    I tried a progesterone cream. Didnt do anything for me. A few years later, I tried an oestrogen cream. It did nothing either. If there is a cream out there that might work, I would give it a go. It depends on the severity of your symptoms.

    Not something I have heard of, but did your doc SAY they were bio-identical? If they are it is worth a shot. Our health trust won't do them,just prefer to dole out the 'conventional' cxxp.

    To balance things out he should be doing a mix of oestrogen and progesterone tailored just for you.

      Bobby girl you are so exactly right ! Tailored to me he will tweak it as needed! I'm excited to give it a shot takes up to 48 hrs turn around ! You apply it to inside lower arms , neck or upper chest area after you shower he said about same time each day or close to it ! Some can tell a difference with in few days some take a little longer !! Andrews Apothecary

    Why don't you go to your gynecologist rather than a primary care doctor, who is just a general practitioner and isn't well versed in women's issues?

      Sochima I had TAH in June was under gyn care and last appointment 2 weeks ago had blood work done for hormone check I think this new very young doctor I had been given my Dr moved or relocated and I had a post op recheck and a list of crazy things to much going on for this guy! I hadn't heard about results so I called his nurse said results were menopause and dr said go back to primary so I was stuck I like my primary dr she close to my age and get it!

      When I asked my Gynae about the right HRT for me (and whether I should take it at all) he said 'talk to your doctor, he'll sort something out. I don't do that sort of thing'. When I said my doc was a GENERAL Practioner the Gynae just shrugged.rolleyes

      I think this Bio identical hormone therapy going to do good he said he will have me more balanced than I've been in 10 years so I'm excited to try it he has it ready but I didn't have enough time to go get it yesterday! He will tweak it each prescription I get ! My GP is a little older than me but she doesn't put her patience on any due to risk! So I'm hopeful with this Creme he has made just for my symptoms!! I will let you know how it work soon!!
