HRT over 70 years of age

by Anne
(Hot Springs, AR)

I have recently begun using NatPro with great results. I was very surprised that I would benefit at my advanced age. I informed my physician of the addition of daily progesterone cream during a routine visit and her response gave me pause. She said "ok for now" but "we'll want to stop after 70 years of age." Why? Because "they say" blah, blah, blah (I didn't get it.) So, I've been searching the internet for any info regarding HRT over 70 years of age and can find nothing.

So, my question is:

Do we stop HRT after reaching 70 years of age? And, if so, why?

Thanks to one and all for all you do for all of us. Am looking forward to your responses.

HRT over 70 years of age
by: Wray

Hi Anne Well that gave me a good laugh! Why indeed, I have no idea, if you can get more out of her I'd love to hear it. I'm not sure how old you are, but obviously heading for 70? So am I, I'm now 67, and I'll be using it till I die! I am delighted the Natpro has helped you though. I must admit to not calling progesterone HRT, although strictly speaking it is.

Find another doctor
by: Cricket

In my experience, many doctors trained to prescribe traditional medication for menopause are not open-minded enough or qualified to give advice about natural HRT. For years my doctor prescribed synthetic hormones and anti-depressants which were ineffective and I gained a lot of weight. When I wanted to get off of them, she warned that "my skin will look like crap." I went in a year later and she exclaimed how great I looked. When I told her I was taking BHRT, she criticized me and sabotaged me by prescribing a diuretic that blocked some of the hormones (androgen) I was taking, but didn't tell me. Quickly found another doctor.

Hi Cricket

What a terrible thing for your doctor to have done and a good job that you found another doctor too.

All to often doctors either do not want to know about natural products or are pretty clueless! Such a pity, as no person needs to suffer because of it.
