I am not familiar with the specific drug name Estronal, is this from Costa Rica? If so, could you tell us what the active ingredients and amounts of each are on the label?

You are receiving estrogen from the Estronal in some amount (I assume from the name; but wanted to make sure). Birth control pills contain estrogen, as well as progestin, and can help with your symptoms.

Would you like more information on what women have found helpful in controlling their symtpoms after a hysterectomy?
