Q & A

I’m having some peri-menopausal symptoms, and am wondering about the on-line progesterone and estrogen creams (bio-identical) you can order online. My insurance won’t cover the the types of testing I probably need, so I’m wondering if this is an alternative.  Thanks.

      But I’m guessing you still need to see your Dr ohhhh

    • Always see your primary physician first so they can test for your FSH levels, which determines at what stage you are at in perio-menopause.  It is very important that you don’t over do these types of hormones, whether they are synthetic or bio-identical.  The BEST books I have read on this topic are:

      But first go to your primary or GYN and get the testing needed to know what you need.  I am on the combi-patch at this time and it has done wonders...but I will not be able to stay on it. I do not have the money to pay a bio-identical doc either...but your primary or GYN might at least give you an idea of how much you can tolerate.

      Also check out my friend Carrie Pierce's web site called [Link Removed] she knows the ins and outs of bio-identical.

      If need more links or direction, e-mail me here.
