I have the C677T Mutation and have been told its unsafe for me to take estrogen as it increases the risk of blood clots. Are bioidentical hormones safe? How about testosterone? I'm trying to relieve menopause symptoms (hot flashes, low libido, etc).

Hi:


"Are bioidentical hormones safe? How about testosterone?"

Matters of safety can not be properly addressed via the Internet (which has serious limitations/restrictions). Please consult with your doctor(s).

Best of luck down the road of life.

Take care,
