Estrogen replacement therapy helps maintain gut mucous membranes
Doc won’t return until Nov. 1. But yes, let’s compare notes on this. FYI I briefly Googled this subject and most results indicated that HRT can cause GERD. Will keep looking as I have time.

I will probably get into to see my doc sometime in early October, so we should be able to compare notes some time this fall.
I did not search anything for GERD, since I don't have that issue. I just looked for effects of estrogen on colon mucosal lining, and two studies came up. I was also prescribed a cream, but it wasn't Premarin. Instead she ordered a compounding pharmacy to make up a cream for me. I think initially I will just try going back on the cream, and then possibly very low dose estradiol without progesterone. I'll suggest that and see if she concurs.
