After menopause, hormone replacement therapy is given to counteract the effects of female hormone deficiencies that result due to stoppage of periods. These are given after a few investigations so that they produce minimal adverse effects. These are not recommended with estrogen blockers usually.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

I started using estradot 50 today. Hormone replacement for menopause and osteoporosis. I also using other medications for high blood pressure, topisalic lotion for my psoriasis, omega 3, calcium and vet d. My concern is it safe to interact with all the medications iam taking. Also I was taking apo-gabapentin100mg and pms-sulfasalazine ec 500mg for my bursitis, a month ago. I stop taking this medication because it lowers my white blood corpuscles .it never help my bursitis any way. My sister was diagnosed with breast cancer 2 years ago, and undergoing treatment .l am also have varicose veins but it does not bother me at all, it is just very visible on my legs. How. Am I safe with the hormone therapy that I am taking right now.
I am a triple negative breast cancer survivor. Diagnosed at 37. Started oral contraceptives at 15. BRCA1/2 negative. My 16 year old daughter would like to start hormones for period relief. What are the risks for her? Is there a version that is safer than another? Thank you.
My daughter is taking a hormone therapy for menopause symptoms that are in the form of pellets and injected every 3-4 months. The doctor says that this is a natural formula, based on her specific needs. What do you think of so-called natural solutions like this?
I have a l4-5 bulging disk. I have been diagnosed with spinal stenosis. I had two spinal epidurals. The first one worked and the second one did not. The second one caused vaginal bleeding. I had an ultrasound and everything was clear. I had cramps and bad sciatica with the bleeding. I am a breast cancer survivor and was on tomaxifen. Could endometrosis cause sciatica? My periods have been Been severe since my completion of tomaxifen. My ob/yn says my bleeding issues are a result of perimenopause and my vagianl ultrasound have been clear. I Am I crazy for trying to link the two problems?

I am a 71-year-old mother of two, rather healthy womyn, whose right breast began purring June 1 (it is currently June 11). The vibrations are intermittent from short duration to significantly long-term (perhaps 40 seconds). My question is: if I should consult a physician, which specialty? Gyn? General Pract?

Hi, I am 59 years old, still having vaginal bleeding and have had severe pain in my right breast for over a week. I don't have insurance so the thought of seeing a doctor or having test run is next to impossible. Is it anything to be worried about
