On new HRT....A little confused
I went and saw a new doctor who is a super guy. He listened to me and put me on two patches one is called climara Pro and the other a Testosterone patch that is called androderm.
The reason I am so confused is that the climara pro patch contains progestin not progesterone. I wanted progesterone and I thought he understood that. Should I call and ask for a patch that contains estrogen and progesterone or just stick with this one. I am a little scared of the progestin. I have heard it's not good to take???? I don't know, why does this have to be so confusing and so hard.
I was on a compounded testosterone gel that I used vaginally but I had an allergic reaction to it so now I am afraid to use anything that is vaginally. I was on vivelle dot 1mg of estradiol and I really liked it but I thought I would give this new patch a try but I didn't know that it contained progestin instead of progesterone. What can I do? Any suggestions? Is there a patch that contains progesterone? Sorry so many questions.
Thanks so much.
