I prefer the most natural of hrt. I read estrasorb is a good cream. Would that be suitable to take with prometrium (micronized progesterone) for perimenopause symptoms?

Estrogen. Biest a combination of Estradiol and estriol is the best combination. Vivelle (estradiol) patches are Estradiol or Estrasorb would be alright. I do prefer combinations instead of just one estrogen.
Yes definitely. This is a great cream when combined with prometrium (micronized progesterone). Be sure you've had that conversation with your doctor about risks of hrt. Keep blood pressure low, exercise every day if you can, keep cholesterol low, don't smoke. All the basics you probably already know!

Specialist. That really requires a specialist and individual care.

HRT. Hrt works pretty fast. I doubt you'd feel worse on it. You may not feel better and dose adjustment may need to be done. However, with all the risks of hrt known now, i wonder why you'd even want to entertain it as your first choice of treatment of menopausal symptoms.
