SHARING IS CARING


Where do I apply my compounded hormone creams?Where do I apply my compounded hormone creams?


Your doctor or compounding pharmacist should provide you with directions on how to use your compounded hormone creams. The following is a list of generally accepted sites for application:
  • Estrogen: wrist, forearm, under bicep, upper shoulder, inner thigh, behind knee, on rear end
  • Progesterone: forearm, neck, breasts, inner thigh, under bicep, on rear end
  • Testosterone: wrist, forearm, under bicep, upper shoulder, inner thigh, behind knee, on rear end, and, if in a non-alcohol base, on the vulva/clitoris

It is important to note that:
  • Estrogen and testosterone should never be applied to breast tissue.
  • Application sites should be rotated for maximum success.
  • Creams should be applied where they will not come in contact with other people or pets.
  • Creams should not have any contact with water for 30 minutes after application.
