Hi XXXXX, thanks for the asking the query on XXXXXXX

The symptoms of premature ovarian failure are due to decreased estrogen levels. But in your case your symptoms increased even on increasing the dose of estrogen which is an unexpected phenomenon.

In my opinion you can try non drug measures to relieve your hot flushes and anxiety like phytoestrogens (isoflavones) and soyproteins. Soybean is a good source for both of these.

In case, your symptoms are still not relieved then you can consult your treating doctor for further changes in estradiol doses.

Good Luck.
Hope this information is helpful and informative to you.

Hi,

I am sorry to respond to your answer very late. I was very busy for the whole day yesterday.

As I told you, these hot flushes are vasomotor symptoms which are due to decreased estrogen levels and not due to decreased progesterone levels. So, measures( which I mentioned to you),to improve the levels of estrogen will help you.

Good Luck.
