    Took it for 10 years after a complete hysterectomy at 50. No problems other than no recovery of my ability to focus and calculate mathematically, ( I lost that in the operation). Estradiol helped me feel better than I had ever felt in my whole life! Doctor took me off of it 7 years ago I'm now crying and having hot flashes as well as fuzzy thinking.

    I did very well on estradiol oral, in fact it was great. Then I had a stroke. Doctors took me off estradiol and indicated it was the cause of the stroke. I lost all of my right side. I was very luck to get 99% back within a few hours. I life a healthy life style and always have. I have never smoked, no extra weight and a full time competitive athlete. Now I am on a estradiol cream. It is ok.
