HRT replacement for premarin and provera

04/26/2007

Question:

I a a 58 year old andI live in the UAE where drugs regularly vanish from the market. I was taking premarin and provera, the premarin vanished. I am on femoston 1/10 but get a period when I take the gray tablets so I presume femoston is cyclical. Is athere another HRT drug I can take to replace premarin and provera that doesn`t give me bleeding every month?.

Answer:

You could use any low dose estrogen pill or patch along with a progestin daily and the combination of using both estrogen and progestin daily at your age should result in no bleeding.
