Need of low dose estrogen?
I read something in one of your articles or email responses that sometimes if symptoms don't improve after using progesterone, that you said a small amount of estrogen could be added in.
I have been following your suggestions of using 200mgs of progesterone a day, sometimes 250 for about 4 weeks. I stopped using an Estogen patch, a 00.25mg of the Vivelle Dot patch around the same time.
I ordered and used a tube of Natpro, and my holistic MD also prescribed a jar of mircronized progesterone from a compound pharmacy, 200mg for each dose.
So my question is:
1. When I initially put on the progesterone cream, either yours or the compound cream, I get a hot flash.
2. Could you clarify your thoughts on when a low dose of estrogen should be added in and when that should happen.
Thanks so much.
