Estradiol oral after srs
« on: July 13, 2020, 11:33:21 am »
Hey, im wondering about taking estradiol after srs. My srs was in 2014 and i have been in hrt now more than 8 years. I take estradiol Zumenon. Before srs i took  <Removed dosage, not allowed> daily and after srs i have been switching between <Removed dosage, not allowed> daily. In my country in Finland they recommend that people after srs do not have to take much estrogen because of all increased risks for breast cancer etc.. I really don't know how much other girls that have gone srs take estrogen daily. Now i take <Removed dosage, not allowed> daily and i don't feel very well. Do you know if it's okey to take <Removed dosage, not allowed> daily again?  <edited by moderator>

Talk to your Endocrine after blood work to see what Endocrine recommend since everyone body is different ways handle Estradiol.

Do you know if it's okey ...?

Dear Aleida_bella,

It is recommended to take the lowest dose of Estradiol that will get you the blood levels you need.
This is not just specific to Finland, but also, most every where else in the world. There are side effects of Estradiol that include cardio vascular problems and thyroid issues in addition to the risk of breast cancer.

Keeping your Estradiol blood levels as low as possible while still maintaining your desired results is considered good practice. An annual physical with a mammogram every two years is recommended.

I had my GCS about 4 years ago and I told my Doctor that I wanted an Estradiol blood level about 100 pg/ml which is typical for a pre menopause woman. She agrees with me and she tests my blood levels every year. The dose she prescribes depends on my Estradiol blood levels and is specific for only me.

Your doctor should be doing the same. If you are not feeling well with your current prescription, you need to have a talk with your doctor.
