I normally have ESTRADIAL & TESTOSTERONE IMPLANTS but the last couple of times i had them done the gyne put them in my upper thigh and within a week they had resurfased and never worked. I know i need more implants but am scared they will just keep doing the same thing!!!!! I'm very sad and confused, can anyone give me some advise please?????? rose-buud40. smhair

confused   Hi Rosebud, I don't have any idea about the implants for you. Can they try somewhere other than your thigh? Even though I can't be of any real help, just know that I am concerned and will try to find a way to get your situation sorted. I know a lot of nurses and maybe one of them will have an idea. I'm a nurse, was a nurse, but I never really dealt with your situation. I mostly worked on stroke and head injury units. Good luck to you. I'll let you know if I find any news for you.

Do the implants give you more than oral medications would? Is it that you need more than the oral medications can give you? I was just wondering. I went through a time when I needed hormones when I was in my thirties, but I didn't have the situation that you did. I had my uterus punctured when I got a tubal ligation. I also got pelvic inflamitory desease. Things just didn't go right, but in the end it came out okay. My hormones got back to normal. I am sorry that I am not much help either. Hopefully Learning2fly can get you some information. It sounds like your body is pushing out the implants. Unless it is the muscle.

I hope that this works out for you and that the hormones work for you. We do get emotional when our hormones are out of whack.

Take care my friend.

Hugs, Karen

Hi Beverly,

Just a quick reply to say that I hope that you are feeling better and I am sorry for your circumstances. I hope that your body doesn't reject the hormones this time. Let us know what is going on. Got to run.

Have a wonderful day/night. It is night here. Kind of late. Please keep us posted.

Hugs, Karen

hi beverly. jamie, male, 37. testosterone defeicint from birth. lack of testes. annorchia. was on the impants for over 17 years, always popped them, darn problematic, as a teen the injections, then 17 years of impants and for the last 3 or so years the testogel. fantastic, rub it in, belly or thigh after showering and yes it works well, no waiting in between implant appts whilst the last has gone dry and we get menapausal and real darn cranky. check with a registered endocrinologist-hopefully you can get an infused gel that will work for you. good luck my friend. jamie.

I saw your list of diagnoses and figured oral wouldn't work for you. I have talked to my friends and they say injectable or gel/cream is the only other way to go in your circumstances. There are also estrogen patches available. Good luck!!
