Q. What can I take for estrogen deficiency?
For estrogen deficiency, treatment is based on the underlying cause. Your doctor may choose from a variety of medications depending upon your age and clinical conditions. The medications will also depend upon whether you are estrogen deficient or have high progesterone levels.
