Comments from related studies:
From this study (7 days ago):
I am a 50 year old female, 130 lbs, 5' 7" tall. I have been receiving hormone replacement therapy pellets for that last two years. Getting over an elevated testosterone level having had two much inserted in the last 90 day cycle. Testosterone levels now about 265. Having head pressure or headaches that started about three weeks ago that last all day until sleep. Is there an metabolic or vitamin decline or might some levels of something be too high that might cause these headaches and might materialize when the menstrual cycle ceases ? I.E. Iron, adrenal production, etc. Have had an MRI recently that came back normal.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
During monthly breast exam tonight I found black discharge from one of my milk ducts whereas the other outlets were typical clear/yellow as usual. I breastfed for 6 years total and haven't breastfed now for 4 years. I take 200mg progesterone from day 2 to day 12 post peak ovulation using natural family planning. My friend who is a Board Certified Lactation Consultant said that this is most likely what it is and to ask my MD if I should continue on the Progesterone treatment after showing him pictures of the discharge.
From this study (1 month ago):
Have not had this symptom until initiation of hormones. Is this possible side effect?
