Using cream for vaginal prolapse (to restore thickness to vaginal wall) but noticed excess hair loss the day after I use it. Can not afford the hair loss as I have just started menopause cream to help that (all natural progesterone and estrogen sources) about 2 months ago. Does estrace put estrogen into my blood stream or system when I insert it vaginally. only use 2 mg 2 x week.
grets; I also was prescribed Estrace after bladder and vaginal wall prolapse surgery done to correct mesh bladder sling surgery (very bad situation). Corrective surgery was done by two doctors. Prior bladder mesh doctor was not brilliant, or at least, did not tell the truth about mesh surgery complications. I had a hysterectomy 15 years ago so this is not a menopause issue. I will add, the cream did help the night time urge to empty bladder a great deal. However, I do not believe it is enough to justify that I have a LOT of hair loss after about 3 weeks continued Estrace use, plus, some other issues I have noticed lately. Likewise, I do not believe all these statements about Estrace not being absorb into the blood stream enough to cause other problems. I am experiencing lethargy, nervousness, less ability to stay focused, am more irritable! :), hmm, and have had ridiculous crying spells. Haven't done that since I was pregnant with last child. Even some balance and muscle problems. I am decreasing Estrace usage to once every other week and watch for any changes. I have read a lot online about progesterone levels being lower and pronounced harmone imbalances when taking forms of Estrogen. The side effects for me are enough for me to question use of this cream and I will further research including starting some form of progesterone or discontinue use of Estrace altogether. At my older age, (70), I may try some exercises for bladder issues instead. Anyone know how to add progesterone safely?
