Re: Sjogrens and Osteoporosis?

Patricia-I too am new to this. Estrogen implicated meaning post meno estrogen deficiency. Are you still on estrogen??
I am taking the vivelle dot .075 patch and only two months into treatment. Because I have a uterus , I will have to do progesterone and the thought is maybe the mirena IUD-but with my thin skin , I am thinking that is just looking for trouble. I may either switch to a patch with both esto and progest OR take oral progesterone ea. 3 mo.Since you had a hysterectomy that's not even an issue for you.
The researcher at the univ. said that post meno is a big time for women to get sjogren's.
