    Hi, folks. Almost two years now since I have had any rosacea after figuring out that mine was due to not enough estrogen. Just reporting that a female relative, age 45, called me recently, and told...

    Having a mammogram is a big deal because a large percentage of women have microcalcifications with age and will be repeatedly biopsied and finally told that they have "cancer" (DCIS) and must have a...

    Sticky: Still In Remission

    Guest, if you are 19, lack of estrogen is probably not the cause of your rosacea unless you are on a birth control pill which has low estrogen in relationship to progestin. You could have acne due to...

    Huge numbers of people have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. I can't believe they are still blaming everything on yeast. That was the fad 40 years ago and I guess it never ends as long as there are...

    I do think that hormones play a role in rosacea for men, too, as men also get rosacea more commonly in mid-life when testosterone decreases. (I would guess that most of the men on this forum are...

    Unfortunately, the phytoestrogens like soy are about 1000 times weaker than estradiol. However, you wouldn't want to take estradiol while nursing. Nursing for as long as possible is very good to help...

    Yes, I am going to take it the rest of my life because I get so extremely ill that I become bedridden when I have no estrogen. I haven't had any migraines since upping my dose and using the dermal...

    Just an update to say that the increased estrogen dose has continued to keep me free from flushing and rosacea for 6 months now. Also, for those who may be interested, the French Oestrogel from...

    Germany does a lot of useful studies on herbs and vitamins, which they would never do over here in the US. Beth, I am surprised that oral B6 and B12 cause you to get cystic acne. Have you take those...

    I am very sorry that you have gotten breast cancer, Susan. Did your mother also have it? Women who get it before menopause usually have a genetic factor involved. I'm afraid that your idea that the...

    Patrice, your English is quite good. I take 2 mg. of estrone twice a day. That's about equivalent in strength to adding another .2 mg. of estradiol, so that my total daily dose is still under the...
