You are just brilliant and thank you for your dedication to women. I am a Harvard alum and have yet to find very few MDs who make the effort to seek the NEW information. Literally, you are SAVING women's health and lives. We are always the LAST the industry cares for. We must change this. BECAUSE of your advice, I have found an amazing Dr. who is a recent Cornell grad and agrees with all you have said. We have started my HRT this year and I have found major relief and feeling like myself again. I am diligent with healthy practices, taking progesterone + testosterone (and weight lifting) and watching my body morph back into STRENGTH from atrophy and fat growth. My gratitude overflows and I am sharing your profile far and wide. I am working on a women's group and podcast, and will bring your information to light! God bless you, Dr. Mary Claire Haver!

I appreciate you sharing your up to date information with the rest of us! I am a nurse practitioner who works in psychiatry and the lack of treatment to women for multiple issues related to hormonal issues send helpless confused women to seek mental health care when sometimes HRT could make a huge difference… or at least help them understand why they are suffering and that they are not going crazy. More information is needed and more providers need to get training to care for women later in life. The knowledge gap is huge.

Yes thank you! Women's Health in this country is disgraceful and quite frankly my insurance doesn't even cover HRT. So many of the GYN's I've been to do not even believe in prescribing it either. I am chronically ill w several autoimmune diseases, osteoporosis and now b cell lymphonic leukemia. I often wonder if HRT would have helped me and avoided so much illness. Also have had chronic insomnia for years with no help from doctors.

@tinyshepherdess7710 10 ай бұрын
The fact that men suffering from low T or sexual health problems are easily treated and insurance is much friendlier to men's needs in general is maddening beyond belief. The treatment gap goes right along with the research gap. It almost seems like society at large is fine with women suffering. When I started to transition into menopause I left my husband, then a few years later quit my job. I thought my life was over and even wished I'd die of some disease so I could eliminate the suffering. The drugs that were readily offered me were antidepressants of course. They are the answer to everything when it comes to women. Look no further, just give her some Paxil to numb her and shut her up.
@tinyshepherdess7710 10 ай бұрын
Since the WHI study especially, I keep hearing/reading from MDs - including OBGYNs - that there is NO training in med school for treatment of menopause, something that half the population experiences. It is a travesty of health care. Women have to demand a change.

That is horribly inhumane treatment of animal's..I feel for all animal's abuse. was put on Premarin at 55..I'm 68 now. On day 3 of taking it I was bleeding so profusely I went to the ER. The obgyn told me to keep taking it as the bleeding would stop. I never went back to her. I wasn't even aware of what HRT was and didn't ask for it...she never mentioned I could have blood clotting issues..just learned that here. I know I do have blood clotting issues now tho from having a tooth pulled and also having to go to the ER for bleeding profusely. I think now the obgyn and the dentist were both incompetent. I try to educate myself as much as possible now BEFORE I see a physician nowadays.

@@lourdeslayton332 hi! Yes I was 56 when I had it done and was post menopausal. Mine was difficult to insert because I had the uterine ablation about 10 years ago. It stops peri meno bleeding and creates scar tissue. It was difficult for my doctor because there was so much scar tissue. If you don’t have that, it shouldn’t be a problem. Tylenol before the procedure should help but it’s not really too bad. Afterward, I had a tiny amount of spotting and light cramps for a few hours. Not bad at all. Your other option could be a dual patch- containing both estrogen and progesterone. Ask your doctor which would be best for you. I love the fact that my HRT is preventing the scary diseases of menopause. I’m so glad I got Menopause Barbie’s education early!

I'm a little confuse on when I should be changing the second patch so that I'm getting the daily dosage of 0.05. Right now I'm doing Friday and Mondays at 8am on both days. But I was told I should do one 4 days and the other 3 dsys...so it would first patch on Monday and second on Thursdays. What I'm still confused about is if I should be changing the patch at the same time (8am) on both days or should I be a different time for the second patch? I just want to make sure that I'm getting the minimal daily dosage for preventing the 3 big decease from estrogen deficiency. Hope you can help! Thank you!!

I absolutely love the information you’re providing to perimenopausal women like myself and I have decided to make an appointment to discuss HRT with you. That is something I did not think I would ever want to do until listening to some of your videos and learning how you came to this treatment option. All of your education on nutrition is what sold me. I had lost faith in our mainstream medical community because of the misinformation and skewed data and studies around vaccines and autism when my son had his reaction to vaccines as a toddler and how life changing/shattering it was for us. As excited as I was to hear how much I resonated with you and the info you’re sharing around perimenopause, diet and HRT my heart sunk when you likened the vaccine/autism community to the cancer/HRT community. Have you dug into that issue the same way you’ve dug into this issue? Because I believe you’d find some similarities in how you’ve changed your outlook on how you were taught versus what you find doing the research on your own and living through it as you have in this department. All that being said, I am still very grateful for the time and research you have put into this topic. I am very hopeful that it is going to help me and am looking forward to getting started.

I’m 49 and have had night sweats for years and thought it was my mattress. So I slept with the window open and a fan on. They would come and go. My breasts get sore for weeks and goes away for several month. I don’t have a uterus, just ovaries. Then several months ago I started losing whole hairs. A lot of hair but I don’t have periods to gauge where I’m at. All I know is I have hot flashes, night sweats and bloating

I have also made some dietary changes that have helped in so many ways! I had so many digestive issues and joint issues, dryness issues and found that eating a carnivore diet greatly improved these issues and as a side benefit, lost weight! Dr. Ken Berry on YT is extremely helpful with all my questions about this diet change. But it isn't the answer to all the problems, SLEEP being the worst of it. Thanks again. Loved you on Angie Hot and Flashy channel!

I am so thankful that I found your page on TikTok I am currently following you everywhere now a full history back to me completely got it one year ago in October. Currently having joint issues, brainfog/memory,some hot flashes, low libido. Was recently diagnosed with De Quervains Tenosynovitis out of the blue. So many people (family) are telling me it could possibly be hormones. Been to MD, DC, OT, PT, and a surgeon who wants to do surgery. I am so confused and you are making me rethink hormones. The RA tested blood work and through the an obgyn she mentioned testosterone and estradial being a little low. No one ever told me that.

I use the pellets and progesterone tablets. Besides the cocktail of female hormones, we also get a small bit of Testosterone which pre-menopausal women make which helps with energy. I've lost weight just because I had energy to exercise. My skin looks younger too. I hadn't slept an 8 hour stretch of time in more than a decade. But with the hormonal therapy, I sleep the entire night. The cost isn't that bad. Costs me out of pocket $400 every 3-4 months. That's less than the daily price of a Starbucks coffee. The bloodwork is covered by insurance. I'm so glad I did it.

I am 63 and have Sjogren's syndrome, so I use a lot oils and butters. Since coconut oil is also an antifungal/bacteria I often put it on after using Dove sensitive soap and before getting out of the shower. But I have also found that after patting dry if I use CeraVe then apply Aveno baby eczema cream, it helps immensely. It is not as messy as using a mixture of castor, vitamin E and coconut oils whilein the shower.

I have never had a good clear understanding of things and therefore never quite knew what questions I needed to ask my physician. After watching this video I went and grabbed my prescription for my HRT. I am 63 years old and my estrogen levels they have listed are; 80% estriol and 20% estradiol. I also have some progesterone and testosterone added but if I’m understanding you correctly my estrogen levels are backwards, no? Lord knows I will not be getting pregnant anytime soon.😅 I will be seeing my physician in April or May but wondering if I need to address this before then. Do I understand correctly my levels are wrong?
