It is advisable that you contact your Gynaecologist with your complains of profuse sweating. Your Gynaecologist is the right person to review the present treatment along with your recent complains.
You need not be afraid at all. Since you are on hormonal therapy, certain side-effects are to be anticipated, but they are mostly harmless or at the worst, irritating.
Your Consulting Doctor may reduce the dosage or prescribe alternatives or may decide to continue the therapy - these decisions are not simple, but need to be reached taking into concern many other factors.
Your Doctor would be in the best position to answer all your queries and address your concerns. Please do not take advices for such complains online on internet fora.
This is one brand name drug of progesterone. Progesterone can cause several Side Effects. Headache, breast tenderness, diarrhea, vaginal discharge, and problems with urination are some Side Effects that tend to be transient. If these persist, a woman taking Progesterone supplements should tell her doctor. Some people taking Progesterone may experience dizziness or drowsiness. Progesterone should therefore not be taken before driving or operating heavy machinery. Other Side Effects may be more serious, and if they occur, a woman taking Progesterone should contact her doctor immediately. Because Progesterone causes increased blood clotting, it can contribute to a heart attack, blood clots in the lungs and legs, or even stroke. Some signs of such serious Side Effects are chest pain, blurred vision or loss of vision, numbness or tingling in the arms or legs, and sudden shortness of breath. Other serious Side Effects that warrant immediate medical attention are unexpected vaginal bleeding, breast lumps, migraines, and uncontrollable shaking.
I think you should definitely go back to your doctor, as anybody who has been prescribed a medicine should report unusual reactions to be on the safe side. Why be afraid when you can return to the doctor? Then again if you are 48 and this is new (heavy period for 8-10 days) it could be a combination of the drug and the onset of menopause.
In women, the amount of sweat can vary at different phases in the menstrual cycle. Sweating tends to be more profuse after ovulation and premenstrually.One type of glands called called eccrine glands in all over the body serves as a hidden temperature control system. When the body heats up, these glands release the watery secretion we know as sweat. When the sweat evaporates, that helps cool the skin. Tight clothing sets you up for prickly heat, because it traps sweat next to your skin and keeps it from evaporating, to avoid that, wear loose-fitting cotton clothings both outer and inner wears.Another problem that some people experience is excessive sweating, referred to by doctors as hyperhidrosis.May be the hormal change and fluctuations in your body due to Regesterone leading to sweatness. Any way ehavy menstruation should be controlled.Your Periods and ovulation are irregular. those who have irregular menstruation have the trouble of heavy flow when it happens. Yes, you have to go back to your doctor, Whenever heavy sweatness happens your body feel a shortage of water percentage in your body, and feel to take water in a hectic way. Such conditions should be convayed and consulted.
Hameeda, talk to your doctor ASAP. This is a serious issue and please do not wait for advises from an ameature site. Every people have different reactions to medications, so even if somebody tells you that in her case this was just a side effect, it can be different for you. So please ask your doctor. Good luck,
You are currently during the phase when most women have menopause. This can cause irregular periods and you are in one such irregular period. Unless it is painful, you can refrain from taking any medication.
My advice is that you should consult your doctor so that if its side-effect of those tablets, he can help you. Otherwise, sweating is a common problem and it depends on a person's body nature that how much sweat is produced. But as you are saying that after taking tablets (after 10 days), you are sweating a lot, you should consult your doctor.

you should go back to your doctor if this is something that has happened since you started taking the tablets. The tablets will have altered your hormonal levels and perhaps it has altered it a little too much.
