Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for prempro to work


Avatar n tn not enough knowledge on your concerns but Synthroid does take that long to reach peak effect!
Avatar n tn it was a little painful getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> taken out and the new one put in, but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me the pain was worth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> continue <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be period-free for another 5 years! Recently I have been experiencing hot flashes and night sweats so I asked my doctor if I could be going through menopause. She ordered bloodwork to check my hormones and informed me last week that yes, in fact I am quite far into menopause!!! (remember, age 39)!
Avatar n tn * Emollients during the drying/scaling phase of the condition, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> prevent cracking and itching. While petroleum jelly may <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> well as a barrier cream, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not absorb into the skin and or allow it to breathe, so may actually be less helpful. * Salt soaks - maintaining palms for 40 minutes to an hour immersed in a salt solution of 1/4 salt dissolved in water. Repeating treatment for 3-4 days or additionally if required.
Avatar n tn She is not licensed to perscribed medication however she told me that I do not need to be on Zoloft (which was perscribed by another doctor and I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> years) and told me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get off of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. So, unfortunately, I took her poor advice, went off Zoloft cold and had terrible side effects such as mood/mental changes, lack of sleep and weight loose.
Avatar f tn I am convinced companies like Wyeth should be government run or monitored somehow. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> many coverups and under the table payoffs and bribes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> before we wake up? Remember DES? If you research the history of HRT, you will discover what a total scam it was and is. They make billions sucking in women with dangerous, unproven drugs. This is one blog I came across that talks about it... http://drhotzeblog.netymology.
Avatar n tn anyway I am now trying the arimidex have just been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> since Tuesday 23,, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> on the arimidex <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> start having side effects, With me on the Aromasin it was just 2 weeks then wham they started big time. I know the difference between the two is Aromasin is a steroid and Arimidex is not. Has anyone taking the Arimidex had depression with it?
Avatar n tn My gyn/onc told me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> HRT only is I really felt I needed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. If <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was just <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> bad <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> handle. My first hot flashes were about a week after surgery. Really bad!!! The cold after was almost worse. Anyway, they went away for awhile and are now back but not so bad. Soooo, I think you should take your own feelings about how you are doing and your gyn/onc advice about what to do.
Avatar m tn I just recently skipped a month and a half between periods then had a period that lasted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 10 days. That's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me since I normally only have a period <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> 3 days. Then after the 10 days the period ended, five days later another period started and lasted for 6 days. First 10 days was a light period and the second 6 day period was very heavy and lots of clotting. Now it stopped a week ago and waiting to see what will happen next.
Avatar n tn thanks <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the input <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> gives me lots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> think about. My mood swings mostly involves crying (pity parties) and unprovoked anger. The hot flashes wake me two to three times a night. In combination with the PVC's and PAC's they are overwhelming.
Avatar f tn This is a change <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me since I was on my own <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> several years and only had myself <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> care of until my mom became ill with Alzheimer's. Anyway, thank you again for your help and I am going to get a look at that book you recommended and continue doing my research and try to find a doctor that can help me in the Seattle/Tacoma area.
252327 tn?1250187576 I added the coq10 about 3 weeks ago as far as the progesterone don't think I have any or last time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was done <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was maybe 2. I did <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> prempro years ago and did fine on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>, when I stopped <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> thats when the hash's kicked in. Since then I have not used any hormones. Lowered my t4 med yesterday to 75mcg and did not take a b12 shot yesterday. Last night I slept fine..Ill see how it goes in a few weeks. If I get sluggish I will alternate 75 with 88.
Avatar n tn He talked about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> helpful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> is regarding bladder issues. I am trying <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> stall off having bladder surgery <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> constant leaking. I have been able to control this through hormone use, particularly estrogen and local (in the vagina) estriol, which I have to get from a compounder. Some women use estrace for this. People think of vaginal dryness and I have suffered from that, but that gets all tied up with vaginal atrophy and then bladder issues.
Avatar n tn My wife provided everyone with phamplets, and brochures that the CDC sent me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> pass out, and we had enough <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> the class <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> home <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> friends and family. The center is going to have all that WANT to be tested, tested for Hepatitis ASAP.. But that is the reality.. PEOPLE do not know. People do not realize the SEVERitY of the disease, and are shocked and almost in disbelief when they find out the truth. But why haven't people heard about HCV?
Avatar f tn thought you folks taking bio's, BHRT, would be interested in this report today from the FDA saying that bio's are not better than taking the individual hormones separately.
Avatar f tn it took almost a year to find out that the big problems I was having was caused by a lack of progesterone. But, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> takes three months <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> totally deplete from your system, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> was three months practically to the day that I wondered what on earth was going on.
196469 tn?1365391575 I will say that I have read of other's reports that they did not do well on the progesterone, but I still have to wonder (and these are just thoughts of course) if it is a question of the receptor sites getting all agitated as they can when you start progesterone (or estrogen if you have been deficient for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> time)...I don't know. I read somewhere recently that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> may <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> months or even years <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get all straightened out.
Avatar n tn They have been making me sick to my stomach and I refuse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> also causes extreme weight gain. My twin still takes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. Is there anything else available to help with hypothyroidism? I try to battle all of the symptoms with natural herbs. My doctor tells me there is nothing else.....I believe there is...there had to be other things before synthetic medicine. I also have two small tumors on my thyroid that have been biopsed and are being monitered.
Avatar n tn There is so much to learn regarding all of this, but you need <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> research <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> all so that you can understand <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> the body uses hormones <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> protect and how you need to stay balacned. Northrup's book gives good information, too, to those who do not want to use the hormones unless it is as a last resort. I have more information regarding all of this on my profile and on my journal entry. for Dee.....
120574 tn?1240771440 I went through a natural menopause prior to surgery and yes, it did get much worse before <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> got better. I don't want <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> freak you out, but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> could <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> years. My hot flashes lasted about 4 or 5 years and were sometimes mild, sometimes horrible with sweat rolling down my face in the middle of my office (ugh). I read about something called TheraPause on the Hystersisters site yesterday.
Avatar n tn I am 41 with a strong family history of cancer. My mother had breast AND kidney cancer, and I recently lost my father to metastatic colorectal cancer. That being said, after having pain in the area of my left ovary, an ultasound found that I have "something" growing on my left ovary. A repeat ultrasound showed that it is growing, and I was giving the choice to leave it and "watch it" or have it removed. I did have a CA-125 blood test, which was "normal".
Avatar n tn I have had the same thing - I never heard of numbness from menopause, so I'm so thankful <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> this forum! <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> doesn't seem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get worse, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> comes and goes, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> travels around. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> feels like tingling, or itching in my skin, and numbness, but only on the surface. I can feel everything, and all digits and such work just fine. As a matter of fact, I've had more energy than ever lately, because my husband finally got himself a CPAP.
Avatar n tn Sad thing is there is no way <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> measure or test <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> today. I was told we were a year out from being able <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get answers <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span>. I was put on a list for trail medications. I am sorry to bring bad news but so far I have not found why I am gaining. Oh yeah a nutritionist saw my meal planner and said it was great so I know I am not eating junk food and that is why I am gaining weight.
Avatar n tn Suzsen, I can understand you pause when it comes to removing both of your ovaries, but I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> say that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>it</span> has been the best thing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>for</span> me. Although I have only had the last ovary out for 2 weeks, I feel so much better. The menopausal(sp) symptoms have not been bad (some hot flashes), but I have only been on the hormones since Friday. I believe this was the best thing for me. I will be praying that the answer of what you should do comes to you soon.
