Have a look-see in the 'search' box - put the product name in and see what pops up?

Hi jillydoll, nice to see you posting again. How are you?
I started using Sandrena a few days ago, having switched from Oestrogel because I wasn't absorbing it very well. I feel fine so far, even a bit more energetic. I apply to upper outer thighs. It is a bit sticky compared to Oestrogel, but I give it 20 mins before dressing. I am on 2 x 1 mg sachets a day, so a high dose. I used to be on 3 pumps of Oestrogel. It's early days for me. Let us know how you get on if you decide to use it.

Hi Joaniepat
Thanks for asking.

Havenít been too good lately, plus Iíve been waiting for my GP to issue a prescription
which I thought was going to be eostragel, you know the pump action one, but no, sheís
given me Sandrena instead....Iíve started on only 1/2 sachet at the moment, because Iím still
on femoston conti too, which I think Iím going to stay on, (better the devil you know, I think,)
itís just that I thought I needed more oestrogen , instead of upping the femoston all the time,
which was giving me side effects for taking too much progesterone.. (thatís what Iím thinking anyway)
So, Iíll have to wait and see how things pan out. Fingers crossed. Itís always a worry ent it when we have to throw something else into the mix......

Hope your well, and ok....

Hello

I use Sandrena and I think it's great stuff. Yes it does take a while to dry and remains a bit sticky but I tend to shower, apply the Sandrena, do body creams, hair,  make up etc and then dress.

I'm also on 2 x1mg which my lovely gynae has said isn't a high dose. Most people use between one and two mg.

Before that I tried various tablets (upset tummy and probably not absorbing) and patches (irritated my skin). So I'm very happy with Sandrena.

Hi Roadrunner,
Thanx for that.
Like I said, Iíve only used 1/2 sachet this morning, Iím scared to increase too much,
and to be honest, Iíve had a really rubbish day today, even though Iím still on femoston conti.! I didnít sleep well at all last night, and this morning felt rubbish, so didnít eat much today, couldnít be bothered, too tired to do anything really, and now that I have eat something , I feel even more tired and sick....my own fault I know, but sometimes you just kinda give up donít you? Itís this rollercoaster that gets me all the time. Sometimes Iím good, other days rubbish, which is why I think I need more oestrogen.
Iím sure tomorrow will be a better day, I just need to get through today...lol

JD, sorry to hear you're feeling rubbish, but I hope the extra oestrogen will sort things out for you eventually. I daresay you're right that it was the extra progesterone making you feel bad. I think increasing the oestrogen gradually will be your best plan, to give your system time to adjust.
Hope you feel better soon, take care.

Thank you Joaniepat.
Iím hoping itíll work, like many of us on here, Iím so fed up with the
rollercoaster effect, and if I donít get any joy, then Iíll have to put up and shut up
with it Iím afraid....and just accept that this is probably the best Iím going to get.
But, Iím optimistic and hopefully itíll be ok....
I hope youíll be ok on it too, joanie, keep us informed wonít you.?
Nice to hear from you, take care.

I increased my Sandrena dose very very slowly. I had been on Femoston 2/10 then Femoston sequi. I started on 1mg for 2 months, which was too low,  then 1.5mg for another month, up to 1.75 for 3 months and then settled on 2mg. You definitely need to give your body time to adjust.
Patience is a virtue and all that jazz!
Hope it works for you.

Thank you Roadrunner.
Iíve been on femoston conti now since February.
Iíve had to increase over the months too, but find the side effects to much when I take 2/10mg. So, Iíve dropped back down to 1.1/2mg. And now introduced the sandrena as an oestrogen boost. But only 1/2 a sachet at the mo. Iím praying it works, but maybe Iím focusing far too much on everything at the mo because of feeling crap. I think sometimes,
I expect too much too soon, when I know in reality you have to be patient, but all thatís due to feeling so rubbish everyday I suppose. As you say, patience is key...

Take care.
