Compounded Estriol?

Hi,

Doctor recently prescribed compounded estriol cream
1mg/gram once a day. I have tried different estridiol
patches, gels, and spray. The side effects were horrible.
I have become very sensitive to estridiol.
Doctor thinks estradiol is not my friend but estriol could help with hot flashes and night sweats.
Has anyone tried compounded estriol cream? If so, what is your dosage and did it help with the hot flashes?

Re: Compounded Estriol?

I've used compounded estriol cream vaginally, and it works well for vaginal dryness. However, as far as dealing with systemic symptoms like hot flashes, estriol is a VERY weak form of estrogen and it would take quite a bit of it to provide relief, at least for me.

s,
-Linda
