    Hi Dee,

    The best replacement for estratest is the bioidentical estradiol and testosterone.  What's in estratest is unlike your own bodies hormones.  you may find the "real thing" helps even more.  You will have to have the testosterone compounded because there is no other appropriate manufactured product.  What there is available is too high dose for women.  I recommend testosterone cream, though some prefer the capsule.  It is a prescription med, so you will have to find a doc who is knowledgeable about bioidentical hormone therapy.  You can go on www.BHRTdocs.com to find a provider in your area.

    Good luck to you, Dee,

    Sandy
