Customer Question
I am 49 and...

I am 49 and had my ovary removed along with a dermoid cyst in January. I had very low hormones before surgery. Now almost zero estrogen and progesterone. Have tried oral prog and estradiol with nausea, breast tenderness and severe headaches a bout 6 months ago. Tried Combipatch lowest dose and had heart palpitations, restless leg, above average anger almost rage (very atypical). I only lasted 4 days on it. I take psychiatric drugs for bipolar. I'm wondering about natural progesterone cream and soy estrogen (not bioidentical)

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Have you noticed any swelling?

Swelling in what area?

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

History of SVT. I also have no thyroid - Radioactive Iodine at 25.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Natural. Estrogen cream will be a waste of your money. There’s no soy estrogen but soy products can help with your menopausal symptoms. A good over the counter product is estroven.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
