Divigel Overview

Estradiol (E2), also spelled oestradiol, is an estrogen steroid hormone and the major female sex hormone. It is involved in the regulation of the estrous and menstrual female reproductive cycles.

Estradiol, menopause, Tamoxifen, Breast Cancer

I had lost my Uterus at 42 and kept my Ovaries with the idea that I would ease into Menopause. This was not a good plan.

Can I Stop Taking Divigel

I'm 61 and have had a hysterectomy 30 years ago. Is it safe for me to stop taking divigel? ## HI, Marlene! Are you taking just the Divigel by itself?

Have you had any symptoms, such as weight gain around your hips, stomach and thighs that you can't lose? Hot flashes? Night sweats? Headaches? Feeling irritable or emotional? If so, then that will likely give you your answer, since they are most often caused by too much estrogen. Up until a a few years ago, conventional medical thinking was that such symptoms were caused by the decrease in estrogen that occurs after menopause, be it natural or surgically induced. However, it has since been discovered that such symptoms are...
