Could you post the message here please? And your dosing schedule?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I'd like to stop using the Hormones altogether. I've taken them for over 8 years using the regular dosing schedule and am at the start of a new schedule of (2 lines Estrogen for 5 days followed followed by 3 lines for 5 days etc).
Expert:  Dr.M.D.Mazumdar replied 2 years ago.

Yes, you can stop the hormones - but you will need to taper off the estrogen gradually. If you are on 3 lines daily now, you can go back to 2 lines for 5 days from tomorrow. then one line daily for another 5 days and then stop. You may get a little spotting or mild bleeding after about 4-5 days of stopping the estrogen, butthis will be very mild and will clear up spontaneously in about 2-3 days.
