Women's Health / Fertility Overview

Oestrogens or estrogens (see spelling differences) 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 desire,[1] and the suffix -gen, meaning "prod...

Developed allergy to EEMT, don't want to stop taking it.
Help. Afraid to ask doc, will probably want me to stop EEMT. I'm 69, feeling great, love the heightened libido, which I attribute to the continued use of Estratest / EEMT. Had a lot of trouble getting my last Rx, but it is still on the market, through ANI pharmacueticals. Have been taking it about 15 yrs. But now, have developed a rash, base of spine and nape of neck. Rash not too bad, itching horrid. Noticed that during the 5 - 7 days it is not taken in the cycle, rash starts to go away. Talked to pharmacist. No solution. Told me that Dr's are no longer prescribing estrogens due to all the warnings. Talked to ANI customer service. No solution, other than discuss with Doc. Maybe suggest the HS instead, but I don't want to lose all the benefits I have enjoyed with this medica...

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...

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...

dog ate one estradiol
My 65 pound ate one. 5mg estradiol will it hurt het ## Dear cheese, I would call the Vet, right away. ## @Cheese, Sorry to hear about your dog getting ahold of birth control. I'd imagine that must've been an awkward experience wondering how the dog might react in that moment lol. Although I see you posted this back in May, earlier this year. Do you have any feedback on the status of your dog now? To summarize my own investigation/research on the topic, the levels of toxicity for estrogen are not often reached via the ingestion of contraceptive pills, and is reported to be at dosages greater than 1 mg/kg of body weight. And please correct me if I'm wrong, but this means that a 25lb dog would need to consume quite a few of these pills for a toxic effect. So if I understand tha...

Neurobion Injection
I forgot to refrigrate them after buying for 12 hrs. Have they spoiled? ## Hi, Richa! Liquids tend to break down very fast if not properly stored, however, I don't have any specific information on this one. What I suggest is that you ask your pharmacist/chemist. They should have an answer for you. Does anyone else know more? ## This contains a combination of B vitamins (B1, B6, B12) and so if it does say to keep refrigerated there is a chance that it would lose its effectiveness after 12 hours. However that also depends on how warm the temperature of the room it was sitting in and also what the inactive ingredients are which I have not been able to determine yet. I agree with Verwon that it would be a good idea to double check with the pharmacist just to make sure. ## What is the no...

furtile 50 mg
I ordered clomid from a Canadian pharmacy and when I received the package it was sent from India the name of the clomid is furtile 50 mg . However I cannot find any info on these pills and now I worried they are fake has anyone ever took this clomid before is it legit or nah? ## I'm sorry, but I have been unable to find anything under this name, either. One of the hazards of ordering medications in such a manner is not knowing exactly what you will receive, if anything. Is anyone else familiar with this medication? ## I received the same thing! Have you used them? Or found out anymore about them? ## My cycle doesn't start until Oct 5 on CD 5-9 which will be Oct 10 for me I will start them to see if there good or not I will keep you posted.however they sent free generic Viagra wi...

side effects of regestrone tablet 5mg?
hi, iam 33years and having 8month baby .now the problem is iam getting periods for every10days only .for that my gynic prescribed me regestrone tablet 5mg 3 tabs daily for a week and 2 tabs daily for 2 weeks. but with this dose i am getting giddiness,over taking food,laziness,and littile bit this happens for me becoz of side effects of this regestrone tablet 5mg. ## Yes, Regrestrone contains the hormone Norethisterone, which is a synthetic form of Progesterone and you can experience these types of side effects with almost all of the synthetic hormone medications. If you experience a cycle that frequently, then it is most likely that you are low in Progesterone, so you've developed a defective luteal phase. Progesterone is the hormone that stabilizes the endometrial lining,...
