Daystar menopause cream?

Has anyone tried the menopause cream advertised on Joni Lamb's program on Daystar? I weaned myself off of Estradiol (on my own) because I had endometriosis along with fibroids when I had my hysterectomy 9 months ago. I don't want to chance any of it growing back if any was left. I stayed on for almost 6 months then went with half a pill for a month or so. Since getting off the Estradiol, I am having hot flashes, sadness and vaginal dryness. I have ordered the cream from Daystar and hope it will help. Just wondered if anyone else has tried it.

Re: Daystar menopause cream?

Did you keep your ovaries or were they removed at the time of your hysterectomy? It would help in responding to your questions if you could update your member survey to answer the question about ovaries.

The cream you're referring to contains natural progesterone. It can be very useful to women in perimenopause and natural menopause but not so much to those of us without ovaries - in fact, in women without enough estrogen who lack ovaries, it can make the menopausal symptoms worse. In addition, the cream contains red clover, which is a phytoestrogen -- you might want to talk with your DR about whether or not it's OK for you to use phytoestrogens given your endometriosis history.

Instead of just weaning off the estradiol, which apparently was handling your symptoms fine, did you consider talking with your DR about how to prevent endo from re-growing, possibly by adding some progesterone to the estradiol rather than substituting one for the other? That might have been more helpful in terms of symptom relief.

I did have both ovaries removed because of the endo. The doctor had told me he would keep me on HRT for about 6 months, but I don't go back to him for over a year. I don't have insurance and every time I go is a couple hundred, so, fearing the HRT, I decided to wean myself off. Would phytoestrogen be as bad as the Estradiol?

We really can't say... that's something your DR would have to tell you based on your medical history. If you've been told to avoid any estrogen at all, as some patients are, then I would avoid phytoestrogens.

He had me on Estradiol, so I guess it was okay to have estrogen. He said if the endo acted up I would have to get off immediately. I was just trying to avoid it before it happened. I tried to update my survey but it will only show me questions 2, and 10.
