What is "cyclic" hormone combinations? I've not heard of this. Since my insurance drug program has almost doubled the cost of my prescriptions, I'm investigating all possibilities for hormone replacement. I used to be on hormone cream & had to switch due to change in Mail Order Pharmacy. I'm currently on Estratest, which I don't like as well, and my cost will almost double.

Hi Lucette
Usually four weeks of estrogen with progestin added for the last 10-13 days. I hope this helps.

Estrogen with progesterone added into the cycle for women with a uterus. Estrogen alone may cause endoplasia of the the uterine lining --a risk for a uterine cancer. The opposing progesterone keeps the lining from building up.

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

But it is harmful for the body. Nowadays most of the women avoid HRT as it increase the chance of breast cancer, blood clots etc. So try to use easy and safe way to treat menopause symptoms.

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/9Me2E1 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.

Long-term hormone replacement therapy used to be routinely prescribed for postmenopausal women to relieve hot flashes and other menopause symptoms. Hormone replacement therapy was also thought to reduce the risk of heart disease.

Before menopause, women have a lower risk of heart disease than men do. But as women age, and their estrogen levels decline after menopause, their risk of heart disease increases. In the 1980s and 1990s, experts advised older women to take estrogen and other hormones to keep their hearts healthy.

Some data suggest that estrogen may decrease the risk of heart disease when taken early in postmenopausal years

chanelglass is right and the point of having a "cyclic" hormone combination is to mimic the natural release of hormones in a female with a normal menstrual cycle. You can find more information on the subject here: www.agemanagementoptimalwellness.com/womens-e...
