Hi, I'm 46 and had a hysterectomy 2 years ago. As endo was left on my bowel and urether I was given combined HRT. If ovaries have been removed how is oestrogen still produced to feed endo? I want to come off HRT due to severe anxiety and family history of breast cancer but my doctor said I must stay on it and take anti depressants for the anxiety. I took ADs for a year until six months ago. They worked but I felt odd whilst on them. I don't understand why I can't stop HRT.
