    Hi girls,

    Recently I have been having my hormones compounded because every
    traditional HRT sent me into flares. Right now, I'm on TRI-EST at .125 estriol,
    .125 estrone, and 1 mg of estrodiol. It is definately helping my bladder and no
    flares. However, it has not had the same effect that Premarin did on my sex
    drive. I'm thinking the dosage is still to low. Is anyone else on a Tri-Est natural
    hormone combination and if so, please share your experience with getting the
    levels right. If I could just get the libido back, I would be thrilled! When I took
    Premarin, I did not seem to need the testosterone. To bad that I was unable to
    tolerate equine estrogens. I'm just wondering if this "natural" hormone
    combination is going to be strong enough? If anyone else is using natural
    hormones being compounded, please post your dosage and experiences.

    Sherry, thanks for talking with me lastnight
    about the hormones. My GYN Practitioner
    called me back and is going to order the
    natural estrogen and she said that since
    my mom died of breast cancer at an early
    age that I also need to take the natural
    progesterone with it. That is not the
    same as the Progesterone (progestin) that
    Dr.'s order that is harmful to the bladder.
    She said she went to a lecture about
    the compounding hormones this summer and
    she sounded very knoweledgeable.

    I also read today that for some people who
    have decreased libido that compounded natural progesterone does help along
    with the compounded estrogen. Just a
    thought. My e-mail is [email protected] BEv

    Hello,

    I live in the UK and recently got on to one of the chat sessions rather late in the am.

    I read that Progesterone was bad for the bladder if you have IC, which I have.

    I have gone back to the chat session, but because of the time difference, I have to be on 1am or 2am in the morning UK time.

    Please can someone help and tell me what the problem is with Progesterone? as I have been on HRT for 3 months, and I am now having some problems. I was 51 a few days ago.

    Thank you in advance and warm wishes to you all.

      Ukicer, the Progesterone I was referring to
      is natural progesteron either the cream
      or the speical compounded natural progesteron
      cream. It works much differently from
      the Progesterone (Progestin) that the
      M.D's usually order. WOnder if you have
      that in U.K. You might want to read
      through the messages about what hormones
      people are using on this message board.
      I read about someone else who is using
      the Bi-est (compounded estrogen) and the
      natural progesterone cream and she stated
      she thinks it has helped her I.C. Bev
