Difference between premarin and estradiol

Common Questions and Answers about Difference between premarin and estradiol


1344197 tn?1392822771 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.
Avatar f tn longer, doing better @ the gym and my family sees a huge difference in my mood and me too - no side effects - just have to take 1/2 my 30mcg after my morning run on empty stomach - then other 1/2 just before lunch as it's potent but in tiny doses not even noticeable other than you feel great - also I drink a little coffee so I add way more decaf to the mix - anyway I hear your concerns about hashimotos - doctors think this is same as sluggish thyroid older women get - not the same - hashimotos
Avatar n tn the first week of pills there is 20mcg of ethinyl estradiol (estrogen), the second week there is 30mcg, and the third week there is 35mcg. There is 1mg of norethindrone acetate (progestin) in all the pills.
Avatar n tn I had a tear almost probably about an 1/2 long right between my vagina and anus. It burns sooo bad to wipe, pee, if I move and stretch the area in that skin. It happens after sex with my boyfriend, probably because sometimes we are rough, and there isn't enough lubrication. I have to wait a few days until it has healed to have sex again. The doctor isn't much help, she was hell-bent on thinking it was herpes.
Avatar f tn They had given me after surgery some samples of different strengths of Premarin, which seemed if anything to make matters WORSE. So my local family doc called in estradiol 0.025mg/day 7-day patches. Did not help at all, so then they called in a "bio-identical" estradiol 0.05mg/day patch to be changed every 3 days. This almost immediately brought relief, though still had some hot flashes (I can get through those, but NOT feeling like I'm losing my mind!).
Avatar n tn My question is - is it safe to go on HRT when you have ovca? I thought there was a link between ovca and an increase in ovca. I am 45 years old and not ready to deal with all the negatives of menopause but don't want to make things worse.
359574 tn?1328364024 She brought up something from our first appointment about a bout of vision change that first came on 9 years ago--a graying out of a portion of my vision in the right eye, midway between center and the bottom of my vision field. I had a normal brain MRI back then, and the opthalmologist said it's ocular migraines. I've had it a few times since when I get tired or eye strain, but I always pass vision field tests.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know of any connection between anorexia, the pituitary gland and levels of ACTH or cortisol?
Avatar n tn It's true that they can't tell the difference between stress, exercise, and caffeine causing tachy. It was how I responded to the IV medicine that they knew mine was IST (the tilt table test was to diagnose NCS, which I do have). Did you say your dr. was an electrophysiologist? How old are you? I can't understand why he doesn't know what to do with you. If you have an ablation please go to someone with a whole lot more experience!!!
Avatar f tn I had a complete hysterectomy at age 39 and my doctor has told me a low dose of estradiol (.5-1mg) is fine to take until the age I would naturally have gone through menopause (50+). She is very aware that I am going through treatment. In fact I just went for my annual visit several weeks ago and she again said to continue with estrogen. On tx you certainly don't need the added complications of reducing or stopping your HRT.
Avatar n tn I was given cortisone to use vaginally twice a week and premarin. The premarin caused problems and so he stopped it. Last week he told me that I would take the cortisone the rest of my life and to come back to see him in a year. I am confused with this and am searching the internet for information. That is when I found your link. I would also like any information on this subject.
Avatar n tn I was always skinny. I was between 115 and 120. I will be 42 this year and I cannot believe how much I am still suffering in so many ways after this horrible surgery. I now know that mine was unnecessary and I had other options. Not only I have I gain an enormous amount of weight but I lose all of my desire for sex and cannot have an O. I am not sure if I am allowed to say the O word here or not?
Avatar n tn I've only been charting a couple cycles - charted last month (no ovulation) and then again this month (I ovulated yay!) - and the difference is very obvious!! Its also very helpful to take along to my dr appts so he knows what is going on. Good luck everybody!!
Avatar f tn I have been on both for about a month and see no difference. I have not lost a pound and the hot flashes are as hot as ever and still no libido. I have three more bottles to go, so I am hoping that it will kick in yet. But I am afraid it is just another gimmick and money grab because if it did work then every body would be on it. I will let you know how it goes. For now I would save my money and I will let you know how it goes. So far not so good.
Avatar n tn I had an ultrasound to discover it was an interuterine pregnancy and I was about 9 weeks. I am now 17 weeks and for the past month trying to decide to terminate or continue. I am having a very hard time finding any info on any one with this happening to them and the risks to me or my unborn child. I have seen several doctors and none of them have ever heard of this happening and 2 have suggested termination. I have an appointment with a high risk specialist on Thursday (02/27/03).
