Women's Health / Fertility Overview

Oestrogens or estrogens (spellings in British English and American English usage respectively), are a group of compounds named for their importance in both menstrual and estrous reproductive cycles. They are the primary female sex hormones. Natural estrogens are steroid hormones, while some synthetic ones are non-steroidal[citation needed]. The name comes from the Greek οστρος (oistros), literally meaning "verve or inspiration" but figuratively sexual passion or ...

Estratest generic on indefinite back order!
Could this mean it may no longer be produced? I had a complete hysterectomy in 2000 and nothing else has worked for me! HELP! ## Hi Msgirl, May I ask where you found information stating that Estratest Generic is on an indefinite backorder? I couldn't personally find any information claiming that it's no longer unavailable. However, I did find out that there was a shortage of Estratest's active ingredients: "Esterified Estrogens" and "Methyl testosterone" - but according to the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists, that issue was resolved in 2011. Source: Please let me know if you come across any more information. Thanks! ## Just today, my WalMart Pharmacist could only fill 7 pills. Then my...

Tamoxifen question
Has anyone experienced severe muscle spasms especially around the body beneath the breast. I have been on tamoxifen for 1 1/2 years and have experienced these spasms since I started. They are so bad they sometime take my breath away. My dr says it is not the tamoxifen. I have experienced ALL the listed side effects. ## Hello, Linda! How are you doing? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. No, that's not a known side effect of Tamoxifen. Have you had this checked out via x-rays or an MRI? You may want to consult a different doctor to get help discovering what's causing it. ## Thanks for the reply. I figured out the cause. I stopped the tamoxifen several weeks ago and the pain is almost gone. I think when the drug is completely out of my body, it will be complete...

was on amox clv for cat bite and now have itching and burning in pee and poop area
I was on anti biotic for cat bite and now I have itching and burning around the rectum and pee hole. Can I use premarin crème down there? Or can triamcinolone crème be used. also I applied the premarin there and now I don't have to wear pads for incontinence for a few days. Is that good? I don't have to urinate as often. Did do something wrong by trying this or have I just found a CURE for bladder incontinence. Any advice or info would be so appreciated. Thank you

Angelique Hormone tablets
I am in my late forties, for the last 3 month my period has been so heavy that I can't go to work. I am messing up my self, bedding etc. I need to know whether angelique would help me. ## Unfortunately, since I have no way of knowing what is causing your problem, I really can't answer that question. Angelique is a form of hormone replacement therapy, that contains Estradiol and Drospirenone and as such, there are some conditions it can help with, but it is not appropriate to treat everything. Have you consulted a doctor? Hormones are only going to be appropriate, if your condition is caused by a lack of the ones this medication contains. If it is caused by something else, such as ovarian cysts, then you would need the treatment appropriate to treat them. ## I 've been having...

Side-Effects Of Follihair Tablet
hello.. i have taken 5 tablets of follihair and i feel that few unwanted hair have grown on my face and neck.. though on scalp it did not show any efficacy.. its been only a week or 10 days that i started using it.. is it a side-effect of follihair..shall i continue using it or not??? ## HI, Sonia! Sorry about the problems you're having. Follihair is just a nutritional supplement that contains a variety of nutrients that are believed, but not proven to help with hair loss. Thus, the question I want to ask is… How old are you? If you have hair growing in unwanted places, but are losing it on your head, it usually means that you are too high in the hormone estrogen and aren't producing enough progesterone. Estrogen stimulates the production of testosterone, which causes that...

200 mg of Progesterone (yellow tablet)
So I just had a baby two months ago and have been patiently waiting for my period to start and it has yet to come, I'm a mother of two and dnt want any more kids so I'm planning on getting my tubes tied but can't until my cycle starts. I called my doc and he put me on 200 mg of progesterone for a 12 day period to induce my cycle. My question is how long does it usually take to start ur period after taking this medicine?

Day 1 of xulane instead of ortho evra
I HATE this new patch already. Did not adhere to my skin as easily as ortho and came off about 4 hours after applying. I've been on ortho evra for 5 months loved it and never once had a problem but I already can't stand xulane and so I don't know what I'm going to do ! :( My insurance switched me to xulane because it's the generic brand to ortho evra. This sucks I hate life. Ps. I'm 18 ## I'm 22 and I was on ortho evra for a YEAR and they changed me to this Xulane and good god I hate it. After a week of the switch I was in the emergency room passing clots and feeling like I was in labor, they thought I had PID and put me on antibiotics which kicked my ass even worse, but the bleeding stopped, and yesterday I was cleared to stop taking them because all my labs...
