Do you have any other diagnosed medical conditions? Usually, heavy bleeding and clots denote a woman as producing more estrogen than progesterone, so she has a hormonal imbalance, as reported by the NIH.

Estratest is back
35 Replies RSS
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. Last week I had to see my doctor for yearly visit and guess what?...Estratest IS back on the market. The same dark green pills as before and I am ecstatic. I have my prescription filled at our local CVS instead of Wal Mart, where I always seemed to get partial script. Hopefully now I will get my libido back and the relationship I used to have with my husband. Just wanted to let other women out there know that Estratest is truly back!! ## Hi Paulette, Thank you for sharing that information! Here's some additional information regarding Estratest: Estratest is a hormone replacement therapy medication that combines esterified estrogens with met...

Yutopar Aka Ritodrine

This drug was used for women going into pre-mature labor it was used to stop the contrations. Unfortunatly it had major side effects on the babies. This was an experimental drug used from 1980 -1990 and was then discontinued. I was given this drug and my daughter was born 6 weeks early, had her by c-section. I begin to notice around 12yrs old that problem were arising in her mental health, still not realizing that this drug played an important factor. I have found many women that this to has happened to, and I'm still looking for more families that this has effect. It is devasting and a nightmare for my daughter who is now 30 yrs. old. If you have any information I would really like to visit with you about your child. Thank you for reading this, we need to ban together for our kids....

Clomiphene dosage instructions
1 Reply RSS
I live in Taiwan and recently just finished a course of clomiphene citrate. But the instructions were in chinese so i think I may have taken it incorrectly. I took 1 tablet 3 times a day separately for 5 days. Was this incorrect and if it is does this mean it won't work? ## Hi everyone is different....my doc prescribed two tablets once a day for 5 days....start taking them on the first day of your menstrual cycle...hope that helps

I'm nearly 5 years in from my breast cancer diagnosis ... I was 34 I'm now 39 and at the end of October it will be 5years clear! My issue is I've had no side effects apart from slight weight gain and bad skin or skin changes , I've ended up with hyper pigmentation which I'd never had before not even during pregnancies but my worst side effect by far has only been affecting me for the last year and a half but it's pretty much constant uncomfortable feeling down below like when you have thrush, it's itchy and annoying but also lots of discharge much more than normal ... I've been advised to stay on it until 2029 !!! But I don't think I can, my oncologist said have a break and go back to it which I did and as soon as I stopped the thrush symptoms stopped an
