How to use Biest

I was just given Biest cream and told to use it topically days 1-25. Having never used a cream I admit I don't know how much to use and where should I apply it for best absorbsion? Can anyone help?

How to use Biest

I use BiEst cream. I use it everyday, however. Do you have your ovaries? If not, I wonder why the 1-25... Oh well, anyway, most prescriptions are for 1/4 teaspoon (mine comes with it) once per day, or half that amount, once in the a.m. and once at night. I rub mine into my inner thighs after my morning shower (and previously after my evening shower). What I have left over on my hands I rug into my inner arms or backside. Works wonderfully for me.
Hope that helps!

How to use Biest

If you don't have ovaries, I would use it every day. Why would you cycle your hormones when there is no need to cycle? Once the ovaries are removed we are looking for consistancy and stability, by not using the hormones for a week or so I don't think you will get stability. Not to second guess your doctor, but I have my doubts about alot of patients having success with cycling once in surgical menopause. Perhaps the doctor was referring to his patients in natural menopause.

That said, I use bi-est and apply to my inner thighs. I had to experiment to find the spot that works best. I tried the upper arms for awhile, but my skin is very thin there, so I was absorbing it too rapidly. You may need to experiment and find the spot that works best for you.
