Hi @airey2 – I don't know if my Estrogen level was low or not. I do have a family history of breast cancer so am just as happy to be off it anyway. My specialist m.d. will not be pleased but my family dr. was not keen on it at all.My body-my choice!
Your info on plant-based Estrogen is interesting – I was recently looking up data on that subject for my daughter who has been having a miserable time with hot flashes.
Thanks so much for your post.
I have been on it for several months. Side effects include hearing congestion (and first ear infection in my life),
rash ( first patch of eczema ever), hair falling out and breaking (fortunately I have lots of hair!) very dry itchy scalp and skin in general. No more Estrogen for me! Thanks for tagging others with experience-I hope to hear from them.
I have been taking Vagifem 10 and seem to be having a number of side effects which has caused me to decide to discontinue it. Has anyone had this experience and could we share what our side effects have been?
Hi Lisa- The Columbia Protocol was new to me . While I did not necessarily find new info for me per se I thought their screening tools regarding suicide risks and assessment questions for helping people to recognize the former along with various forms of mental illness could help people seeking information for themselves or others. I thought this could be a valuable addition to our mental health toolkits. What did you think of it?
Last night I caught part of a mental health show on CNN with Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Chris Cuomo. There was a phone number for a Suicide Hotline-1-800-273-TALK. Also info' about "Columbia Protocol Mental Health" online. Lots of good stuff about depression, anxiety etc. etc. and how to assess for these. Wanted to share in case you are interested and missed the show.
Best wishes to all,
