I had a vaginal hystorectomy which ruptured. After 3 years of continued abdominal pain. It was discovered that i was riddled with endometriosis. After so much surgery to the vaginal area and bleeding after attempted sexual intercourse, which was extremely painful, my Dr put me on 2mg of Estrofem orally. I have been taking this for 3 months and have gained in excess of 5kg's wich does not respond to diet or excercise. Is there an alternative estogen supplement eg: patches, implants eg which could help to increase the thinning and damage to the vaginal wall without the totally unaceptable weight increase?
First and foremost, I would be more concerned with my health than a little weight gain. I would get myself healthy then worry about the weight thing if it is of great concern. I am one to talk, I know, but really what is more important? You might try natural hormone replacement therapy. Check with your pharmacy or ask you doctor if there is any other type of estrogen you can take. I am not trying to be rude. Just keeping it real.. My best to you..Kimmie
I am on the lowest dose of Femring inserted in the vagina which releases Estrogen for 3 months. The only side effect has been breast tenderness but my body has adjusted and the problem has just about resolved itself. I am prone to fluid retention but diet, fluid intake and exercise help. I starte Femring 6 months ago.

What time of the day do you think is best to take Activella (Estradiol/noreth ac) or does it matter?
