I stopped taking Estradiol 4 months ago on the advice of my

Customer Question

I stopped taking Estradiol 4 months ago on the advice of my primary care physician after 40 years of hormone therapy and wonder if the sudden onset of a Baker's Cyst and arthritis in my knee and finger joints could be a result of this sudden stop....I am a 69 year old female.

Thank you for your question.

The sudden appearance of Baker's cyst or arthritis has nothing to do with you stopping the hormone therapy.

So I do not think it is related and I think this is just a coincidence.

Let me know if you have more questions.

I have already rated this once. There was a woman physician who was to answer me for the dollar amount of $ I was NOT in a big hurry to get a reply...this is the amount I agreed to pay, and, as I stated, I have thanked and replied once already. Any higher charge will be denied on my credit card. This is the third or fourth email I have received concerning this...please let it be the last one.

Do you want me to continue helping you? I'm little confused with the above conversation you had with the other doc, so thought of clarifying before I proceed with my answer
