Do you take oral estrogen, or use estrogen cream or patches? If you have tried more than one form of estrogen, which one did you prefer and why? It would be interesting to know your doctor's reasons for prescribing one or the other.
I am asking because the Hertoghe doctors only work with dermal estrogen. They refuse to prescribe oral estrogen as they claim it overburdens the liver, among other things.
I have been to see my OB-Gyn and was given a prescription to go to the lab and have my estradiol levels measured, along with my FH and LH levels. She believes my recent symptoms (profuse night sweats and hot more and more frequent hot flushes during the day) will require estrogen replacement therapy. I got the impression from what she said that she prefers oral estrogen.
That is why I'd like to learn as much as possible about the experiences of others.
