Common Questions and Answers about Estrogen without prescription


Avatar m tn Estrogen pills such as Estrace require a prescription from your doctor. You should not take any that are obtained without a prescription.

1102951 tn?1302376534 Hi everyone, Just wanted to get a sense of what you all think about taking Clomid without a prescription. I know it's generally not a good idea to buy pills/medicine off the internet, and self-monitor, but I am starting to feel very anxious and desperate. I've had blood tests done, everything seems fine. My GP says "just relax", but is all getting to me! (It will be a year of TTC in Sept.) And there is so much contradictory information around: e.g.
Avatar n tn I've also been on Vagifem for 2 years and love the effect, however, my last ultrasound showed a build up of the lining of my uterus, so now I need an endometrial biopsy. My doctor said it could be from the Vagifem which is estrogen without progesterone. I just read the leaflet and it does say that if you have a uterus, you should discuss adding progesterone to your regimen to counteract the possibility of the vagifem causing this lining buildup.
1142929 tn?1271626435 Did they ever diagnose those infections definitively or were they just slapping a prescription on a symptom? Estrogen does play a role in discharge, are you at a point of life when estrogen begins to go down? Rawness in the genital area can be an irritation without being an infection, for example, if someone has a reaction to laundry detergent or perfumes used in skin cream or soap.
393685 tn?1425816122 Supplemental progesterone can offset this imbalance; women taking prescription–strength estrogen will generally need prescription–strength bioidentical progesterone as well. Again I see that the labs tests are not the "tell all" answer.
1074733 tn?1256235219 My blood and saliva panel came back showing a very high level of estrogen, even though I have no uterus and only 1 ovary. They call this estrogen dominance. They prescribed estrogen cream which was compounded by a pharmacist. Over the past 10 years I have had numerous doctors tell me they thought I should be on HRT for symptoms I was having, and just because of the hysterectomy.
135691 tn?1271100723 I am hanging onto 30lbs from chemo and it's all around my stomach! I'm eating less, starting to exercise and have gained 2 more lbs. Is it my Estrogen? If I lowered my dosage (which I want to anyways) would that help the situation at all? I know that having more fat around your abdomen can increase estrogen levels in your body - is that still true if I have no ovaries? UGH...when will I ever be normal again!! Mary...
1376367 tn?1319230027 I had another short lived migraine last night and I don't know what exactly triggered this one. I ate fresh yeast made buns when my mother was over yesterday. I also had to endure some stress with this situation that was an emotional draw back from the past, so this may have been the upset for me. The week prior I played in a performance at the Monterey Center and ate a Buerrito and this journal wasn't noted.
Avatar f tn 7 to 7.2 without estrogen, and with estrogen was 8.2. I was shocked because this month I took high dose of Progyluton (estradiol valerate). I have no idea why my body did not respond to estrogen?? Have anyone faced same problem where endo was not responding to estrogen? is changing the drug to estrace or premarine can make a difference?
Avatar n tn I am pleased to be through the scare, but now need to find out about living without the gland. Over the last 3 weeks I have found myself to be very weepy and emotional. I am also very tired during the day, but struggle to get a good nights rest. I have also woken up with the feeling of panic attacks. My guess is that my dosage is off. Right after the surgery they put me on the same dosage of thyroid replacement medicine (150 mcg) I was on prior to the surgery.
Avatar n tn however, no supplements or prescription drugs other than multivitamin and propecia. ..Very occasionaly Flexeril and Ambien because of back spasms. I went to my primary care physician with tenderness in my right nipple (unilateral) 6 weeks ago. (note: it has slightly worsened).
Avatar f tn However, lot's of men and women have the same scenario of being undiagnosed for years, even without the estrogen component. By the way, if you're interested, I have a small website that I'm getting functional. There's enough there to read about my story, testimony, etc. If you're interested here's the web address: http://www.hepcandme.
Avatar n tn My internist said that there are certain things you can't see with a regular gynological exam,and she gave me a prescription to get a pelvic vaginal ultrasound,and she said she didn't think it was anything serious and that it could be fibroids but that given that my mother died of uterine cancer she said it was totally understandable I would be worried.
Avatar f tn However, since vagina is a sensitive area, please do not try these without medical prescription. Take care!
Avatar n tn Prior to the surgery, I suffered with migraines and they were significantly reduced with the use of estrogen. Since stopping the estrogen, I have been getting severe frequent migraines. Should I go back on estrogen?
Avatar n tn The treatment is dependent on the cause. Infections may require prescription medications. Erosion caused by trauma or chemicals may only require avoiding further trauma or chemical exposure, allowing time for the cervical surface to heal. Cauterization is also used on occasion. Estrogen vaginal cream also may help thicken the vaginal and cervical epithelium.
Nicelady Hello, You can take short term hormone replacement therapy with estrogen. Non-hormonal biphosphonates (such as Fosamax and Actonel) increase bone strength and are available as once-a-week pills. These can also be taken. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
329994 tn?1301666848 I went back to my gyn today and basically, what he said was, that I am still producing estrogen (from my symptoms) so he thinks my cysts will resolve and my adenomyosis will go away. He can't explain the bloating, the fullness, the urinary urgency, the constipation or the shortness of breath - sheesh! He wanted to put me on daily progesterone to counterbalance the estrogen. I did tell him no to that, because I was so depressed when I was on it before and it did nothing.
Avatar f tn A friend told me to try oral estrogen pills because they have more estrogen than the vaginal creams. Do I get this over the counter or so I need a prescription? I know I can get phyto estrogen over the counter, is that the same as estrogen? I'm only 26, I should nor have this problem yet. I just want to be the way I was before, how do I stop this dryness?
1258539 tn?1293843802 My first dr just gave me prescription- premarin without checking any levels at all. It made me WORSE!! After getting my hormones checked I found I was estrogen dominant and she had given me MORE estrogen- that is why I was worse. I needed progesterone to balance the estrogen. It does take some time for the bioidenticals to work, but within several weeks it should help.
Avatar f tn If you are not experiencing menopausal symptoms, use plain natural progesterone and don't buy any creams or supplements that contain other ingredients for menopause like herbal equivalents of estrogen. The condition of low progesterone/normal estrogen levels is also called "estrogen dominance" so you'll be right back where you started if you use them. Avoid soy pills or soy milk, too, since soy can mimic estrogen.
Avatar f tn So I guess my questions are (1) Can HSV II be causing my vulvar aching even without any sores? (2) Can HSVII remain latent in the body for 2-3 years, with first outbreak occurring w/ no prior igM or igG upregulation? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I've also been unable to exercise, sweat, shower or endure physical pressure without making myself worse... a lot worse. Tried countless over-the-counter and prescription drugs (antihestimines and painkillers), and not one helps an ounce. Every doctor I turn to for help ends up saying that it's not their problem and rushing me out the door. Frustrating to say the least. I'm confused on who exactly I'm supposed to turn to next.
Avatar m tn I am on Arimidex because my cancer was progesterone/estrogen sensitive. I am gaining weight, and although I watch what I eat and walk 2.5 miles per day, the weight just continues to add on. Can you tell me if GABA interferes with Arimidex, and does it produce or effect the production of estrogn and progesterone?
11156324 tn?1415764422 There are many different forms and dosages of estrogen available by prescription. Not all of them work well for each woman so you may just need to try a different one. Which one did you try and what problems did it cause?
Avatar f tn Try doing kegel exercises or you can consult a gynecologist and ask for dilators prescription. Vaginal dryness can be due to low estrogen levels - seen during menopause, stopping birth control medications, having a baby, or as a side effect of certain medications. Also, high levels of stress can cause vaginal dryness. Cigarette smoking can also cause vaginal dryness. Rarely medical conditions like sjogrens syndrome can cause these symptoms.
9523089 tn?1414215566 It went away completely and would have without the Renova as it is often a reaction to too much estrogen in the system. I got dermablend cover up that comes in a little pot and put it on the spots that had the dark covering. It worked pretty well. Not the greatest thing in the world but better than the mask of pregnancy showing. Again, mine went completely away so was a temporary pregnancy thing.
368646 tn?1208397487 estrogen and testosterone. Supplements of DHEA can be bought without a prescription and are sold as “anti-aging remedies.” Some proponents of these products claim that DHEA supplements improve energy, strength, and immunity. DHEA is also said to increase muscle and decrease fat. Right now there is no consistent evidence that DHEA supplements do any of these things in people, and there is little scientific evidence to support the use of DHEA as a “rejuvenating” hormone.
