Estrogen for wrinkles

Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen for wrinkles


Avatar m tn You should most definitely be on estrogen ( I use Divigel ) for sure. That should help some. I also take Biotin supplement ( it's good for hair, nails and skin ) The Divigel stopped my hot flashes, but I still have a big problem with being hot. Like there's an oven running inside of me constantly. Ugh. Oh yea, something else you can do that good for your skin is........
Avatar f tn Also found out that your estrogens and progesterone effect every single organ inluding thyroid. My doctor has me on low dose of estrogen and progesterone and my wrinkles are disappearing so I'm hopeful :) I also have a history of high cholesterol even before menopause. You may want the doctor to check your thyroid as well. Moisturizers, etc. weren't doing me ANY good either, just kept getting worse.
Avatar n tn I really feel at ease taking the estrogen and prometrium, thanks for your input.
Avatar n tn Hi I am 48 and experiencing all the aforementioned - hair loss (for which I've been using Rogaine), crepy skin, wrinkles, dry skin, sagging everything, varicose and bulging veins, and basically the loss of my looks. And I am so tired. I take a host of supplements, and use a red laser about 3 times a week. I have had no exercise in the last few months though and alot of stress. I weigh 115 at 5'3. Any advice other than cry and add exercise back in as well as quit my profession lol?
Avatar n tn You might try searching for migraines and estrogen...just a chance thought. I don't know what your personal migraine experience is, but if natural remedies can control them for you, then that is the best thing you could ever do for yourself. I think it is great that you are relying more heavily on natural medicine and self-healing. In my opinion that is the best way to go, the least damaging on the body and it has helped me personally though quite a few "episodes.
Avatar f tn It should I try to gain weight and stop breastfeeding, should I get tested for bone density, does not have a correlation with collagen?
Avatar n tn Is it possible that I have had this lump for 30 years? Does a thyroid problem make you age faster as in more wrinkles than the average? Does it have any effect on other hormones, for instance progesteron and estrogen levels?
10947 tn?1281407852 Skin changes in menopause are very common. Estrogen helps to keep the subcutaneous tissue (the supportive layer of the skin made up of collagen, elastic fibers known as elastin and hair follicles tissue just under the skin) full and this in turn keep away wrinkles and keeps the skin moist. In the first years after menopause, estrogen levels decline quickly and the amount of collagen decreases by as much as 2% per year.
Avatar f tn This is when the ovaries stop releasing eggs, periods come to an end, and the production of estrogen begins to decline. Estrogen is a powerhouse hormone. It stimulates maturation of a girl's body at puberty. It helps keep a woman's bones strong. It even regulates the production of cholesterol. Another thing estrogen does is stimulate the formation of skin-smoothing collagen and oils. That's why, as menopause approaches and estrogen production diminishes, dry, itchy skin becomes very common.
Avatar m tn Hi, How old are you? Was there any history of trauma in the area? A differential for a white patch on the penis may be a mild skin irritation like a dermatitis and psoriasis. These are just differentials. It is also necessary to note for any triggers which could have led to the condition. Also, are there any similar skin condition in other parts of the body? A consult with your physician will be able to help. It is important to have this examined thoroughly.
Avatar f tn I am 57 and have vetical lines = wrinkles very thin on my neck, arms and front of lower legs. I am hypothyroid, have not been on estrogen for 8 years and formerly baked in the sun. All lab tests are normal except for salt which is borderline low or normal. Has anybody else had this? I am wondering if it is just aging or is it sun damage??? If you have any ideas please let me know/ this is a really nice site.
Avatar n tn 5/ you change your underwear everytime you sneeze 6/you're on so much estrogen that you take your brownie troop on a field trip to Chippindales signs of wear old is whenyour sweetie says ..
Avatar f tn I also look angry (because my face is constantly making that expression where your trying to sleep and when you can't every night for two years has given me those wrinkles!) This is very hard for someone who used to constantly smile and loves people.. to not look pretty or approachable. You women are in your 50s and 60s and its hard enough to deal with the body changes THEN whey they are supposed to happen! Why should a twenty something have to go though this?
483733 tn?1326802046 A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function. Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys. Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones.
Avatar n tn My dermatologist injects them, but only mutters something about too much androgen, which I have heard for years. Sometimes (hormonal fluctuations) by chin continues to breakout for two weeks with one cyct after another. I have suffered with acne all my life, but at 55 was really hoping it would cease and desist. At what point should I see an endocronologist to determine where the androgen is coming from and why?
Avatar m tn And when your body is chronically acidic, it starts pulling calcium carbonate and calcium phosphates out of your bones to maintain a healthy pH, so reach for calcium-rich recipes to replenish them. Overall, that's bad news for bone health: Your bones could eventually become demineralized, setting you up for osteoporosis and fractures. Dr. Davis has seen thousands of patients enjoy fewer mood swings, better moods, deeper sleep, and better concentration when wheat is tossed from their diet.
Avatar f tn But I wanted to tell you to forget about looking at the wrinkles!! We all have them. Get out of the house!! Go for a walk. Have lunch with a friend. Make it happen!! Thats what I'm doing. I admit that some days are worse that others BUT!! I will NOT let menopause get the best of me. I wish you good health, optimism, engergy, and prosperity!!!
Avatar f tn I'm tried meds, exercising, and home remedies, store remedies for my ugly skin, and wrinkles and sagging eyes, gross skin on my body. I can't take it much more. I fear everyday I have to face. No I am not suicidal. Its not like that. I've been to counseling over the years and I'm even tired of that. Nothing works! What can I do. I'm angry, sad, lonely and need to do something about this. I think my doctor has given up on me or at least I feel there isn't much more she can do for me.
737143 tn?1232828298 All the time I feel detached, shortness of breath, loss of interest, unable to concentrate, not interested in making new freinds or talking to new people, I feel like I live in shallow different world, severe dry skin, I am only 29 and I got wrinkles on my hads, around my eyes. Then I got tested for B12 and Vit D TSH, FT3, Ft4, antibodies, Then I was given B12 shots, 50,000IU of Vit D, changed to Armour thyroid 60 mg. But did not feel any better.
Avatar n tn I took accutane for about 3-4 months, but I've been off of it for over a year. Before I took accutane, I was constantly wet - I would actually have to change underwear once or twice a day. I had an extremely high libido and orgasmed quickly. While on accutane, if my boyfriend and I would try to have sex, it would be so dry it felt like sandpaper and I would end up convulsing with tears it was so painful and frustrating. I thought it would change...
931415 tn?1244681111 I’ve also realized that it is the height of stupidity for a woman who has survived breast cancer to pump herself full of estrogen in the futile and pathetic quest to reclaim her lost youth. It’s just begging for a recurrence of her breast cancer, and Ms Somers epitomizes the cliche of “I’d rather be lucky than good.” Either that, or her cancer was estrogen receptor-negative, but even in that case it’s definitely pushing her luck to be bathing in “bioidentical” estrogens.
Avatar f tn I know that cutting off the blood flow to the ovaries can kill the estrogen production... though doctors won't say one way or another if it causes menopause. Anyway, I've always had 28 days then a 3 day cycle. The past two months it has been only every 21 days with the same 3 day cycle. I've been experiencing hot flashes, restless nights, sweaty sleep. I normally sleep soundly through. I've also started shaving my upper lip and have soreness in my elbows and knees.
Avatar n tn I have purchased every product out there that offers any hope for crepey skin, wrinkles, anti-aging of any sort. While some products may work for some individuals, I haven't found anything that works with regularity. I guess the nice smell sometimes makes me feel like it is helping - ha! I guess aromatherapy is good too! I know this may sound silly, but would anyone want to start a coalition of sorts? My thought was to join forces, weed out the bad products and report back to the group.
Avatar n tn ) but it is controversial, too. There are women who cannot take estrogen for sure, but more women than not can take some supplementation according to my research. And, why more women are not told of the healthful benefits of adding Bio Progesterone is beyone me. "Wisdom of Menopause" is a great resource and gives many options and explanations...whether you take hormonal supplementation or not.
271792 tn?1334983257 Today she talks me into buying estrogen for my mystery mustache and Women's Acidophilus because apparently I DO have Candida after all. I move on to the next aisle and ask the nearest Whole Foods clerk for help. He's wearing a visor inside and as if that weren't douchey enough, it has one word on it in all caps. Yup, NAMASTE. I ask him where I can find whole wheat bread. He chuckles at me "Oh, we keep the poison in aisle 7.
Avatar n tn here i for the last 6 months i have had itchy eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
Avatar n tn In December I went for another exam and nothing was found. 1 month ago I went for a mamogram and they found several cysts, 3 complex cysts and a mass in my right breast. I had a "surgical" biopsy 3 weeks ago and it came back negative. I don't know what to do. I have been talked to several times about having a double masectomy to reduce my risk. My Mother & sister feel that it would be best as well.
Avatar n tn I just started take it for 5 days without knowing all the details. Should I get my testosterone and estrogen levels tested first? Please advice me? Many many thanks to your help.
