My gynaecologist suggested we try Femoston 2/10 for hot flushes. Has anyone tried this or a similar drug? For the past few years, I've been on Oestrogel and Utrogestan prescribed by Hertoghe doctor, but the hot flushes have been getting worse lately and therefore my gynaecologist suggested we try Femoston instead (I'm 49). However, I've read that you should not take estrogen orally, and the Hertoghe doctors advocate the use of bio-identical hormones. Femoston contains synthetic estradiol and progesterone. But I also read that this warning concerned older drugs, and that newer drugs carry much lower risks.
So I'd like to hear from others having tried Femoston or a similar drug; that is, synthetic HRT taken orally. If you've also used bio-identical hormones, how did synthetic HRT work compared to bio-identical hormones?
