Reviews for Divigel
For Postmenopausal Symptoms "Taking .25mg 1/x daily. Thought I could get through radical hysterectomy without HRT and suffered 8 months with minor symptoms as hot flashes, but most significant was major depression. Mental chemistry balances out within 30/60 minutes of Divigel application. To date not noticing any side effects."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I was having severe perimenopausal symptoms and my doctor gave me Divigel and within 2 days every symptom was gone. It's a life saver. I then had a total hysterectomy Ovaries included and had 1 hot flash cause I forgot to use it for 2 days after surgery and haven't had another symptom since and I make sure not to forget again. I take 1.25mg and it's the greatest thing ever. No side effects at all. Love it!!!"

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I used Divigel for a few weeks. I've been having pre menopause symptoms. I had a hysterectomy but still have my ovaries. During this time I started having severe stomach pains and my ovaries hurt. The doctor performed a ultrasound. I couldn't believe the pain. The doctor told me that I may need my ovaries removed. I decided to stop using Divigel and the pain stopped. I wouldn't recommend this medication."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "Hysterectomy at 26. I've been on HRT for 30 years and medications available have changed with time. This is the best I've tried so far."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "After a surgically induced menopause, the onset on hot flashes and night sweats was so fierce asked my nurse practitioner what works. She mentioned Divigel. I started on the lowest dose and actually felt like myself again within one week of use. Keeping in mind you want to stay on the lowest dose possible, she reminded me that this is to cut down only on the severity of those hot flashes, not get rid of them entirely. I am so happy on this HRT. Just apply to your upper thigh once daily and that's it!"

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I have gallstones, this medication bypasses the liver because it is topical. I also lost 4 pounds after only a week and a half. I started on the lowest dose. Next week I will try a slightly higher dose, although my night sweats have decreased I am still experiencing some hot flashes. Sleeping through the night is great, no more getting up three times to pee. It works great for vaginal dryness and urethra atrophy. Thanks Divigel!"
