    Confused?? Estrogen/progesterone therapy hot flashes worse!

    A year 1/2 to 2 years ago my gyno did blood tests She put me on 100mg progesterone & I believe lowest estrogen Vivelle patch. My main concerns at the time were moderate hot flashes, night sweats insomnia. After 2 months my hot flashes were getting worse. I stopped both Hot flashes went back to the way they were before therapy. . A couple of months ago I was at my Chiropractor, I told him my hot flashes were getting worse. More frequent & intense. He suggested Estrovera for the symptoms. My hot flashes were not complexly gone but less intense & frequent. I was so impressed I wanted to address my other issues I was having. He did an adrenal/hormone test. He put me on all kinds of supplements and PhytoB for estrogen/progesterone. After only 4 days I am feeling so much better with fatigue, mood, energy level etc. but guess what?? My hot flashes are worse! More frequent & intense. I thought hot flashes were caused by declining estrogen. If I am low in estrogen & taking more why would my hot flashes be getting worse?? It has only been 4 days. Do I need to give my body more time to adjust? Would the PhytoB be working this fast? Has anyone else experienced this? Please help.
