Hello Dr. Royal:
I have a couple of questions about the hormone shots. This is due to an abnormal pap smear test I had recently and I'm going Friday to see another doctor for a second consultation regarding this issue. The results specifically found ASCUS (Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance)
1. What exactly is the substance injected?
2. Based on your experience. Is it possible this hormone shot can cause an abnormal pap smear result?
Dear Linda:At New Hope Medical, we use Estrone 5 mg/cc (from Compound Pharmacy derived from Wild Yam). We also prescribe the sublingual Progesterone Oil 3 mg/drop (also derived from the Wild Yam) to be taken with the injection. Atypical cells can be caused from an excess of nutrients (e.g., B3) or deficiency (e.g., Folic Acid). Interestingly, one treatment for atypical cells of the cervix is to apply intravaginal Estrogen cream (e.g., Estrone).
