What can a male age 21 do to reduce/ get rid of facial/ body hair without laser hair removal and that is relatively inexpensive should I take estrogen? Or is there another solution

Hair removal: I would not recommend estrogen as there can be many undesired side effects. You could try using nair. There is a device called the nono but I have no experience with that. Laser hair removal is by far the best method and has become quite economical.

Excision&Liposuction: Estrogen grows breast tissue, low testosterone in relation to estrogen will too. Causes of gynecomastia (man boobs), include obesity, pot, ace inhibitors, various other drugs, and phytoestrogens present in soy and processed foods. A combination of liposuction to the breast and surrounding area, & direct excision of breast tissue are necessary to insure a good result. Results, reviews of surgeons!

Gynecomastia: The appearance of breast development in a male is usually called gynecomastia, which means a growth and/or prominence of the breast tissue. Most of this growth usually occurs in fat cells and may just be a result of being overweight. It can also be induced by certain medications (tagament, spironolactone, proscar, (finasteride) etc). There is no good medical treatment. If you really want them gone, then surgery.

Can dim /di-indole-methane/ supplement that balances estrogen levels, help get rid of gynecomastia?

Can dim /di-indole-methane/ supplement that balances estrogen levels, help get rid of gynecomastia?

Balancing estrogen?: Maybe. There's no good studies ; little theory; it's targeted for bodybuilders abusing steroids. You're an adult now. You're also taking prednisone, which I must suppose is prescribed by a physician for something really serious. Your life is too difficult already for you to be called "the guy with the __s". You owe it to yourself to have definitive treatment, which is office surgery.

Is atrophic vaginitis discharge usually white? Can it come and go or is it continuous? Will a vag moist get rid of it or do you have to use estrogen?

Usually no discharge: Vaginal atrophy is usually associated with dryness and inflammation rather than discharge. Moisturizer is a good start, vaginal and systemic estrogen will help, and there is new laser therapy for atrophic vaginitis as well

Not clear why: The important question is why your doctor ordered an estrogen level which is not an easy test to interpret, especially if a "total estrogen" level was ordered rather than an "estradiol". If the reason was for gynecomastia, there might be a reason to try Arimidex (anastrozole) to lower E levels and try to shrink the amount of breast tissue but effectiveness of that drug for gynecomastia is quite variable.

I sometimes get sad but is that enough to need to take estrogen to prevent postpartum depression?

Sad or depressed?: It is unclear if you are having enough symptoms of depression to make it advisable to take measures (whether hormonal or prophylactic medication) to prevent postpartum depression. Getting sad periodically is normal, especially if there is a reason. In order to address this individually, see a mental health professional with expertise in perinatal issues.

Does estrogen + progestin prevent cognitive decline?

Doesn't seem to: Hormone therapy seems to have little or no effect on cognitive function. Estrogen + progestin or estrogen alone are not recommended for women at any age to prevent cognitive decline. Hormone therapy appears to increase the risk of dementia when started in women who are 65 or older.

How does estrogen in contraception pills prevent fertilisation in the first place?

How does estrogen in contraception pills prevent fertilisation in the first place?

Works in pituitary: The estrogen in the pill alters the normal feedback to the pituitary gland, which in turn prevents the changes (rise) in fsh (follicle stimulating hormone) and lh (luteinizing hormone) levels which lead to ovulation, which is the release of the egg from the ovary. Since the egg doesn't leave the ovary, it is not physically accessible for the sperm to fertilize it.

Why is it bad to go through early menapause? Why is it important to take estrogen after a complete hysterectomy to prevent early menapause?

Why is it bad to go through early menapause? Why is it important to take estrogen after a complete hysterectomy to prevent early menapause?

Early Menopause: When the ovaries stop producing estrogen and progesterone, some degenerative processes start, such as bone loss leading eventually to osteoporosis, and changes in cholesterol that can increase risk of heart disease, and cognitive decline. If menopause is early, these processes start up sooner. Hormone replacement delays the process.

How does estrogen work to prevent fertilization in contraceptive pills?

Prevents Egg Growth: Great question. Estrogen inhibits a hormone called FSH which usually helps grow an egg. But the Progesterone part of birth control prevents ovulation and makes the inside of the uterus thinner to prevent pregnancy.

Will topical estrogen cream help prevent wrinkles?

Will topical estrogen cream help prevent wrinkles?

No: The only proven way to minimize the development of wrinkles is prevention of skin damage, good health, a family history of robust skin and gentle conscientious cleansing with the use of a good moisturizer. So don't smoke, eat healthy carotene rich foods, apply sunscreens and cleanse your skin of make-up residues etc. At least once a day. Retin-a helps; particularly with oily skin.
