: : : : I take estrogen and progestren so what will replace them? My doctor is a turd and won't tell me anything and I hav gained 43 pounds since I started taking these terrible drugs!!! HELP ME PLEASE!!!!

: : : I took hormones for 2 1/2 years, only had gradual weight gain, but had other problems so I quit them this past March. Have started using a progesterone cream, read about it in Dr. John Lee's book about menopause. (I think its called What Your Dr. Hasn't Told You About Menopause, or something similar). He has a website too.
: : : There are a number of different companies that make this cream, I use it twice a day, 3 weeks out of the month. Feel tons better. All my symptoms (hot flashes, etc) got better after about 2 months on the cream. Its supposed to normalize everything so your body uses the estrogen it does still produce - which is not very much, and comes mostly from the fat cells around your middle - which explains why we are genetically programmed to gain weight in this area. You might try it though. Good luck.

: : Do you still have your monthly's? Mine had stopped--that is why I was put on the hormones to start with. THANKS!!!

: In the last two years I've only had 2. Since starting the cream last March, I didn't even have spotting - until last month when I had a normal period just out of the blue! Nothing since, though. I'm 46 years old. HOpe this helps.

Thanks a bunch--I saw a web site for the cream--will try it!
