I was diagnosed with breast cancer, estrogen and progesterone positive in October last year. I completed chemo in April and continue Herceptin infusions for the Her2+ status of my cancer. I am only 45 so being thrown into menopause following chemo therapy was quite a shocker and now I am on Tamoxifen which blocks the effects of estrogen in the body. I am very interested in bio identical hormones as a way of balancing my body and not starving it of estrogen, which is needed to support more than 300 bodily functions. Where do you find a doctor who is familiar with these and where are the compounding pharmacies who use these hormones? Do insurance companies typically support this type of treatment?
