TF: The medication I took was called EstratestHS. The formula I'm on is called HS or halfstrength comes with 625 mg testosterone and 625 mg estrogen. The only other one they show at their website (www.solvay.com
) is just called Estratest so they must consider it the full strength (I can't imagine taking more than the half strength.) About six months into it I started taking evening primrose oil because I read that it prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone which is responsible for male pattern baldness and that it should help with stopping hairloss. Whether I accomplished my goal, I don't know but like I said I have new hair growth and it seems that the hair loss will probably completely reverse. So, I'm not sure if it was the evening primrose oil or cutting down the dose to fewer times a week that helped the situation. But since it seemed to reverse so quickly after stopping Estratest, I'm inclined to think it was the Evening Primrose Oil. One more thing, my complexion was horrible on said medication too. Just curious, what dosage are you on? I don't want to be too nosey but has it helped the libido thing? (answering is optional, of course.) Helped not at all for me!! Not even one little fantasy! LOL Thanks for everything Tree Frog. I'm so glad you're feeling better.
PS I had an endo appointment this morning. He did blood work for my thyroid so we'll see what it says. I lost my endo of many years (passed away) this fall so I've had to find a new one. I'm anxious to see what the blood work reveals since Levoxyl that I've been taking has changed a little and I've been taking the new one for about 5 weeks
