Probably will help you, but, replacement hormones take up to 3 months to completely level out in your system. If your doctor recommends that you come back in for blood work in 3 months, go and have it done. You also may experience mild side effects ( like nausea) for the first 3 months. Sometimes they prescribe a vaginal estrogen supplement cream to help with the dryness and weaker natural tissue. They used to have an estrogen/testosterone pill called Estratest. It worked well for libido, but, I did notice I felt more aggressive driving and had some hair loss. It boosted my system and I only needed the the estratest for a few months, then just went back to the plain estrogen. I keep reading that people can't get Estratest now, I asked at CVS and they said they still stock the generic.
