HRT post hysterectomy

Hi All,

Looking for some advice on HRT. I am now six weeks post op, having had a full hysterectomy and bowel surgery due to endo. My consultant currently has me on patches and a top up of estrogel as I was still getting hot flushes now and again.

I know it's early days and I'm completely new to all this, but I don't feel completely great on it and wondered if anyone has tried something that they get on with.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks, Holly

Hi holly I've not yet had my hysterectomy as I've been put on prostap you have to complete 6 months with hospital policy before you can have it done. Any way I'm on livival hrt... But a friend suggested a lady magnet from boots I brought one £35 I've not took livial for 5 days now and I've not had any symptoms of menopause with it. Just heavy bleeding but that's the prostap. It might be worth a try my friends who have used them no endo but said been a God send through there menopause. Speedy recovery.


I had a hysterectomy and ovaries removed in September. I started straight away on livial (tibolone) and have felt absolutely fine - no menopause symptoms at all. I am 36. If you are young it is really important to take hrt for your health and bone density and not just to rely on alternative remedies for the menopause symptoms. I hope you find something that suits you. x


Hi. I had hysterectomy and ovaries out in Feb2015 at 42. I was on livial but did nothing for me. I've tried a few along the way but now on Kliovance and found that helped in 2-4 weeks so I'd recommend you try another.

Be sure it's a combined hrt as I was only on ostregen and that made endo regrow. Now on Kliovance by endo clinics recommendation. It's v low dose and if it doesn't work there's kliofem which is a bit stronger.

Good luck
