Default Any wives or ladies taking hormone replacement?

The testosterone thread made me think of this, I've talked to few women in the office who have started this and it has really helped them. They said it helped their mood, energy level, libido, etc. Anybody here have experience with it? My wife wants to talk to her doc about it but is afraid of the cancer risk and side effects.

My wife has been on it for almost two years now. She is 38. It has got to be one of the best things ever. It's like a switch has been turned on. And I love it.

She gets a "tablet" inserted every 6 months. They had to adjust her dosage after the first one but after that very little side effects. She has to take another pill that deals with the side effect of growing hair and acne but she hasn't had either of those.

I believe it could be a marriage saver for some couples.

Transdermal cream. She's probably getting it from one of her holistic practitioners at a compounding pharmacy. Puts it on nightly. I know zero about it. If I start using it, I'll let you know. I seems to be working pretty well. She's in her 70's.

Seems like they could all use some type of estrogen blocker.

Estrogen can create the same problems for women that testosterone can create for men.

Does insurance cover the testing or any part of the procedure ?

Most of the places that specialize in hormone replacement / weight loss / wellness, usually deal in cash.

That’s great ! I may need to send mine that direction. I think some guys get it too but I’ll let her go first.

Insurance will cover the blood work. If you participate in an HSA, you can use it to pay for the prescriptions. Helps take the sting out a little at least.

Ive been prescribing test for women for years. If done correctly for the proper candidate, it is not only safe but has many health benefits. Everything you listed is accurate. If she is deemed a candidate i strongly recommend bioidentical hormone replacement with pellets. Much more effective than topicals.
