    I may have to stop HRT?
    chteacher posted:
    I received your advice recently, that the progesterone may effect bowel motility. I ended up receiving a lower dose. (100mg instead of the 200 mg.) I am seeing my GP next week for the continuing diarrhea. I have been keeping a log and, while it's not a daily occurrence, and not all day, I am still very anxious that something is really wrong. I have been using the estradiol patch and the progesterone since February. I have had some tests done for which I haven't received the results on the bowel business. I am narrowing it all down and I think I may have to stop the HRT and get myself some help of the anxiety. Is there anything else that I should consider? Thank you for whatever help you can offer and *fingers crossed* that this site is working..
