estrogen replacement

Hi,

My doctor has prescribed an estrogen replacement called Livifem after my blood tests revealed that whilst definately not menopausal (I''m 39), I have very low estrogen levels.
This Livifem is over R300 for a months supply, and I simply cannot spend that (single mom and all that). Is there a natural alternative available?

many thanks

hi

you can try Remifimen (black cohosh). this is a phytoestrogen. Safe to use if no history of breast cancer. This would help increase the estrogen levels. Make sure you retest your hormones after 6 months to make sure the medication is working for you.

Ek is 44 jaar oud en het ''n volle historektomie gehad ''n aantal jare gelede, so ek gebruik daagliks hormoonvervanging. Aanvanklik het ek Livifem gebruim ,maar dit is verander na Estrofem omrede my dr gesê  het dat die Livifem die opname van my cholosterol medikasie verhoed. So 2 weke terug het ek egter ''n homopaat gaan spreek wat ook toetse op my gedoen het (met rekenaarprogram). My lewer werk glad nie na behore wat natuurlik erge probleme veroorsaak, veral ook omdat my galblaas verwyder is. Daar is oa ook parasite in my ingewande. Die homopaat het vir my kruie medikasie voorgeskryf om die prebleme op te klaar / te verbeter en toe ook sommer gesê  ek moet die Lipitor (vir cholesterol) dadelik staak omrede dit die lewer net nog verder aanval. Graag sal ek dan nou ook eerder ''n natuurlike preperaat wil gebruik vir hormoonvervanging. Wat stel u voor?
