Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I have experienced terrible hot flashes for over a year now. GYN said I was in menopause (at 51) so started on Prempo (1.5 mg) two weeks ago. Hot flashes are almost none, started my period this month after not having one in almost a year...bummer! My husband and kids say I'm more moody, and not myself. I've noticed I am less tolerable (that could be my age) of things I normally would be. Also, not as hungry as normal. Overall, I feel better so far, still early."

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I took prempro, for about four and a half years. I started at the age of 57 and it did help with some of my problems. But ended up gaining 50lbs and also, developed breast cancer at the age of 62. I have three other sisters and none of them or any other women in our family have had breast cancer. Think before you take this pill. I am know longer on prempro, and I have all my menopausal symptom back in full force."

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I have only been on this medication for four days, praying it begins to do its job and that I don’t get any side effects.. I have noticed a huge difference in dryness in a vagina which is awesome. My doctor said she believes it would kick my weight in gear and I should start losing, a little worried now after reading some comments however I have noticed a big change in my want to eat.. this is really good!!! Mood swings are still there as well so I’m hoping after 1 week I see a big change.. wish me luck"

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I started Prempro in 2009, still taking it 9 years later at age 62. I found it helpful for prevention of hot flashes initially, and now helpful for vaginal dryness and overall dryness. My OBGYN says I can continue to take it as long as I'm finding it beneficial. No problems at all. $30 a month is a little pricey, but worth it."

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I was prescribed .625 Prempro at the age of 38. I had early onset menopause. My body responded wonderfully to this dosage. I took me about a month for me to not feel groggy and light headed. After that subsided it's been great. I am 50 now and my doctor would like to start weaning me off to since I've been on it for so long. I am going to start half the dose to see how my body reacts."

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I had been on Enjuvia (plus a progesterone supplement) for 3+ years and they worked fantastic from day 1!!! Unfortunately, they have stopped making it for reasons I can't find. I was put on Divagel and I gained 15 pounds in 3 weeks, plus the leg (including my foot) I put it on swelled up like a balloon, among other side effects. I have been on Prempro for 6 days now and my hot flashes/night sweats are worse than ever, but all my other "problems" seem to be OK. The Dr.'s office said to give it a month, wish me luck!!!"

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I am a 56 year old women in post-menopause. I have been suffering with hot flashes for 16 years and I finally decided that I cannot do this anymore. I started Prempro two weeks ago and I am officially hot flash free and happier then I have been in years! I cannot believe that it took me this many years to do this. I was always scared of the risks involved. I am so happy I made this decision because my life is now amazing. I have not experienced and side affects at this point. Hopefully that will continue."

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "Immediately following my very last period I started having severe hot flashes. So bad that they made me jump out of bed. Changes clothes or I'd start freezing, even in mid summer. So started low dose Prempro. It took about 5 days to start helping. After taking it for about 8 months it stopped working. I even tried taking it twice a day a couple times thinking the dose was to low but still no help. So now Im going to go to another different doctor to see what else can be done to prevent my misery. Also want to mention that since menopause, I have zero Interest in sexual relations with my husband. I just wondered if anyone else has had this medication work then stop all together? Thank you for reading my story. I sure hope to find something"

Premphase (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "Premphase was awesome at controlling my postmenopausal symptoms and especially the hot flashes and night sweats~ It works great with not any bad side effects like some of the other ones that I tried. Premphase worked when I had tried everything else to feel normal again."

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I have been struggling with night sweats, flashes and mood swings. I have noticed caffeine and stress brings on the flashes. I haven't figured out what starts the night sweats, so i keep my house 70 degrees and below sometimes to sleep. I noticed that when I put a washcloth next to my bed (in a plastic bag not to ruin furniture) at night to place on my chest when the flashing starts, helps it to subside immediately. I am on day for of the Prempro and this stuff is awesome. The frequency of the flashing has decreased and when it tries to come back it isn't as intense. I think taking it the same time everyday has helped with that. I will sit down maybe an hour after taking the Prempro and it feels like I'm super relaxed or sleepy."

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for : "I started on Prempro on September 2, 2013 for my night sweats, hot flashes and mood swings. I was on it for almost two months. The first month was fine, but during the second month I developed way too many severe side effects. I had: swelling of hands and ankles, breast enlargement and pain, severe bloating, vaginal irritation, acne, my mood swings worsten, and I gained a lot weight gain. The night sweats and the hot flashes got better, but the side effects were much worst then the night sweats and hot flashes. I started on Healthy Woman Soy Menopause Supplement and it took care of the night sweats and hot flashes without all of the other side effects. This drug is definitely not for everybody and my advice would be to listen to your body!"

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Postmenopausal Symptoms: "I have been on this medication for 37 days. My day and night sweats are no longer severe.

My mood swings are gone, I am back to normal. LOVING IT."

Prempro (conjugated estrogens / medroxyprogesterone) for Oophorectomy: "I am 22 and underwent Oophorectomy surgery following 2 massive ovarian cysts on each ovary. Right out of surgery I was prescribed Prempro and had to take it. I experienced hot flashes for the first few days. The Dr told me that if I felt bloated I can skip a week and I will have a small period, which I have done. I had cramps and sporadic bleeding, but the bloating never went away. I have gained a lot of weight that has been really hard to lose and I have been on this medicine for only 3 months. I also have really bad acne all over my face that I haven't had since Junior High. Once I go back to the Drs I will be asking to try another Hormone Replacement Therapy."
