Has anyone tried Apri? Insomniac wants to know

Hi all,

I had TAH and ovaries removed in February 2007 due to borderline tumors. I am 39. I was not on HRT for first four months and had hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia . I have to support myself so no sleeping and having to go to work is a huge issue.

My surgean's office FINALLY started me on Premarin .625 in June. The premarin was great for hot flashes and night sweats, but I still had a hard problem sleeping. On a good night I wake up 2 times and can get back to sleep. But on bad nights I am up from 2am on....

Anyhow, they switched me last week to Apri with is a birth control pill (how ironic) with both estrogen and progesterone. Has anyone tried this? I am having mild nausea and haven't noticed a big improvement in sleep. I am starting to depend on Ambien to get me four hours.

I would love your advice!!! I don't want to call my surgeon's office again because I think they are tired of me by now.

I'm sorry that you're having problems getting the sleep you need. Are you feeling any better now that you've been using the Apri for a while? I don't know if there is another member using Apri but there are other members who are using other kinds of birth control for their hormone therapy. It's not the norm, but it's not unheard of, either.

I hope someone who can be helpful will be along to share experiences!

Thank you for your reply. I ended up switched back to Premarin .625 from Apri. The Apri was making me fill ill.

I am much better now.
