lost my husband to cancer three years ago, so this is a very real worry to me. I am 50 years old by the way.

Thank you in advance for any advice xx
