Your doctor can prescribe Natural Bioidentical Estrogen as Estradiol. This is available from any pharmacy as a skin patch or cream. It can also be compounded as a (more concentrated) skin lotion. The more concentrated the cream or lotion the easier and less messy it is to apply.
Bioidentical Progesterone, is available in capsules, known as Prometrium. Oral progesterone should be taken at bedtime because it causes drowsiness. The upside is that it improves sleep and anxiety. Prometrium is made from peanut oil, so don’t use it if you are allergic to peanuts.
Compounding pharmacists can make Bioidentical Progesterone in peanut-free capsules and skin creams. Skin creams will not cause drowsiness and can be used any time of day. Some women need skin creams in the daytime and capsules at bedtime.
Always balance Estradiol with Progesterone, at any age, even if you had a hysterectomy.
