Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/kIM2WW seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.

Wow, I didn't know bioidentical hormones could help someone out so much. Its great to know there are people like Suzanne Summers who are so enthusiastic about it. It seems like it would be very important to find the right practitioner for this kind of treatment. http://www.genemedics.com/hormonereplacementt...

>>>from Sandhya Pruthi, M.D.
There's a lot of interest in bioidentical or so-called "natural" hormone therapy for menopause symptoms. However, there's no evidence that bioidentical hormones are safer or more effective than standard hormone replacement therapy.
Bioidentical hormones are custom-mixed formulas containing various hormones that are chemically identical to those naturally made by your body. These prescription and over-the-counter products are marketed as being tailored to a woman's individual hormone needs, typically determined through saliva hormone testing. Manufacturers claim that bioidentical hormones are safer than standard, FDA-approved hormone therapy.<<<
You dumb women who make these silly claims are nothing more than evidence of the 'placebo' effect. You so want to believe this crap, they could (and maybe are) giving you stuff that contains no hormones, yet your desire to believe helps you 'feel better'.\\
>>>The power of positive thinking is not a new subject. The Talmud, the ancient compendium of rabbinical thought, states that: "Where there is hope, there is life." And hope is positive expectation, by another name. The scientific study of the placebo effect is usually dated to the pioneering paper published in 1955 on "The Powerful Placebo" by the anesthesiologist Henry K. Beecher (1904-1976). Beecher concluded that, across the 26 studies he analyzed, an average of 32% of patients responded to placebo.
It has been shown that placebos have measurable physiological effects. They tend to speed up pulse rate, increase blood pressure, and improve reaction speeds, for example, when participants are told they have taken a stimulant. Placebos have the opposite physiological effects when participants are told they have taken a sleep-producing drug.
The placebo effect is part of the human potential to react positively to a healer. A patient's distress may be relieved by something for which there is no medical basis. A familiar example is Band-Aid put on a child. It can make the child feel better by its soothing effect, though there is no medical reason it should make the child feel better. <<<
Get over yourselves. You're being sold a bill of goods by a simple minded huckster.
Makes about as much sense as that silly 'thighmaster' whe was hawking a few years back.
You are so incorrect as to not warrant a response, however if some woman needs real help and doesn't look into this proven Bhrt, that a has been around for over 50 years, because of your misinformation. I had to respond.

I didn't call women dumb. I called the women who believe in this snake oil 'therapy du jour' dumb. I don't care if it's Oprah or Robin McGraw. Oprah, as smart a woman as I've seen, has jumped on many 'latest and greatest' cure-alls for many things, especially weight related. From what I see, she's again pulling that wagon full of fat around with her.
Believe what you want. It wasn't that long ago that cancer patients flocked to Mexico to recieve 'Laetrile' treatments. They died anyway.
Just because it's fashionable and hip doesn't mean it works in a meaningful way. But if you think it does, it will. Mind over matter.
You'd be betteroff going to a Benny Hinn or Joel Osteenn and have them 'cure' you of your menopausal symptoms.
It's all snake oil.
My regular doctor recommended bio identicals years ago. i did not hear it from Anyone in TV. My overall general health is better and it is not a money making entity like the fda. Hinn yes snaje oil.
