Wikipedia

Conjugated estrogens, or conjugated equine estrogens (CEEs), are blended equine estrogens, which may include estrone sulfate, equilin sulfate, and equilenin sulfate. CEEs are used clinically in hormone replacement therapy, with marketed products including both natural preparations isolated from the urine of pregnant mares (brand names Premarin) as well as fully synthetic replications of the natural preparations (brand names Cenestin, Enjuvia, Congest, and C.E.S.). Prempro and Premphase are combination formulations of natural CEEs with medroxyprogesterone acetate.

As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
