I have been on the cream twice a day

by Sherry

It really seems to help, I sleep better and my heart stops racing, not many hot flashes anymore. I just wonder is it bad on your heart, or does it at all cause cancer? I read it does not. Can you ladies tell me what you think? I feel way better. My doctor said you can take this for as long as you like. She says its good for you, it just makes you more balanced, just natural. Do get back, thanks.

Who is right, Dr's or Compounding Pharmacies?
by: Lucille, Elgin

Hi Sherry, good question and I would like another opinion too! I just had a complete hysterectomy for endometrial cancer and my Dr's at Prentiss/Northwestern, Chgo are very suspicious of my 13 years on bio idential hormones. They do not recommend any estrogen for me and say the progests will not do a thing and can cause heart problems if you get too much. They were very surprised that I developed the cancer in the first place because the estriol and progesterone were balanced. So, as I said, I am very confused too because I was feeling great on the bio identical and was shocked when one day I woke up in a bood stained pj's! The uterine biospy showed cancer! Now I am having hot flashes again and trying to understand what is going on out there in the medical world. Who do you believe, my dr's or the compounding pharmacies? Would love to hear back!

Hi Sherry. It's not bad on the heart, it's a very calming hormone, unlike oestrogen which is excitatory. There is no concern about cancer either, please see this web page. Your doctor is right, you can use it indefinitely. It's very protective against the oestrogen mimics which are found all over the world, 90 are known in fact, please see this. It is also beneficial in ageing, please see this. And this. Take care, Wray
