"Estroven" preventing bone loss?
I am 51 years old and have been diagnosed as having the bones of a 75 year old woman and I am also in menopause, suffering from night sweats, sleepless night, feeling hot and cold. Right now I am on prometrium (progesterone) and divigel (estrogen). I take calcium along with vitamin D. My concern is that HRT can be an avenue for cancer. I would like to possibly stop my regimen of HRT and try something natural. My question is, how effective is "Estroven" in eliminating further bone loss? My doctor wants to wait and see how the HRT eliminates any additional bone loss before prescibing "Fosamax" or any other drug of that nature. And I would also prefer not to take theses medications if I can go the natural route. Thanks for any input anybody may have to offer.
