Is there an alternate medication for Etratest? Had hysterectomy in the past

The doctor who was providing my Etrastest is no longer in practice. Is there an over the counter medication like Estratest I can take? How can I get the prescription for Estratest refilled ASAP, when I haven t even FOUND another OBGYN yet? I had a total hysterectomy 8 years ago and am in excellent health. No other medications taken at this time.

What you were receiving was hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Whether to give HRT and how long to give HRT differs from individual to individual. It has many adverse effects including cancer. DO NOT get the prescription refilled. Kindly consult a gynaecologist or endocrinologist .
