Don't know what to use or take
Had a hysterectomy just leaving the left ovary due to fibroids of the uterus cysts on both ovaries and overgrowth of scar tissue from 3 cesarians. Relieved symptoms for a while but developed a cyst on the ovary that was left. And had milk production which I told the doctor before the surgery. Had prolactin level checked and was high and was told all of this was caused by high prolactin levels and a possible prolactinoma.
So therefore causing more fibroids ovarian cysts now vaginal dryness muscle soreness that I didn't have prior to surgery. Also was very active sexually before the surgery and now still am but not as enjoyable. No hotflashes as of yet and thinking of trying progesterone cream.
My thoughts are to examine all aspects before a hysterectomy. When my prolactin levels were found to be high and I went to an endrocrinologist. It was stated that with therapy I could have alleviated the need for the hysterectomy and just had the excessive scar tissue removed. And one ovary and maybe could have saved the rest and maybe my chance for more children. I have since then lost my ability to have health insurance and looking for natural ways to boost my dopamine levels. And now have to find ways of helping other symptoms that I didn't have prior to the surgery. And still have to cope with the cysts that I'm still developing and fibroids and scar tissue growth from hence the hysterectomy itself.
I'm hoping the progesterone cream will help with the sexual libido excessive vaginal dryness and muscle soreness that I'm now having. The depression and emotional outbursts that I have now I don't know if it is the high prolactin or other. My thought is check all of your avenues before you have a hysterectomy because you may end up with the same issues you had befor but also new ones because of the hysterectomy itself. Be very very informed.
