Is taking an o-t-c estrogen pill better than prempro (conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone)? I worry about getting cancer with prempro (conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone).

Estrog amt not known: The 2002 study showed and increased risk, not an occurance of breast cancer, presumably due to the pro part of prempro (conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone).

Prempro (conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone) works well but expensive. What is exact alternative?

Prempro (conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone) works well but expensive. What is exact alternative?

Options: There are options. Prempro has different dosages of estrogen and Progesterone component. Estrogen (estradiol) comes in 0.3mg, 0.45mg, and 0.625mg. The Medroxyprogesterone acetate comes as 1.5mg 2.5mg and 5mg. As your dosage of estrogen goes up, so does progesterone. You can take estrogen as pill or patch. I like the patch. And then take Provera (medroxyprogesterone) for Progesterone (2.5 or 5.0mg). ...Read more
