Ask a Gynecologist and Get Answers to Your Ob-Gyn Questions ASAP
do you still have your uterus?
what other symptoms are you having that the estrogen is not helping?
dryness at times not always also low sex drive
the estrogen certainly helps with making the vaginal tissue healthier and sometimes helps with libido, but it may not.
for the dryness I would recommend a non hormonal product that is available OTC called Replens...in addition to your estrogen treatment.
you may try an OTC product called DHEA, which is a testosterone precursor that usually bumps the testostosterone level and hence the libido.
if that doesn't work you can discuss a combination of estrogen/testosterone called estratest..with your doctor.
so those are 2 OTC thoughts you may consider...and if it isn't helping discuss the estratest with your doctor.
I had my uterus removed 4 years ago would this med be ok to use
yes..but I had to be sure because if you still had your uterus using estrogen alone could be dangerous for you.
but, since you do not have your uterus...estrogen alone is appropriate and preferred.
Ok thanks for the advice I will certainly give these a try and if no sucess I will contact my OB GYN again
