Estrogen or progesterone??? Thats the big question
I have one Dr tell me to take estrogen for my heart, minimum 1mg up to 2mg per day. I have heart attack/stints in the family. I have been told my lipoprotein number is around 300 and need the Estrogen. I was only on progesterone cream for almost a year when I was told progesterone is only for the baby and we dont need it after menopause.
I have put on weight with Estrogen, I am moody, and not really sure if the Estrogen helps or hurts the heart after menopause. I weaned myself down to 1mg per day and decided to take dim to help. I am putting 1 pump of your cream on in the am and 200mg capsule form at night to help sleep. I get different opinions from every Dr I talk to. Please help.
