Avatar f tn I am 55 and went through menopause almost 5 years ago. I use a generic weekly estradiol patch (.1 mg) and Prometrium (200 mg) every night due to extreme menopausal symptoms. I change my patch on Monday evenings. I bleed for several days beginning every other Monday. Could this be caused by the patch losing effectiveness before the week is up? Would switching to Vivelle Dot, which has a twice a week schedule, help prevent the bleeding?
Avatar n tn Have you looked into using a bio-identical HRT, such as Estradiol? Much better for you, all natural. Best to use it in a patch, cream, or gel, but it would probably be a bit more expensive, unless you got generic, you could check and see. I also feel much better on it. I know the generic patches are cheaper. I like the gel the best though. You could use it indefinitely with no worries, like those possible from synthetics, in my opinion. Do a search on Estradiol and see what you think.
Avatar m tn I personally found generic Estrace (micronized estradiol tablets) to work better for me than the patch. And a bonus is that it is a $4 (for 30) / $10 (for 90) prescription whereas I think I was paying $70 for a 3 month supply of patches.
1651832 tn?1301694205 I've noticed on this forum that some people are taking the patch that contains estradiol. I've been doing some research and have also read some very good things about the estrogen hormone (E3) called estriol. Does anyone have any experience with that hormone. Any help and advice I can get will be much appreciated!! Thanks!
Avatar f tn Although I didn't have swelling, it did not provide enough or a consistently enough estrogen for me. I now use generic estradiol tablets which are a $4 Rx ($10 for 90 days). Maybe a different form would not cause swelling. There are gels such as Estrogel and Evamist and a vaginal ring called Femring. I believe all of these are considered bio-identical (estradiol).

Avatar f tn Maybe Premarin is not a good fit for you since you still have (insane) hot flashes. Have you tried any other types of estrogen such as a gel, patch, or the estradiol tablet (generic Estrace)? I had to switch HRT's because the first one I was prescribed left me with too many low E symptoms.
Avatar f tn including severe depression, insomnia, horrible memory and cognition, blurry vision, RAPID aging, etc etc. The estradiol tablet (generic Estrace) has worked MUCH better. And the bonus is that it is much cheaper - a $4/$10 Rx (at least in the U.S. and that is without insurance). Have you tried it? For the HRT's you have tried, have you maybe just not used a high enough dose? I know gels can take more pumps and or higher concentrations than most women and doctors realize.
Avatar m tn It is a real travesty that gynecologists seldom tell women the facts about the effects of hysterectomy and/or ovary removal. I take estradiol tablets (generic Estrace). Every woman's body is different so what delivery route (pill, patch, gel, vaginal ring) and dosage works for one may not work for another. But the generic Estrace works well for me and is a $4/$10 prescription (without insurance). Hope this helps and I hope you can find something that helps you quickly.
Avatar n tn I was easily overheated on the patch plus it left me with too many other surgical menopause symptoms. I do much better on generic Estrace tablets. Oddly, an estradiol blood level in the 120's on the patch left me with symptoms but an estradiol level in the 60's on the generic Estrace tablets keep symptoms at bay. Have you had your thyroid checked too?
1344197 tn?1392822771 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.
Avatar f tn My endro told me my labs were “perfect” and there was nothing wrong with my thyroid, to go to heart doc, then to gyn. EKG and US already done, basically normal. My blood results for FSH, estradiol, anti mullerian show I am in menopause, so I need a endro who understands. I am 49, no kids, having irregular menses past year, only one very light since mid June. My gyn recom Vivelle dot patch 0.025 ?
1129774 tn?1279835362 We first tried decreasing my dose and taking me off generic. Then we tried cytomel. I was only on it for two days before I got extremely itchy. So for the past two weeks I have been on compounded natural thyroid. I am starting to have muscle twitching, my feet feel tingly and burning, and I am over all itchy. Now I have read many website that state these can be hypo. symptoms. Has anyone experienced these? I assume my lev. is wearing off, and the n.
Avatar f tn I get much better results with the estradiol tablet (generic Estrace) which is a $4/$10 prescription in the U.S. If you want to go with transdermal delivery, gels or compounded creams are options. So is Femring but it is very expensive and seems like it seldom lasts the full 3 months. Although hysterectomy is grossly overused, many gyns seem uneducated about hormone replacement.
446193 tn?1208837340 I have taken generic and name brand Syntroid. The dose I was on for almost two years without any trouble was 112 and in the Fall , I had an infection ans was prescribed and antibiotic and all these troubles began after that. I asked my doctor if there was connection and was told there was no possibility of one having anything to do with another. I also take several medications for other issues. Estradoil for menopause syptoms.

Avatar n tn I usually take Actifid for my sinuses when I fly and somehow this mix caused the attacks. I now take the patch Estradiol (the most natural form of Estrogen) and Prometrium (the most natural form of Progestin from the Mexican Yam) and have had absolutely NO problems. I keep forgetting that hormones, too, are drugs. It is also known that Medroxyprogesterone negates the benefits that Estrogen gives the heart. That is another reason to switch to the Prometrium that has been O.K.
328927 tn?1227765440 AF arrives Monitor for LH surge with OPK 10 days after LH surge detected - apply estrogen patch. Patch is changed every other day until next AF shows up.
6322039 tn?1380731598 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn Will see what the insurance company wants me to do to prove that my GH is too low. I can't understand why the barely cover my bio identical estradiol and progesterone creams or vivelle dot. Won't cover estrogen vaginal cream at all. Do you get these replaced? Does the ins. cover it? Can you tell me why it won't work to add HC at the time of day my cortisol is too low, or just 2mgs of Medrol instead of full replacement at 4mgs?
Avatar n tn My doc has me on some hormone replacement...estrogen(estradiol) and progesterone. I had to beg for it but my cancer was hormone receptor negative so she said ok. That and an antidepressant (lexapro and not the generic) help me sleep am shell the severity of the migraines but still do not get rid of the other annoying symptoms. They do get worse when I a skipping periods. FYI.
1942586 tn?1361027646 What's the protocol your Dr has you on for the FET, any drugs? My Dr said to keep doing the estrogen pills (Estradiol - blue pill) by mouth morning and night. Stop progesterone shots and just coast on a natural cycle, no other drugs. Are you doing anything differently this time around? Even though it's completely different already being a frozen and not fresh. But I mean like acupuncture? Herbal drugs?
1219580 tn?1297221739 Was told today that with my night dose of Estrace (I use generic estradiol) to insert the tablet vaginally. This is a new one for me... it's not even Estrace cream. Just curious....
Avatar n tn Maybe we all have something in common, like birth control or something like that. I use the ortho evra patch, let's see, what else. KY warming gel,tampax compact tampons, skintaminte shave gel, intuition cucumber-melon razor/soap. Maybe I have it all wrong or something, it could be something that just happens. I haven't been to the doctor for it yet. I just went for a bladder infection a couple weeks ago, but now that I think of it, this was going on durinig my bladder infection too.
