Dosage explained

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns about HRT.

Various estradiol patches are available. You can use 0.1 mg/day dose patches. Brand name minivelle.

Spironolactone (brand name aldactone) is available in strength of 25 mg to 100 mg. You can start with 25 mg.

I suggest you take these medicines under supervision of your doctor.
