Weight gain with vagifem

Common Questions and Answers about Weight gain with vagifem


Avatar n tn for something natural, because when I do not take hormones I have the propensity to have really bad hot flashes, night sweats, weight gain, sleepless nights, etc. - she prescribed Vagifem. I thought I was home safe & decided to check into this product. It looks like it has risks as well and seems to be more for vaginal dryness - which I do not have a problem with. Can you please shed some light on the use and risks associated with Vagifem? Thank you.
1128665 tn?1269277071 As a woman who had spent the bulk of her life researching aspects of health and being pro-active with her own, I was shocked to be diagnosed with a condition that I’d never heard of. I was frustrated. I was angry. As soon as I got home from that initial diagnosis, I started doing what I do best, researching. As I researched, I kept coming across the same phrase; it’s so common, it’s so common, it’s so common.

In addition, these providers often suggest that Bioidentical Hormones can only be obtained from a compounding pharmacy. The fact is that there are many FDA-approved bioidentical hormone products available in the U.S. today. In fact, they have been available in the U.S. since 1975!
Avatar f tn Hi again, Well, I experienced vaginal dryness, insomnia, hot flashes, depression, greater fatigue and weight gain. The worst part was I didn't know what was happening to me. I thought my vagina had changed from the surgery but it turned out that dryness caused a multitude of issues for me. Just because they give you the all clear at six weeks doesn't mean you have healed. I learned that the hard way.
Avatar n tn I am actually trying to gain weight. I've been in the 90's until about a week ago when I finally got up to 105 lbs. Have kept the weight on for a week so I'm pleased with that! I'm 5'2. Everyone that I 've talked to has told me that the recovery time was longer than they thought. I will definitely take your advice and not rush back into life. I'm 50 years old and had my tubes tied at 30 so the kid issue won't be a problem for me. I'm glad to hear that you are doing well now!
233772 tn?1297356983 The dose is only 10mg, will I gain weight or get a moon face like some side effects I have read about? That worries me cause I am trying to lose weight and I don't want a moon face either. When I saw him yesterday, I did have a slight temp 99.0 and I usually run low. I should hear from the allergist sometime today. I will let you know.

Avatar n tn I'm physically active and I work out a lot and my weight gain just seemed not the usual weight gain most people gain over the winter. I still stay very active even over the long winter months. I've never had any type of surgery and I had a text book pregnancy with our daughter so I am terrified!
Avatar n tn I'm 34 female (from the US, never been preg, no children, weight was around 165), been with all the same symptoms as everyone else. It started with what felt like very bad craps one night all night i was laying on the bed in pain, went to family dr. they done ultra sound, found small cyst.
Avatar n tn I could really use some help, I just lost my insurance so I don't want to go running to the doctor, also I just was at the doctors and found out I have HPV could this have something to do with all the itching and tearing also?? Please help me I'm going crazy here!
Avatar n tn Hi, I had been having lots of itching, burning and a brownish discharge for two weeks after a fun sex filled weekend with a boyfriend whom I only see every two months or so. This happens often and I have always treated it as a possible yeast infeciton. This time it didn't go away and so I saw my ob/gyn. She took a culture and found strep B, which has nothing to do with Strep A that creates strep throat.
Avatar n tn Clear laundry detergent, and wash with warm water as I fell needed throughout the day. I also don't get my period often, I tied my tubes in 2003, so I don't take any BC. I am not on any medication. Just looking for what else might there be...
604185 tn?1233964457 The first test I did with my frest at 9dpt was a BFP! I felt so much more with the fresh cycle, but was on so many more meds, plus going through the egg retrieval process is hard on the body. We did end up pregnant with twins after putting two blasts in, then at week 6 we found out both my eggs had split and I had 2 sets of identicals, which shocked us to say the least. Lost one set naturally at 7 weeks, then sadly the heartbeats stopped at week 10 and I had to have a D & C.
