HRTs approved for osteoporosis

I am currently using Vivelle Dot (two .1 mg patches). My doctor is going to discuss a new gel with me at my six-week appointment next week. One of my biggest concerns is prevention of osteoporosis since all the women in my family have it, and I have numerous other risk factors. I can't find any information on the gels that say they are approved for prevention of osteoporosis. The patch clearly states that in the literature.

Does anyone have any information on this topic? I don't think my doctor has a lot of experience with HRT, so I'm trying to make sure I take an active role in my health.

Thanks ladies.

Hi

It is the estrogen that protects against osteoporosis. I don't know what gel you are referring to, but if it has estradiol in it, then it is the same protective hormone that is in the Vivelle Dot.

Good for you for taking a pro-active attitude towards your health

Thanks for the response Kay. I'm nit sure the type of gel but I think I'm happy with the patch. It's all so confusing.

Amy,
I think you are referring to Divigel or maybe Estrasorb. If you're happy with the patch I would stick <pun intended > with it.
