A 47-year-old member asked:

is 0.625g of premarin (conjugated estrogens) a lot?

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!

Hot flashes.: You probably have a hormone imbalance. Call your doctor and discuss the balancing of your hormones. This is complex and needs frequent medical visits.
A 37-year-old member asked:

Is estrogen higher or lower during pregnancy?

2 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Cayce Jehaimi
Pediatric Endocrinology 21 years experience
High: Preganancy is a state of hyper estrogenism or high estrogen state, mainly due to increase estrogen production by the placenta (called estriol). The rise of estrogen leads to various physiological changes in the women's body including lowered tone of the esophageal sphincter, hence why heart burn sensation is common in the early stages of pregnancy. Good luck.

Totally different: Progesterone and estrogen are quite distinct steroidal molecules secreted by the ovary as well as other entities in the body. The functions of these hormones are quite distinct.
