It is produced primarily in the ovaries, body fat, and breast. E2, Estradiol; Serves as the primarily active estrogen BEFORE menopause and is LOST at menopause when follicles are gone. It is produced primarily in the ovaries with some made from testosterone in the brain, breast, and muscle. E3, Estriol; A weak estrogen made by the placenta during pregnancy. There is only one progestin, Progesterone, which is converted to other progestins.
17-beta estradiol, the most biologically active; estrone, a derivative of estradiol and the second most dominant estrogen; and estriol, a very short-acting estrogen and the least biologically active. The first misconception is that US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-regulated drugs are not bioidentical. This is wrong. A long list of FDA-approved hormone products contain 17-beta estradiol and, therefore, are bioidentical.

I have been seriously thinking about switching to the Estrace which has much more estradiol vs the weaker estrone. I am wondering if the biest just doesn't have enough estradiol to relieve the symptoms. I wonder if the compounding pharm can add more estradiol to the mix? I just want sooooommmmmmeeee sssllleeeeppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Glad to hear you are feeling better on the lower dose! Yes my compounding phar charges a huge consult fee. What a crock. I'm rather cranky today.
I have the estradiol gel now but I want to know if the dose is right. Also, do you use it in the evening or morning?
After reading sections of Notrhrup's book on hysterectomy, hormones, synthetic vs. bioidentical, cancer situtions, and hormones, etc...I asked my doctor if I could add progesterone. By this time, I had read several smaller books on progesterone recommended by Northrup and practically every page was highlighted!!!
But we're not going there yet with worry since we'll wait and see what the labs tell us. The NP started me on an Estradiol patch 0.05 mg, Estriol 0.5mg suppositories and Progesterone 300 mg ERT half-tab daily. This regimen was begun September 23. She has also recommended some interesting vitamin supplements, too. Though it is very early in this new treatment, I'm at least optimistic this will help.
I have a full head of hair which grew THICKER after meno. I know that estradiol in the Pill made my hair fall, so it doesn't surprise me that it became thicker (although still fine in diameter). Recently, I thought I would try to go without daily use of minoxidil (as I did when I was pregnant and also once after that). Big mistake. After four months, it started falling like crazy as the hair went into the telophase.
Please verify your dosage, then it might be better to post your actual test results in a thread of your own vs latching onto an old one, like this. You can post your thread, by clicking on the orange "post a question" button at the top of the thyroid home page.
