How old are you? I have heard that taking hormones can lead to a higher risk in getting breast cancer. How long in all have you taken hormones? I would talk to your doctor about that; I was taking unopposed hormones for only 8 months (I did not know they were unopposed) did not even know what that meant, went to see an OBGYN for menopausal systems (hot flashes, etc) and she immediately made me take an ultrasound of my female organs and a mammogram and sure enough I had a birads 4 rating for pleomorphic calcifications in my left breast, it has been almost two months, but this Wednesday I finally will have a biopsy to see if I have breast cancer. I had no idea about anything, expect the hot flashes and all that were terrible. I still have those, but help them by taking a "Black Cohash" it is a natural ingrediant that has helped alot. Ask your doctor if you can take that without raising your blood pressure. I understand, Hot flashes are a terrible thing to go thru, lack of sleep leads to extreme tiredness all day, every day. Good luck and please keep us advised.
Punkin, why cant you take the pill form anymore? It def sounds like you need to change off the cream. Ive been on the cream and its just not working for me...anxiety, hot flashes, body pain etc...Im very low in estrogen though. See if you can try something else or try lowering the dose etc..?
Started taking pill form about 4 years ago. Doctor prescribed the bio pill based on blood test. Later learned the saliva test was much more accurate. Also, was told the pill form was not good because it diluted too much going through the liver. I am definitely going to show my saliva report to another hormone specialist and will get the cream remixed elsewhere and try that. Still can't seem to find out if taking these could raise the blood pressure levels. Thanks for comments.
