I'm a teenager and im on Premarin (conjugated estrogens) and provera to bring back my period. I have gained alot of weight (10-15 lbs) but I have not changed my lifestyle?

Hormones = wt. gain. Hi Bobby, I believe that you have not changed anything yet have gained wt. Hormones do cause us to gain wt in the form of water retention, the way we handle sugars in our diet, and the way we deposit fat. This means that we have to overcome all of this with a change in our lifestyle. Consume more water, less simple sugars and fats in your diet and of course increase exercise. Read more...

Took estratest HS for years with good results. Now on Premarin (conjugated estrogens). 625. Don't like it. Which is the closest HRT to estratest HS with no weight gain?

Testosterone. Estratest (esterified estrogens and methylestosterone) had a hefty dose of testosterone for women, which is why you liked it -- but it isn't the healthiest drug for women to take because of the testosterone. It's no longer available on the us market. The estrogen you're taking is one half of the dose that was in estratest, (esterified estrogens and methylestosterone) again probably having something to do with you're not liking it. Talk with your gyn. There is disagrement re estrogen tx. Read more...

I took two Depo-Provera shots and now she just start me on Premarin (conjugated estrogens) pills how long does it take to work?

Hmmm. That's a lot of hormones. I'm guessing you have very heavy vaginal bleeding. Hopefully it will start working in a week or two. If not, i would consider getting a mirena (levonorgestrel). It is an iud with Progesterone that helps make bleeding lighter. If that doesn't work you may need surgery (ablation or hysterectomy). Consider the iud! good luck. Read more...
