questions about scar tissue ?

Hi Rosezella I think maybe you are referring to endometriosis? Estrogen can make it grow... which makes it tough for us surgically menopaused ladies because we need estrogen to help with our menopausal symptoms. Progestogens (which include natural progesterone and the synthetic progestins) can keep it from growing. So, if you had endometriosis, your DR may want to either have you not use any HRT for a little while, or use some kind of HRT that combines estrogen and progesterone or a progestin. Birth control pills are sometimes used for that purpose.

I hope this helps!
