After a nice long run of Primo and then Var this summer, BlueDress came off everything in late September. Prior to the cycle, she had been on estradiol patches to control post-menopause symptoms - really just brutal hot flashes. While on cycle, she had no symptoms and was loving life along with all the other benefits of the cycle. Now that she's been off for almost 8 weeks, she had not returned to using the estradiol, and she is suffering with hellacious hot flashes. She said, ideally she'd love to be on Var forever, but knowing that is impossible, would perhaps female TRT help alleviate some of the symptoms as well? I had read about it and from what we learned, some females take between 15-20mg a week of T -cyp/enthanate a week as female TRT successfully. I was a little leery of it. I know there is more to manage for women including progesterone which testosterone doesn't completely address - DrJim wrote about this. Plus BlueDress's voice was starting to get affected right at the end of last cycle and we cut it short. There's some apprehension to taking something so much more androgenic long term. Three days ago , I relented for her to try a little. She took only 10mg of T-Cyp... Libido when up right away (more than anything she's had in the past!), however it didn't seem to do anything for her hot flashes. This morning she finally slapped on an estradiol patch - which she hated to do, but my poor girl was just miserable burning up. I appreciate any thoughts or advice from anyone who knows more or has experience.
