(Denver, CO, USA)
I am 54 and have just completed a year with no period as of June. I started having hot flashes about 6 months ago. I started using progesterone cream (natural) and a natural estrogen cream. I used the progesterone every day except for the first 5 days of the month I took a break. I used the estrogen cream 3 times a week and also skipped the first 5 days of the month. Hot flashes went away. My question is do I need the estrogen cream? I keep reading about estrogen dominance and it's kind of confusing.
