why am I bleeding
I've been on medroxy for 3 years but stopped in oct 2013. I got a new doctor who put me back on march 2014, I started at 60mg a day because I bleed and don't come off my period. I got down to 40mg the week before last. Last week I started the 20mg. I had intercourse for the first time in a year on 4/5. Everything was fine. I had intercourse on 4/12. On 4/14 I started bleeding and have not stopped. My bleeding is increasing. My doctor told me to up it to 40mg again. In the past was only on 5mg at the most and I have never had this problem. I can't stop bleeding. I'm giving it until Friday before I call my doctor again to see what he wants me to do. This has never happened to me before. What could be going on? ## Hello, Nina!

stopped taking estratest
I stopped taking estratest about 3 weeks ago,i am having headaches, dizzy ,I passed out this morning,hot flashes,will be soaking wet in the morning,i had a partial in 1977 I am 64 yrs old,i am calling a obgyn in the morning,my dr can not give pap smears or estrogen.any suggestions. ## Hello, Shirl! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. Some of them were likely caused by the sudden withdrawal, when you are adding hormones, your body stops producing any of its own, so stopping abruptly may cause sudden withdrawal symptoms, just like that which happens with actual drugs. However yes, if you are passing out, you need to see a doctor as soon as possible. Why did you stop using it?

Beginning Tamoxifen
I started my Tamoxifen today. 1st pill of five years. So far today, so good. Y biggest concern (after the obvious) is weight gain. I have been in Weight Watchers for a year and have worked so hard in my weight loss journey. I am so afraid it will come back. Are there many cases out there of people maintaining their weight or is it that big of a side effect that it's pretty much guaranteed? Any and all comments would be appreciated!! Best of luck to the other ladies out there too. ## It's actually hard to say, because some people have been known to lose weight while taking it. Have you discussed the issue with your doctor? They may be able to help you find ways to mitigate such an effect. Are there any woman who can post that have already taken this and have experience with it? #...

Estratest is back
I had to change hormone treatments as Estratest was taken off the market. I have been taking estradiol for a year now and was not happy with it.
