Hello Dr Bets,
I read Dr Anrich recommended this product, but he said that he dont know the product very well. I was just wondering, do you know the product? I read that they dont recommend taking it when pregnant or lactating, so guess a bad idea to try it if you trying to fall pregnant? Do you think it will be safe for me to take (with having pseudohypoparathyroidism), I am only taking supplements and heyfever stuff. Thanks very much Dr :-)

Hi Ruby
I won't take it - it has an effect similar to female hormones, so will in the first instance only work while you take it, and secondly I don't know what the long term effect on the breast tissue will be - these so called "natural" products are not tested in clinical trials. It may also interfere with your menstrual cycle.
