In brief: Stop taking it.

Natural hormone replacement is fraught with danger. There are very safe and proven estrogen replacement medications that are well-studied and whose proper dosing and side effects are well understood.
That is not the case with herbal forms, which are not even guaranteed to do what they say. See your doc and consider plant based estrogen replacement first, not horse-derived.
