Weight gain etc: Most of my patients on Premarin (conjugated estrogens) do quite well as the benefits of taking it far out weigh the risks. Weight gain, bloating, breast , uterus cancer, blood clot , ht attack, stoke. These are all very uncommon in a healthy person taking this medication. If you have a uterus you will need to take Progesterone also but if you don't then u can just take estrogen which is safer.

No, but...: Your better option is Estradiol alone. Also 90 day supply $10 at many places, ie. Walmart and cosco! but the real reason is this! Premarin (conjugated estrogens) contains much more estrone than estradiol. Estradiol is the dominant hormone in non-pregnant females, while estrone is dominant only during pregnancy. There is strong evidence that Estradiol is better for females than the hormone estrone!
