surgical menopause - any advise?

Hi ladies

I am almost 3 weeks post laparoscopy to remove Endo and both my ovaries.

I started HRT 4 days ago and I am waiting for it to kick in and help me.

So far I am getting the hot flashes, feeling sensitive, irritable, dry skin, hungry all the time and finding it hard to get to sleep.

I wondered if anyone had any advise, experiences Or going through similar time.can I take evening primrose oil with HRT?

Hi I had my ovaries removed last year and my doctor was very reluctant to put me on HRT because of my family history.I struggled for 4 months and got to the point that I didn't care if I woke up,I never had 1 nights sleep because of the hot sweats and the depression and anxiety was so bad that I hardly worked.

I returned to seee my consultant who put me on HRT and within 3 weeks it felt like a miracle !! The HRT has had to be changed a couple of time and I still have some sweats but I can honestly say it was the best thing I done going on HRT I feel like I've got my life back.

Not everyone's HRT experiences are positive my for me it has been.

so good luck and take care.
