My wife is 53 and uses estrogen cream to combat menopausal hot flashes. How long after application should I stop being concerned about the transfer of said estrogen from her skin to mine?
She seems to believe #1 is the right answer, claiming that it is rapidly absorbed and not a threat after that. However my paranoia prevails.
My question has largely to do with morning sex. She puts the stuff alternately on the back of her knees and on her forearms, either of which I will definitely come in contact with during a normal roll in the hay.
I've been experimenting with Coconut oil during the last two weeks to see its effects on my hot flashes. I must say, the effects have been drastic! After first taking a tablsp., I went to bed....and slept thru the whole night. I did not have 1 flash that night. During the day, I noticed that I hadn't felt a flash. My body felt so comfortable and even. Then, a hot flash hit about 5:30p. A few more followed, but they weren't intense. I didn't become completely soaked. Instead, I had a mild sweat on my forehead and just felt warm (instead of feeling like I'm on fire).
If you decide to take Coconut oil for your hot flashes, take a high, pure grade of the oil. Also, start taking it in small doses so that your body can adjust to it. I have read that Coconut oil can help to bring hormonal balance. It's definitely getting me into 'balance', and I feel more energy and mental clarity. I highly recommend taking Coconut oil to alleviate hot flashes.
P S In the past, Vitamin D3 has helped to alleviate my hot flashes (when I began taking it), as well as Iodine. With both, the hot flashes subsided, then disappeared for months at a time. This is the third time they have revisited my body, and Coconut oil has been my line of defense.
