    Local vaginal estrogen transmission

    If a local vaginal estrogen cream is used, are there any studies that indicate how much of that hormone is absorbed by sexual partners? If so, what is the effect of estrogen in men? This looks pretty horrific:

    This I would thhink is not for this site and would recommend that you post this question on following site.

    I also believe that there is a menopause community as well if you look at the alphebetical listings page.

    I presume that you are concerned about a male partner affecting him or getting something like this on his penis. If you are concerned about transmitting it to a male then if it is regular hormon creame it is not being used in th vagina which I believe it is not to treat menopause then I would not worry about it. My wife used hormon creme for menopause and it had no effect on me.I think from your limk this is more of an issue for the animals.

    Also if you want to use a more matural treatment for hormon replacemtnt then talk to a wholistic doctor as I know of someone who uses clover tablets to control hot "flashes" amd there may be other treattments. .

    If you still have concerns then ask your question at this site and perhaps they can help you.
