Divigel??

At my post op today, I mentioned that I wanted to try a low dose HRT to help with my incredible mood swings. My doctor prescribed Divigel, less side effects, etc.

Well, when I went online to read about it, their website mentions only hot flashes, nothing about irritability....

Anyone familiar with this stuff? It's a cream/gel. Since it is estrogen, would that mean it should help level me out??

Thanks!

Divigel??

It is gel estrogen (bioidentical). It should do all the things any estrogen would do, hopefully helping with the irritability. You may eventually have to add progesterone and/or testosterone. My only problem with it was headaches. Apparently I can't take straight estradiol. I do better with bi-est (estradiol and estriol).
Hope this helps you.
