Premarin=Horse Urine???


I heard this. Is it true that Premarin is made from horse pee?

Re: Premarin=Horse ****???

Yup.

The term Premarin comes from a derivative of PREgnant MARes urINe.

The estrogen is taken out of the pregnant mares urine and used to make premarin. That's the reason that so many women are now trying natural methods to control their menopausal symptoms. They don't like the idea of putting mare urine in their bodies.

Many are now trying vegetable based hormones like progesterone cream etc.

I have been on the Estraderm Patch, works like a champ for me, no side affects and no horse urine!

Re: Premarin=Horse Urine???

I was given Premarin in 1996 after my hysterectomy, too many side effects. My gyn Dr prescribed Estratest HS, it's worked wonders with no side effects.

Re: Premarin=Horse Urine???

Many women stopped taking Premarin after it was exposed as a CRUEL and ABUSIVE practice for the horses too. These poor animals were treated so badly. Left in stalls so small they couldn't turn around, feces that were hardly ever removed from their stalls, feet that were never treated. To add insult to injury, their foals were taking away as soon as they were born. You see the PEE has to be collected while the mares are PREGNANT!!!!! Then they breed them right away again.

I took estratest as well. It stopped working for me. This is when he put me on Premarin.
