I have bee on bio identical, compounded HRT for @ 3 years. I planned to face menopause ith out hormone help. But when my a fib got worse, I decided to give them a try. At first it was progesterone cream and greatlyimproved my energy levels. Then I transitioned to an oral estriol. Progesterone, DHEA formulation.
This past 18 months I have seen a dramatic increase in pain, which in hind sight was probably due to insufficient coagulation.
But I wonder -- does anyone know of a connection between BIOIDENTICAL hormones and increased risk of blood clots in APS? I'd like to start coming off these hormones, but I also don't want to upset any apple carts. Any info would help.
( and yes, I know the strong relationship between Premin and clots, but the bio identical cheerleaders claim their product has no such baggage. I am a skeptic.)
