Hi. When you mention symptoms returning, which symptoms are you referring to? Do you mean hot flushes or mood disturbances?
The role of the progesterone is mainly to protect the lining of the uterus against unopposed oestrogen. Oestrogen by itself can lead to thinkening of the endometrial lining which can predispose you to endometrial cancer. Therefore progesterone is very important. If the symptoms you are getting are related to progesterone side effects such as mood disturbances and depression, one very effective method to protect the lining of the uterus without having to take oral progesterone is the Mirena Intrauterine Device. It produces progesterone that protects the lining of the uterus. The effect of the progesterone in the Mirena is mostly to protect the lining, and only minimal amounts of the progesterone are absorbed into your system. This would mean your symptoms with the progesterone should not come back.
I would recommend an Oestrogen patch in combination with the mirena IUD. This has been shown to have the most superior results in terms of reducing the risk of blood clots in the legs and lungs as well as an improved side effect profile.
I have copied a link to an article that may shed more light on your question.
