I purchased Clomid to help me and my partner conceive, but it came in these blister packs with no imprint whatsoever. Not to mention, they break REALLY easily, and they're from India, so I'm not sure if what Clomid does for fertility HERE in the US does the same for India... I don't usually take anything that doesn't have an imprint, but me and my partner are desperate. Can someone please help me with this? Should I take them or not? How much should I take and when? Thank you for your help. XO ## I am 42 years old. My question is. I would like to know if I will be able to conceive after have a laparotamy systectomy?having 1 ovary removed.

EST Estrgn Methtest .625/1.25 mg
18 Replies RSS
I am a 42 yr old woman and had a complete hysterectomy in October 2008. Within 1 year of my surgery, I began experiencing extreme hair loss. This November, my doctor prescribed EST ESTRN METHTEST .625/1.25 mg (in addition to the ESTRADIOL .5mg that I was already taking) to help reduce the hair loss. I was wondering if this medication is used for this purpose (as well as it's other benefits)? My mother is a breast cancer survivor (2009) & I am concerned about increasing my chances, by taking all these medications. Is it safe, or should I just accept my balding? ## This medication is a combination of Esterified Estrogens and Methyltestosterone, they are used for hormone replacement, to help with the symptoms of menopause or a deficiency in these hormones. Thus, yes, if the hair lo...

Tamoxifen from 5 to 10 years.
1 Reply RSS
I have been on tamoxifen for over 5 years. I was excited to go off of it from all the side effects. She now told me the new protocol is 10 years. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know WHY? I'd really like to go off it and am not sure what to do. I am perimenopausal, 49 years old and was diagnosed when I was 43 with stage 1 HER 2 positive. ## Hello, Marian! How are you? I'm sorry that you're disappointed. But yes, the new treatment regimen is 10 years, as they have discovered that there is a better response when taken longer, plus it helps prevent recurrence. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness and hair loss. Has anyone else had their protocol changed recently?
