hormones after total hysterectomy
I had a total hysterectomy in Jan. 2011. I had severe endometriosis and couldn't stand the pain. I am 40 yrs. old and have been trying to get my hormones balanced out. I was doing great until Jan. of this year when the endometriosis pain came back. I don't have a uterus, ovaries or anything I thought for it to come back. I guess it was growing on my bladder and such. I had to go way down on my estrogen dosage and go up on my progesterone. My problem is I still don't feel right. I have been on a testosterone injection also because of a none existing sex drive. Now I am always moody, sad, bloated, my feet swell, I just don't feel right. My doc. is wanting me to go off of the testosterone injection but if I do sex will be a chore again. I have an appt. on September 9 I hope he will help me. Is there such a thing as too much progesterone and too little estrogen. I wish I could go on a higher dosage of estrogen but it brings back the endo pain. All my hormones are compounded except the testosterone. I have heard of estrogen dominance is there progesterone dominance also? I tried compounded testosterone but it never helped like the injection. I really don't want to go without having a sex drive. Any suggestions or ideas.
