You are playing with fire and need to understand menopause. Women in agrigarian cultures and only women in industrialized countries have symptoms of menopause. It is NOT a disease and is NOT due to estrogen deficiency as many doctors promoted years ago. Taking any estrogen for menopause is to go back several years where they found out it was causing cancer to do so.
Trials using Premarin in men reported an increased incidence of heart attacks and blood clots was reported in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association). A 1975 documentation in the New England Journal of Medicine showed estrogen use increased the incidence of endometrial cancer in women. A 1976 study linking breast cancer to estrogen use was reported in the New England Journal of Medicine. In 1982 experts reported in Cancer Research that HRT was the leading factor in reproductive cancers. In 1985, the Framinghnam Study showed that cardiovascular events rose in women taking estrogen. In 1989, a Swedish study reported that when women switched to a combination HRT, their breast cancer risk more than doubled (combination “HRT” included the addition of synthetic progesterone or “progestin.” Progestin has since been shown to be completely replete of the positive effects of progesterone once it is metabolized by the liver, but still retains side effects). And so on continued the studies throughout the 1990’s, showing again and again the association of both unopposed estrogen replacement and combination hormone replacement therapies with increased incidences of breast, ovarian, endometrial and other forms of cancer.
Generally speaking, most doctors and practitioners are giving hormones based on symptom presentations and are not performing any baseline testing, or monitoring progress. There is much to consider and much more that we don’t know.
All the steroid hormones are made from cholesterol. They are primarily made in the testes of men, the ovaries of women, and the adrenal glands of both sexes.
There are far better ways of dealing with menopause that taking some pill, especially that dangerous estrogen solution. You need to see a practitioner like a nutritional therapist that can help you with this, not look for a drug solution.

Dear Sir. Certified Therapist, you did not read her question. Don't lecture women unless they ask you the question you are talking about. She said she's taking all natural and wants to know if taking the national supplements twice a day is safe.

The EstroVen tablets she is referring to are considered nutritional supplements and contain no hormones at all
