Estrogel and Prometrium

Are estrogel and prometrium considered the same benefits as just taking Renewed Balance?
I am a 63 year old female and I had a lot of mild anxiety, depression, no energy, all things related to menopause I am sure.
I started on Estrogel and Prometrium, low doses, in March of 2009. It has been a year, and I still have side effects that I am not comfortable with, like sore breasts and swelling of the legs.
So, a month ago I drop the so called bio identical hormones for Renewed Balance. I have used Renewed Balance for 3 weeks, and the soreness in my breast has gone away. There's not so much swelling in my legs etc., but I still feel as if I am not yet balanced like I should be.
I still have symptoms of forgetfulness and low blood sugar. I feel like I have to eat more often so that I feel better...
I am a type A behavior - I never stop, always doing things. I am an interior designer married to a business man who is high maintenance. I walk, do yoga, and am trying to slow down.
So, all this to say, should I remain on Renewed Balance?
Hormones can be pretty complex. They are vital to our good health, and that's why we want to keep them in balance.
If you are estrogen dominant, I wonder why you were prescribed the Estrogel and Prometrium combo in
the first place. The symptoms you experienced after taking the Estrogel (sore breasts and swelling of the legs) are common side effects of that product and too much estrogen in the body.
I'm glad to hear you had the good sense to stop taking the Estrogel and start using Renewed Balance instead. :)
The fact that you've had positive results in as little as 3 weeks should be a great encouragement to you. Some people find it takes a couple of months to notice a real difference while others can see the change in a matter of days.
The majority of women do not need more estrogen. In our western societies we tend to have an imbalance because of our modern lifestyle. We have a tendency toward estrogen dominance.
I would encourage you to continue with the Renewed Balance for at least a few months to get a real sense of the full benefits it can bring. You can even increase the amount of the cream you are using as needed.
If after several months you still feel that you aren't quite in balance, you may want to get your hormones tested by a doctor experienced in natural health and hormone testing.
Another option is to consider adding some RevitaFem capsules to your daily routine. Here's a RevitaFem Fact Sheet
you can look at for more information if interested.
