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 for Progesterone (2.5 or 5.0mg). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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. Speak with your dr. About a different hormone combination. A known amount of hormone in a medication is far superior to otc meds...If you really need them.
