I've been on Estring over 10 years with absolutely no negative side effects. Of course 15 lbs heavier but could be many factors, less active, wine etc! My question if anyone has ever heard of this is, has anyone heard of using this for such a long time. I once stopped for a couple of months and began the sweating, fogginess and the same feeling as if I were going through menopause again. My doctor seems to think I can use it indefinitely. Also mother and sister have had great cancer.

Hello, Janet! How are you?

The FDA warns that it does carry the same risks as hormonal contraceptives, including several types of cancer. The most common side effects are listed as possibly including headaches, increased secretions, and itching.

It is normal, however, to experience such symptoms due to the withdrawal of it, if you suddenly stop using a medication containing a hormone. It can take several months for them to go away.

Has anyone else used it for this long?
