(Moss Point, MS. USA)
I am 62 years old. Had my uterus removed 30 years ago and my ovaries 7 years ago. I take Estradiol 1 mg. on one night and 1/2 mg. every other night; 15 mgs. of Progesterone cream.
I feel terrible all the time. I have been taking Estrogen in some form or another (shots, Premarin, patch) for 30 years. I began the progesterone about 2 years ago. Everything I read says that I should cut down the Estrogen and increase the Progesterone. I am trying to do that but I am extremely fatigued, depressed, weepy, weak most of the day. I could just sit and cry. I read Suzanne Somers book, "Ageless" and she writes that she needs lots of Estrogen and very little Progesterone which goes against what I read about everywhere else. I am confused. Can anyone help? Thanks
