Content of Femring...does anyone know if this is soy or yam based?

Hi all,


After almost 2 years on the Vivelle Dot 0.1, I have switched, as of yesterday to the Femring.

At present, can't say I am feeling all that great.

I have had a mild headache since yesterday. I am also more bloated than normal in my abdomen. I am also a little nauesated.

I think the Vivelle Dot is Yam based , but am unsure about the Femring...is it Soy based or what.

Should I give it more time or go back to the Vivelle Dot?

Thought I needed some expert advice from my hystersisters!

This website is a God send!

Thanks and to all.

Hi Sweet Pea!

I haven't been able to find anything definitive online yet about this, but my best guess is that it is soy based. The company which makes Femring also makes Femhrt. Both are estradiol acetate estrogens. Here's a link to a hormone chart which shows the base of various estrogens including Femhrt but not Femring: Hormone Chart. You'll see where it says that Femhrt is soy based. Here is a link to the physician prescribing information for Femring: Femring Prescribing Information.

You might want to call the company directly and ask, then let us know, too!

I think one day on any hormone therapy is too early to say if it's going to be the right one or not. Certainly if you continue to feel as you do or develop serious side effects you'll want to let your doctor and pharmacist know. Keep us posted on how you're doing, okay?

Hi April Dawn,

Thanks so very much for the hormone chart and I send an E-....interesting stuff. I saved it on my favorites list.

I did call the Femring manufactor today and yes, it is soy-based.

Today has found me feeling tons better and no headache.

My energy is wonderful and again, no joint pain.

Hopefully this is what I have been waiting for!

Just to touch base again, to let you all know, that I am feeing absolutely wonderful and wish I had made this change a long time ago.

I have not felt this good, even since prior to my hysterectomy.

The biggest change is the increase in energy and no more joint pain. For the first time in over a year, I am also able to wear my rings again, due to a decrease in fluid.

Thank God for this Femring!!!
