Pharmacy Expert Q&A's
Name: Tammy

Have been on Bi-Estro 80% 2.5mg Tablet
48 years old. Periods every 3 mths very light. Suddenly had extreme breast tenderness spotting for 2-3 wks and then heavy bleeding with terrible cramping. Hx of fibroids and panic attacks. Panic has been better since starting NHR. Have not been using NHR past week anxiety much worse. Could you give me advice what to do? Would like to continue NHR but afraid making
fibroids Flare. My Dr. Does not have a problem giving Rx for NHR but does not know much about their use. Is it possible to continue NHR at a smaller dose and not cause fibroid growth. Your help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Dear Tammy:

We can help you solve the problem, and it may be related to lack of progesterone, not too much Biest. I don't read anywhere that you are also using progesterone for a good balance. I think the answer would be to use some progesterone monthly, have a period monthly, and to not lower the Biest dose. This would probably correct the problem for you. To do a consultation with us, please follow the following patient empowerment program, so we can help you soon. I am sorry for the delayed answer, but have been ill for the last week. Here is the program to follow, and see the link in line # 2 or # 3.

To learn more about how we can help you get started on bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and feel better through our “Patient Empowerment Program” click here or post this in your web browser. This program was developed to assist you in getting started on the natural bioidentical hormones. It empowers you through knowledge and education to approach your physician and get the natural treatment you are looking for. We provide physician referrals, as part of our program.

The patient empowerment program is a full in-depth consultation with a consultant pharmacist whereby we evaluate your symptoms, lab work of your hormones (if performed), and any other pertinent laboratory results via phone consult. We then make an assessment and write a clinical consult note that includes recommendations for natural bioidentical hormones that you can provide to your doctor. If you have already discussed bioidentical hormones with your doctor or if your doctor refuses to prescribe them after reviewing our recommendations, we will provide you with a referral to a physician in your area that will prescribe bioidentical hormones.

We would like to help you feel better, and be your compounding pharmacy in the future. We ship all across the country, and accept hundreds of insurance plans for reimbursement.

After you fill out the consultation form, you will be contacted by one of our consultant pharmacists within 2 business days to set up a consultation. Alternatively, to get started you may call 1-800-728-0288 and request to schedule a consultation with one of our pharmacists or forward an email requests for a consult to We look forward to speaking with you.
