Estrace 1 mg??

OK HERE I go again. Dr. gave me Estrace 1 mg. to try. My question is has anyone been on this for a long time and DO you gain weight with this? I also take Progest (Natural Progesterone Cream) at night but have been taking that for months. It really helps me with my sleep. I had my estradiol levels taken and it was really low 13 pg/ml which doctor said was very low so I am HOPING that this bio-identical estradiol is what my body needs. Time will tell I guess. So any input on this Estrace will be appreciated. Phyllis

Sorry, I don't have any info for you. I just wanted to say I have the same question, so I'll be watching for the answers to yours. I am on 2mg of Estrace though. The dr. was going to up my dose of premarin because it was not very effective. But I asked him for another type of drug, and he said this one would have to be higher as it doesn't work as well. He was right! LOL So you may find 1mg to be too low.

Estrace 1 mg??

I have been taking Estrace 1 mg. for about 7 weeks now. With the exception of a 4 day switch over to Vivelle .05 (about 2 weeks ago). I liked the idea of transdermal dosage and was curious. WRONG thing for me to do. (If it ain't broke don't fix it)! I had headaches, nausea, tight chest, extreme fatigue. So back to Estrace for me, which I have done absolutely fine on. No weight gain, in fact I have maintained the 5 pound weight loss from surgery. Still some night sweats, but this is one of the hottest summers on record, so don't know if it's my hormones or not.

Estrace 1 mg??

Just wanted to let you know that I have been on estrace 2mg since Christmas and am doing really good on it. No hot flashes!
I had tried Estratest, Cenestin and Vivelle patch before this and this seems to be a good fit for me. I have not gained any weight and am 5 pounds lighter than I was at this time last year. I also use progesterone cream twice daily and am working on testosterone because I do have a small libido problem. Hope this helps you decide but I think everyone is so different that you just have to keep trying until you find something that works for you.
Good luck and let us know! Doodles
