Question: Estrace VS Estroven

 baselach - Sun Mar 29, 2009 10:24 pm

Is Estroven as Effective as Estrace (or Estradiol)??
Does Estrace (or Estradiol 2 mg) need prescreption to get it from the pharmacy??
I am planing to use it on day 8 to 11 with the clomid (100mg) treatment (form day 3 to 7) and MedroxyProgesteron 10mg (day 15 to 25).
Please answer back A.S.A.P because I started the clomid pills already.

Thank you.

User avatar Hello,
It is my understanding that all estrogen hormones require prescription and you should only take this under the doctor's orders in connection with your conception attempts. I cannot say the difference between the two. Why are you wondering? I assume your doctor has given you a recommendation for this as clomid should only be used under a doctor's care as well.

Good luck in your efforts.
