Hi, I am an american who works on the high seas. For this reason it can be up to a year before I return home to america. I was diagnosed with Premature Ovarian Failure in my early 30's and have been on hormone replacement therapy ever since (I am now in my late 40's). I am in Cambridge for 2 weeks and am almost out of my estradiol (2mg) and am not scheduled to return to the US for another 4 to 6 months. Is there any way I could see a UK doctor to get a refill here? I am willing to pay I just do not know how to go about this. I do not have any other health problems and have never been diagnosed with any other "female" problems. I am only comfortable with female doctors. Any advise would be welcome.
Thank you.
