Post Menopause, Have all female parts and want to know if I should include Estrogen
by Gail Presson
I have been on a roller coaster ride with Drs and Hormones. I have been on Bio T Estrogen and Testosterone, and Bio Identical Progesterone, for about a year. Prior I was using Evamist Estrogen and progesterone pharmaceutical for about a year, I have only been post Menopausal for two years.
After the first year on therapy I began spotting, but that was my fault due to using to much Evamist. I found a new doc and that who is put me in the pellets and cream. I remained spotting off and on, but recently my Estrogen pellets have worn off. I remained on the cream and for the last two weeks I have not had any spotting. I am due to get another dose of Pellets, less this time, but I am wondering if I really need to? I heard that Estrogen is what slows down aging, but if I don't need it, because it builds the lining in the uterus then I may refuse it? My progesterone cream amount was 400 mg, but I have lowered it to 300 within the last couple of days.
I would like to know your opinion on this? I am 54 years old, and love remaining young.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice.
