I am a bit confused
I have been using a bio identical progesterone cream on and off for 6 months. My gyn said I had a low estrogen level, even though she did not check them. I was presribed the Estring. No mention was made about using progesterone with it.
I continued to use the progesterone cream along with the Estring. I took the Estring out a month ago and started using the progesterone cream only. I recently ordered the Natpro cream and started using it. Now I am experiencing night sweats and hot flashes. I still have a lot of facial hair and thinning hair on my head. I have read several reports that state women do not need to take estrogen that we only need progesterone. I emailed a women's health doctor about my symptoms and she told me to use Ostaderm. Ostaderm has natural estrogen and progesterone in it.
Do I need estrogen or do I need to use more progesterone cream? I am using 1/4 teaspoon twice a day of the Natpro. Should I increase these dosage? My gyn won't order any hormone tests and I can't afford to order my own.
