Re: What kind of specialist?

Hi Kathy!

It really doesn't matter what specialty a doctor has--the trick is finding a doctor who is knowledgeable about prescribing hormones for women in surgical menopause. My hormones are still prescribed by my gynecologist and he's willing to work with me--also an important factor.

Some women find a knowledgeable doctor by calling a compounding pharmacy to ask which doctors use their services. If you don't know where the closest compounding pharmacy is, you can register to use the free locator on this site: www.iacprx.org.

Options other than Vagifem for vaginal estrogens include Premarin cream, Estrace cream, compounded vaginal estrogen and Estring, which is a vaginal ring inserted and left in place for up to 3 months of continuous release of estrogen.

I hope this helps!
