Question - Hormone Cream/Gel? Hormone Cream/Gel?

My hysterectomy is tomorrow (jan.21) and I"m having everything removed, including ovaries. I'm 54 and going thru menopause, so I already know about the heat flashes. However, my doctor tells me that they could get much worse after surgery, and if so, she can prescribe me a hormonal gel/cream that you rub on your arm?? Anyone else familiar with using this? And if so,,,what are the risks with this type of product, compared to the hormonal scares otherwise?

Re: Hormone Cream/Gel?

Deb,
First, best wishes on your surgery tomorrow.

I am assuming that your doctor is talking about Estrasorb or Estrogel. While I haven't used either of these two products, I do use a compounded hormone cream for my ert. For me; it has worked well. Do keep in mind that everyone is different. It is a place to start.

You can read more about hormones in the articles at www.hormonejungle.com



P.S. I've been using hrt for 11+ years now, with my doctors blessing and after the media scares, which IMHO were just that scares, and hysteria by an uniformed media.
