surgical menopause

Hyster-icalwitch profile image

Hello all. I had a partial hysterectomy 19 years ago and a BSO almost 4 years ago. I have been on 1 mg estradiol per day since. I have found that my hot flashes, mood swings and fatigue/joint pain have indeed been (somewhat) helped by the HRT. Lately though, I have found that I occasionally miss a dose and that the next day I have fewer symptoms. Is this all in my head? Could the HRT actually be keeping me in a state of perpetual symptoms instead of just letting my body adjust? Also, I have heard that HRT helps boost a lacking libido, but I still have literally NO sex drive. Any suggestions would be helpful as my hubby is starting to feel severely unattractive and unwanted.

Hi. I think you may need a ‘menopause’ site? This is a site for ladies with Ovarian Cancer (is this what you’ve had?). If so, post again.

Best wishes.
