I have had a hysterectomy but kept my ovaries will progesterone help me?
by Alison jones
I am desperately trying to understand how I am feeling I had a hysterectomy 6 years ago and put on nearly 3 stone on in that time the last stone in a much quicker time. I constantly have cravings for all the wrong foods bread, sweets etc. I have many of the symptoms attached to menopause, flushes, bloated ness ,fatigue, brain fog,etc. I have been back and forth to the doctors been on anti depressants (sertraline) for a year and although calmer feel tearful, and generally not good. Recently I have had blood test which did not show up any thing other than I maybe slightly perimenapausal. I recently went to see a kinesiologist who told me I have an imbalance in my kidneys due to lack of progesterone in which she has prescribed me cream. Whilst I found my consultation interesting I am not quite sure this is right as I have read conflicting information to say if you have had a hysterectomy progesterone is not necessary as it is to protect the uterus. Can progesterone be needed for the reason I have described? I would so appreciate your help. Kind regards
