Full Hysterectomy

by S

I am 53 years old and had a hysterectomy at age 32. I have been on Estrace until 4 years ago and my doctor changed it to Estracetest because he said I needed progesterone. In the last year I decided to try a progesterone cream instead and ordered it from Walmart. I am using it at this time but am having hot flashes and night sweats which I never had all the years I took HRT. I will be ordering your Natpro cream as I have read that it is a better cream than what I have. But how much should I use? Right now I have the pre-measured dose.

I should mention that I have just read about the customer who has the calcifications in one breast. I have them in both breasts.

I would appreciate any info you could give me.

Hi S Estrace is oestradiol, one of our oestrogens, but Estracetest does not contain progesterone. It contains testosterone... 'esterified estrogens and methyltestosterone', see here. Testosterone has a dark side in women, see here, here, here, here, here here, here, here, here, here and here. It appears you are using too little progesterone, you don't say how much. I recommend 100-200mg/day, for more info please see our page on Menopause. It's essential to read our page on Oestrogen Dominance before you start, as this can occur. Particularly when increasing the amount. I've found hot flushes need about 400mg/day for 4-5 days, then reduce the amount very slowly. Progesterone does help fibrocystic breasts, see here, here, here, here, here and here. Take care Wray
