Not necessarily. Everyone is different. If Menest works for you, doesn't necessarily mean that Estradiol will also.

Re: Menest is soy and yam based

I agree with (((Kim))), and even though Menest and estradiol are plant based estrogens they aren't the same. Menest is considered an esterified estrogens product. It isn't bio-identical whereas estradiol is. So, they aren't necessarily going to work the same way for you. That's part of why finding the type of estrogen that works best for each individual can be tricky, not to mention finding the best dose and method of delivery.

I hope this helps clear up any confusion.
