  • Good question for a doctor.

  • Well, that depends on where your E levels are right now. If you were low, then likely it would make you feel better. Your face would get oilier and if you were having symptoms of low estrogen or just hormonal issues in general. If you were high, then you might not like the way you feel. Also if you start taking hormones, try finding a doc that will give you bioidentical hormones. They are compounded at the pharmacy especially for you and what the doc prescribes. I would have bloodwork done before I took anything. I took E, Progesteron, testosterone and dhea for over a year. Better than any antidepressant because my hormones were my problem.
