This is not an easy post to write.
I feel I must.
I took Estroven PM for four plus years straight. It helped me sleep at night during the dreaded perimenopause insomnia. It worked like a charm. Or so I thought.
Then I got diagnosed with DCIS. Breast cancer. An estrogen-dependent breast cancer.
Caught early. Removed. No chemo.
But, since I took this OTC supplement and it most certainly (in my opinion only) made matters worse for me, I needed to speak out.
Not to not take it. Not to bash the product. But to make sure all women who are taking it or consider taking it know the risks.
Talk to your doc. Probably not an issue, but just in case, you need to know.
As a note, I also took progesterone (bio identical) for a few years. Not sure if this had a detrimental effect, but I stopped a couple years before my diagnosis.
Do your homework! This product and others that mess with hormones can lead to trouble. Just be aware.
