For Acne "Recently switched from birth conrtol which kept my skin in shape to FemHRT for hormone replacement and guess what?! Acne! I will be on the phone at the crack of dawn to my gynecologist to change me to something that will help my skin as birth control always did. This is absolutely unacceptable to me."
For Postmenopausal Symptoms "I was given FemHrt by a Doctor I trusted and have no animosity against her, however after being on the drug for a year to help with postmenopausal symptoms, I got the news after a mammogram that I had DCIS breast cancer. My Doctor let me know and also said that three other women who she was treating with this drug during the same timeframe had also developed the same cancer. Mine was only stage one, but I was fortunate that they found it. I was treated with surgery and radiation, and while in surgery, my surgeon found another invasive cancer, for which I had to go back a week later to have surgically removed again! I had to have a lumpectomy as a result of it. I feel this drug is unsafe as three other patients in the same practice at the same time frame were also diagnosed with the same cancer. It has been 12 years since I was diagnoised. My Oncologist said I was cured. I am skeptical, and continue to get checked out yearly from my Oncology Clinic, just to cover my bases."
"I was on femHRT for four months and had BV (bacterial vaginitis) all four months...it worked well for symptom management but the side effect was horrible. On an antibiotic every month until we figured out that the femHRT was causing the BV. Stopped taking it, the symptoms came back but no more BV."
For Postmenopausal Symptoms "Femhrt worked wonderful. Had to wait a couple of months for the full effect so give it time. The only downfall is that it is expensive and does not have a generic."

For Postmenopausal Symptoms "This medication completely changed my life for the better. Also having a thyroid autoimmune disease, menopause was worse for me, a bad endocrine "cocktail" as it were, and I was for almost a year brought to my knees with 20 or more knee buckling hot flash episodes a day that caused so much joint and limb pain I couldn't walk, severe depression, was nearly bedridden from lack of energy and episodes that were almost anxiety attacks (never had them before). Within 3 weeks of taking FemHrt, it nearly all ceased. I got my life back."
