Have you actually compared the product inserts to see which ingredient it is that's different?

I emailed Besins on Friday regarding Oestrogel being out of stock everywhere. They have just replied apologising, and to say that new stocks have been released this weekend so should be readily available again from this week.

That's great news GRL, I hope everyone will soon be able to get hold of proper Oestrogel.

GRL - thatís given me a brilliant idea. Might email Besins to find out who they supply to so we can always get Oestrogel.

Iíll let you know the outcome all.

The strange thing is, if you look the two products up the ingredients in both are identical. It must just be the proportions that differ and that makes the difference I presume.

Stellajane, I think it's the carrier gel used in Oestrodose that is inferior to the one used in Oestrogel. Oestrodose feels thinner and runnier, and smells different to Oestrogel. I think this affects the absorption of the product?

I agree. I'm sure this is what's happening with lots of medications - they're slightly changing the composition and if you're sensitive then you really notice the difference. Since they 'repackaged' my antihists the new type are making me feel as drowsy as hell whereas on the original ones I feel great! Grrrrr ...

Make sure you report these issues to your pharmacist everyone!

I managed to get two of my prescribed 6 pumps today, it seems to be trickling through!
