ET at CD12

Entry sebelum ni I lupa nak letakkan maklumat ketebalan dinding rahim (ET). Dah publish dan baca semula baru perasan maklumat tu tak diletakkan.Alhamdulillah setakat hari ni ET dah mencapai 8.5mm. Harap until Jumaat ni bertambah tebal la. I harap sangat nak bantu ET ni bertambah tebal jadi I buat sedikit pembacaan. Google sana sini dan jumpa apa yang I cari.Memula I google tentang Progynova. Rupanya ubat tu adalah estradiol valerate. Sila baca kenyataan di bawah untuk faham apa fungsi estradial valerate ni. 

Estradiol valerate contains a hormone which is similar to the hormone oestrogen that is produced by the body. When women go through the menopause, levels of oestrogen become low. This leads to symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats and dryness of the vagina. Estradiol valerate helps to replace the low levels of oestrogen which may help to relieve the symptomsof the menopause. This is known as hormone replacement therapy.
Estradiol valerate helps to treat the symptoms of the menopause but it may also increase the chances of getting certain types of cancers and certain heart or circulatory problems.
You and your prescriber will need to weigh up the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy. Your prescriber will review your treatment on a regular basis.
Women who are on hormone replacement therapy will be advised by their prescriber to watch out for any symptoms of breast,endometrial or ovarian cancer. They may be advised to regularly examine their breasts for any changes or lumps or report any unusual vaginal bleeding to their prescriber.
Treatment with hormone replacement therapy needs to be tailored to each individual. Sometimes a medicine containing thehormone progesterone will need to be taken as well as Estradiol valerate. For more information about different types ofhormone replacement therapy, and the risks and benefits of having hormone replacement therapy, you should talk to yourprescriber.
Do not share your medicine with other people. It may not be suitable for them and may harm them.
The pharmacy label on your medicine tells you how much medicine you should take. It also tells you how often you should take your medicine. This is the dose that you and your prescriber have agreed you should take. You should not change thedose of your medicine unless you are told to do so by your prescriber.
If you feel that the medicine is making you unwell or you do not think it is working, then talk to your prescriber.

Ada pro and con amik ubat ni. Yang pasti ubat ni akan diberikan oleh Dr mengikut keadaan patient. Walau pun Dr tak bagi I ubat ni untuk tebalkan dinding rahim I still lega. So from this, I dapat tahu estradiol valerate ni similar to oestrogen. I cari pula apa supplement semula jadi yang boleh bekalkan oestrogen. Ada banyak rupanya dan salah satunya adalah Vitex. Wah, my reading become more interesting. Selain itu, blach cohosh and soy. I tak tahu apa bendealah black cohosh tu. But, soy I dah lama stop. Korang boleh baca dengan lebih lanjut kenyataan di bawah:

Plant-based regulators
As herbal prescriptions to alleviate symptoms associated with hormone imbalances date back 2,000 years, scientists began looking into these traditional remedies in earnest beginning in the 1950s. Vitex is an herb whose virtues were extolled around 450 BC, and the first modern extract was produced in Germany about 50 years ago.
Herbs can have a profound effect on hormonal balance. Phyto-oestrogen-containing plants like red clover, black cohosh, the Chinese herbs kudzu and psoralea, and of course soy and flax extracts, contain compounds that are not actually steroids but work like oestrogen in the body.
Vitex and black cohosh are examples of time-honoured herbs that can change hormone levels in the body by working on the pituitary gland, which controls the ovaries to produce oestrogen and progesterone.11,12 Black cohosh has been found to significantly change levels of luteinizing hormone, which is made in the pituitary gland.
Black cohosh contains phyto-oestrogens reported to have a direct oestrogenic effect, but it also has compounds that act as hormone regulators through the pituitary gland, and other as yet unidentified mechanisms.16
Red clover, soy and flax extracts have been shown to have a significant oestrogenic effect in animals and humans. Whether these effects translate into real clinical benefits for reducing hot flashes and protecting bone density remains to be proven with larger and better-designed clinical trials.17 The safety of regular long-term genistein use also has been questioned, but appears to be safe if the dose is kept under 60mg/day.
Hormone regulators are herbs that contain diverse compounds that affect human hormone production by stimulating the pituitary gland or adrenal glands to produce more or less of hormones like oestrogen or progesterone, or regulate the levels of other hormones like luteinizing hormone, prolactin and follicle-stimulating hormone.
These herbs do not contain compounds that act directly on the body?s cells like oestrogen or testosterone, inducing nuclear expression of DNA to produce proteins; rather, their effect on the body?s cells is indirect. The most credible and successful products — vitex and black cohosh — fall into this category. 

Summary of herbal effectiveness

Strong history of use and published scientific proof
Black cohosh: Warms and stimulates the uterus, relieves pain; relieves hot flashes, regulates oestrogen.
Vitex: Regulates synthesis of sex hormones; helps relieve hormone-related symptoms.
Ginseng: Red Chinese and Korean ginseng are used traditionally to support sex hormone production in men and women over 40; hormone-like effect noted in animal studies, questionable in humans (Murphy, et al, 1998).
Hops strobiles: Beer brewed with hops has a demonstrated but weak oestrogenic effect (Chadwick, et al, 2004). Hops is starting to get some interest for product development, although some wild claims have little science to back it up.
Saw palmetto: Strengthens genito-urinary tract, relieves inflammation; primarily used in products to relieve symptoms like frequent, difficult urination or benign prostatic hyperplasia in men; good scientific support (Boyle, et al, 2004).
Strong history of use, but no published science
Blue cohosh: Nourishing, mildly stimulant uterine tonic; relieves pain; concerns recently about toxicity to the fetus has limited its traditional use for promoting birth.
Dandelion: Promotes milk flow, clears the liver; favourite ingredient in many formulas; little scientific evidence for effectiveness.
Partridge berry: Traditionally used to stimulate uterine contractions and help induce labour; used by traditional herbalists.
False unicorn: Contains phytosterols and is used as a uterine and menstrual regulator; conservation and over-harvesting concerns.
Beth: Contains phytosterols and is used as a uterine-regulating and parturition herb; limited number of products available.
Red raspberry: Taken during pregnancy to gently increase tone of uterus and facilitate birthing; popular as a pregnancy tea.
Fennel: Traditionally used to stimulate mother?s milk (galactagogue); some evidence of oestrogenic effects, but few products.
Poor history of use, and no published science
Wild yam to reduce cramps.
Dong quai to nourish the blood, improving the health of female reproductive organs.
Cramp bark to relieve cramps.
Sarsaparilla to ?purify blood? and increase excretion of nitrogenous waste products from the urine. Contains diosgenin, which has no proven hormonal effect in humans.
I ingat nak beli supplement Vitex. Tapi takut tak de kesan sebab baru nak start consume. Usually herbs ni take long time juga kan baru nampak kesan.
