Hi Misty, I am sure as with everything else if you look for ways to find something, there will be an "illegal" or alternative way to obtain products.

I will strongly advise any person to not follow that route, as there are so many reasons why hormones should be prescribed by a doctor. You need to have it monitored, and it does not mean only the hormone levels in your system, before and after you started using it. It also includes cholesterol, liver function and many more. Hormones are quite "powerful" so to speak, and have influence on many things in your body.
