What is estrogen replacement therapy?

I would like to know if any of the estrogen replacement patches are made with natural ingredients? I ve heard that the Vivelle Dot is made from sweet potatoes? I had total hysterectomy w/lymph node removal due to endocervical adenocarcinoma. Thank you for your insight.

Hello,

Estrogen replacement therapy is the substitution of estrogen when natural production is low due to any reason including hysterosalpingo-oophorectomy due to carcinoma. I am not sure what is it made from but it has complete natural properties like estrogen produced in the body.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ashok Kumar, Psychiatrist
