Difference is estriol cream or progesterone cream?

purty2December 15, 2001

Is there a difference in these creams? As to the benefits? Do they both help with sensation and with dryness?

I'd suggest checking out "What your doctor didn't tell you about menopause" and "What your doctor didn't tell you about premenopause" (or something like that, I can't remember the book titles exactly), by Dr. John Lee. He gives a really good rundown on estrogen & progesterone and what they do, and how to use the creams, when, how much, etc.
