Estriol - where to purchase?

Hi,

New here. Am on Estrogel and want to supplement with estriol, as estrogel along is not working.

There are many products on the net and I'm confused. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best estriol? Also, a really stupid question - is it available by prescription? It would certainly be much cheaper for me by prescription as I pay only $20.

Thanks to all.

I would suggest that you talk with your doctor and see what the best solution for you is. I would be leary of ordering things off the net that do not require a doc's scriplt.

(((Mishmosh))) Yes, you can get estriol with a DR's prescription, from a compounding pharmacy. But what is it that you think it would do that your estrogel doesn't? Estriol is a very weak estrogen and it takes quite a lot of it for symptom relief. I would make a list of your symptoms and take it to your DR and see what s/he thinks would help.

How much of the estriol do you know to use?

Depends on how concentrated the particular cream is, what you're using it for and how severe your symptoms are - there is no exact formula. Estriol is a very weak estrogen, so if you're trying to use it for symptoms like hot flashes you'll need quite a bit. Vaginally it only takes a dab or so at a time.
