Side effects of Estradiol



I`ve been taking estrodial for awhile and I have also taken estratest and others and it seems that they cause me to have really bad smelly gas. It is a very bad problem and I wonder if anybody else has had their estrogen do this? Is there an alternative? Could estrogen cause colon probelms?


Some women feel they have more bloating (due to gas) when they use hormone therapy.  Gas tends to be a problem the older people become.  The odor of gas relates more to the food people have eaten.
