Had a total hysterectomy at 45 then downhill from there
After my hysterectomy, I went on Premarin... then the "big news scare" and was told to stop taking it... then a bitch was born... so I tried bio identical progesterone... which seemed to work at first, then the witch came back and the night sweats heart palpitations etc etc.
Went back on premarin and after consulting with a bio pharmacist... suggested I try the patch... fell off... now I am on estradiol gel... one pump... helps but still a tad devilish. It was suggested by same pharmacist that I try progesterone for balance... then try to wean off the estradiol. This is where i am now. I started Natpro a couple of days ago. I don't know if it is in my head but I feel great already. I am using 1/2 tsp... I did not want to measure every time so I bought a pump bottle at the dollar store and low and behold one pump is app 1/4 tsp so I use that morning and night. I feel things are looking up...:)
