Question
Hi again Dr,

Thanks for your replies,

So if I wanted to cover all my bases, could I take my 200 mgs spiro with Avodart?

And how much Avodart is usually sufficient? I wouldn't be on a bcp since I have a copper iud in. I am finished having children.

Would I also have to have an estrogen supplement? Thanks for all your help.

I won't be able to see a specialist for several months so your advice really helps me to be prepared when I eventually do go.

Have a great day.

3.Would I also have to have an estrogen supplement?
Answer:  ---Talk to your endocrinologist or GYN about whether you could or should take some supplemental estrogen to block your ovaries from making hormones.
