Hormone Patches

I need some names of good hormone patches that are not bioidentical as there is not a Dr in my area that deals with bioidenticals .

Re: Hormone Patches

I think what's confusing is that patches and some other HRTs actually are bioidentical hormones, but "Bioidenticals" can also mean the custom creams made special for each woman, involving testing, special pharmacists, etc. Usually when Drs say they don't deal with Bioidenticals, it's the creams they are referring to. If they prescribe HRT at all they use Vivelle Dot, Climara, Estrace, and others that actually are bioidentical but in standardized doses to choose from. I know it's confusing but I hope my explanation helps a bit. I'm sure someone else can explain it better than I have.

Re: Hormone Patches

rgp500,

greyown did a great job explaining bioidenticals.
Bioidentical is sort of a made up word that is used in different ways by different people.

Talk to your regular gyn about estradiol or any of the patches greyone listed. You can probably get one of them from your .

There is lots of info in 'Articles' under 'Menopause.'
