Is bioidentical progesterone topical cream for arms just as good as taking a 50 mg bioidentical capsule at night before bed for menopause hot flashes?

Is bioidentical progesterone topical cream for arms just as good as taking a 50 mg bioidentical capsule at night before bed for menopause hot flashes?

Neither: The term "bioidentical" is a marketing tool, used to make people believe that these products are somehow better or safer than other forms of hormones. There is no good evidence that this is true. Most topical creams are not regulated by the fda, and so their effectiveness is mostly unknown. Estrogen is the much more effective hormone for treating menopausal symptoms than progesterone. ...Read more

See a colo-rectal MD after your baby is delivered. ...Read more

Vaginal dryness and luck of libido are my problems. Should I use estrogen pessary for dryness or progesterone bioidentical cream for libido or both ?

Hormones help: Given your symptoms, i agree that a combination of an estrogen and progestogen would probably help. Ideally, the lowest effective dose should be used. There's still no valid literature stating that "bioidentical" hormones have any advantage over standard preparations. ...Read more

Dark blemishes: older people who get a lot of sun, get dark marks on their face, arms and hand. They can be treated by avoiding the sun, and by trying to lighten the dark areas.
