Customer: Can u tell what is the safest estrogen i can take as i heard some have bad side affects
Dr Uzair :

I can not name any brands, but estradiol will be the mainstay of therapy initiation. The protocol is decided by an Endocrinologist.

Dr Uzair :

MtF-HRT encompasses not only Estrogen therapy but also combination therapies with progesterone, anti androgens and GnRH analogues.

Dr Uzair :

Do you need any further information or have any more queries?
