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...

why won't prescription coverage cover estratest or eemt?
My doctor just renewed my prescription for eemt (originally estratest) but my insurance won't cover it and the pharmacy said it would be $407.00 for a 90 day supply. I can't afford it any longer. I have used estratest &/or eemt for many years and it was the only thing that works. My hot flashes and night sweats are miserable. The pharmacy said it was not "Obama care" that cut off our HT. ## Hello, TutuTerri! How are you? Many insurance plans are starting to question covering HRT, due to the possible risks that can be associated with it, such as cancer and cardiac events. Especially, if you've been using it for years, most women don't need it for that long, they use it for awhile, until they are through menopause and things settle back down, then they stop tak...

Osphena Why the bias???
Can't understand the bias from the makers of Osphena. The cost is prohibitive yet and don't ask me why but if you have private insurance even though they won't cover the drug Osphena offers DEEP discounts. If however you have Medicare or Medicaid you don't qualify for any discounts EVEN though we would ALL be willing to pay out of pocket if it works. I speak from experience. I can't try it under the same DEEP discount???? What women over 65 don't enjoy having intercourse?? Or disabled women?? If it worked I would be willing to pay the 177. per month so why can't I get the same benefits???? ## Hello, Luanne! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you've run into. However, that limitation is not actually one imposed by the manufacturers, but by t...

Primolut Nor
Hi! I want to postphone my periods. They are always regular . I had my last periods on 16th april( was 1st day) . Now if i have to take primolut nor 10mg from when do i have to start the dosage? From which date i have to start in this month to postphone my periods.thanks ## Hi rrk, Based on my research, Primolut Nor (10 mg) contains the active ingredient Norethindrone; which is a molecule used in some combined oral contraceptive pills, progestogen only pills and is also available as a stand-alone drug. It is a progestogen and can be used to treat premenstrual syndrome, painful periods, abnormal heavy bleeding, irregular periods, menopausal syndrome (in combination with oestrogen), or to postpone a period. It is also commonly used to help prevent uterine hemorrhage in complicated non-sur...

Belladonna Alkaloids/Bellamine-s
Hello, trying to fill my script for Belladonna Alkaloids/Bellamine-S. My former physician gave to me for hot flashes and sweating which provided much needed relief. Literally, I was able to return to my normal daily functioning. This is key as I am a twenty four hour caregiver to my autistic daughter. My new provider does not believe in this, and won't prescribe for me. Nothing has changed in my drug regimen, as was with former provider. Any advice or resources you may be able to provide is most appreciated!

re: how is it compared to Zovia 1/35's
Can you tell me how this product compares to Zovia 1/35's? Details, please. ## Hello, Karla! How are you? These oral contraceptives are exactly the same, just manufactured by different companies, so they are available under different trade names. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, bloating, irregular bleeding and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

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.

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...

I am 46 and had regular monthly periods for many years. Two years ago I had regular periods except straight blood flow constant for two days like wetting my wants. Then two days of blood clots. Then no period until the next month. I assumed getting close to menopause so assumed it was normal. This summer I went to on gun and told her I was wearing three pads at a time, four layers of clothes, and still having leaks every hour or two. She ran both types of ultrasounds found a cyst on the ovary and put me on 10 mg of this from day 15-26. Didn't know what that meant and wanted a second opinion . This doctor said same thing except to take the same med everyday not just days 15-26. Everyday sounded easier to figure out then the specific days. However since being on this drug I have gaine...
