estrogen along with progesterone
I am 56 and have been in menopause for a while. I still have my uterus and everything else down there. I have had no trouble with any kind of menopause symptoms besides being very "dry" down there. My dr put me on a very small dose of estrogen cream to use that would thicken things up down there after a while. My question is if I am taking estrogen shouldn't I be taking some progesterone too?
Dr said no since I am not pg and I dont have any other symptoms besides the dryness which the bioidentical estrogen I just got on should help. Couldnt afford the premarin so am on Estriol 1mg. But don't you balance the estrogen w progesterone? I don't understand this hormone business at all. Please help me.
