Went on HCG hormone therapy to lose weight, recived 3 hormone shots, with the last one I proceeded to have some mild cramping and bleeding,bright red,as in a period which at age 73 has not occurred in many years. I stopped the program! My question is this because of the hormone therapy because this doctor doing this program is trying to indicate other causes and wants to do a pelvic ultra sound. I was perfectly fine and had just seen my regular doctor month before so if it is the cause will the hormone eventually leave my body without further injections?
Dear An_251704, I do think it is most likely that the HCG produced the bleeding (which is why I do not recommend this program to anyone-I've heard of way too many episodes of bleeding) but I do think a pelvic ultrasound would be a good idea-it is fairly straight forward, and all you need to see is a nice thin lining of the uterus for reassurance-and if it is enlarged, then you will need it evaluated. Good luck, Mary Jane
