    Oestradiol - they are bioidentical.  The brand I use is Estraderm MX 100, but it may be a different brand where you come from.  Patches (transdermal) are much safer than tablets.  If you can get an oestradiol pellet for implant, they are even better, but try the oestradiol patch first.

    Hi. I'm 40 and had ovaries removed and have been on estrogel which I've found fine. Good thing with gel is you just rub in rather than having patches on you or tablets which go through your organs. I'm still looking at right doses but I'm on the minimum at the mo and stopped the flushes and seeing how I'm not producing anything naturally now that's good going. Gp said it will take a few months of getting things right and for body to get used to constant dose to feel 100% but tbh I'm almost there after 4 weeks 😊 good luck
