Do natural estrogen creams work? What symptoms are they used for?

By natural estrogen creams, I assume you are referring to Bioidentical compounded estrogen creams. These creams require a prescription from a licensed practitioner and are made up in a compounded pharmacy. They are used to ease symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats and vaginal dryness. Some women have reported they have helped with these symptoms. However, they are no more effective than pharmaceutical prescribed estrogen and generally are not covered by insurance so the cost to refill them each month can be very expensive. They also carry the same risks as pharmaceutical grade hormones of increased breast and uterine cancer.
