Yes, health care was also high when i suffered four, yes four, heart attacks and had to have a stent placement in my heart. Also when I had to have a total hysterectomy because I developed hyperplasia ( a step before cancer ) from taking HRT which I was told would beneifit my body. It didnt get any cheaper when I had to have a cancer removed from my breast and six weeks of radiation treatments and later another cancer which caused removal of that breast. It was also expensive to suffer two strokes and go through another series of expensive tests at the hospital. It is also very expensive paying for the medications I am now forced to take which cost nearly $400.00 a prescription,( a month ) hoping that it will fight off the estrogen to save me from another outbreak of cancer. It isnt cheap either to have to buy the medications I take for osteoporosis which the HRT was said to protect me from. Isnt it strange that most of the conditions this HRT were supposed to protect me from, happened to me from sixteen years of HRT. Not to mention the discomfort and pain I go through wearing a prosthesis ( which costs over $300.00 each ) and the heartache of losing a portion of my body causing me embarrasment as well as agony and humiliation. Tell me about the costly medical care. I should be reimbursed for all these costs and also for the cost of sixteen years of paying for HRT and the lies that came with it.

Just curious, and obviously you don't need to answer. I am doing a purely unscientific study on if women also took birth control pills during their lifetime prior to these HRT problems. Did you?

Annon, No, I never took birth control pills. At this time I am fighting with the side affects of the anti- estrogens I have to take and battling with these side affects, which are many, including blood clots which likely caused the two strokes I had recently.

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/bLFWQG 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.
