What kind of hormone(s) is the Vivelle dot?

What kind of hormone(s) is the Vivelle dot? Is it a bioidentical estrogen replacement or some kind of combined replacement if you know? I had my surgery on 2/14 and am definitely going through hot flashes insomnia, and I'm a little miserable (according to my family ...but what do they know). I have my Dr appt this week and am going to ask for bioidenticals. Since I'm not sleeping I have ben researching but it is all so confusing.

Re: What kind of hormone(s) is the Vivelle dot?

Hello!

Vivelle Dot is bio-identical estradiol. It's estrogen only, which generally is what most of us start out on after surgery. Once we get the estrogen balanced, we can add progesterone and/or testosterone, if necessary.

There are many bio-identical estrogen choices. Vivelle Dot and Climara are both popular choices of women on this website. You can read about other options in the "Estrogen Choices" articles in this resource: Hormone Jungle Articles.

Ask your doctor for samples so that you can try the product out before committing to a full prescription.

Best wishes for your surgery and recovery!

I am on Vivelle Dot and doing really good. So far no hot flashes and I am sleeping good. Ask you doc. about it and see if it's the right hormone for you. I hope you find something to help. Take care.....
