Large cystadenoma

by Jan
(Alberta Canada)

Just had my last ovary removed due to large cystadenoma. I had my uterus and left ovary removed in 2002. I am now in "full" menopause again and really want to sleep and have no night sweats.

What I would like to know is do I take progesterone cream and a natural estrogen or just the progesterone cream? I am 40 lbs overweight, so I am thinking I have a bit of estrogen stored in the fat calls.

Hi Jan I would agree you have excess oestrogen, the cyst and weight gain indicates you do. I don't recommend extra oestrogen, as most of us have far too much as it is. There are now over 100 oestrogen mimics on the planet, see the website Our Stolen Future for more info on this. And to convince you about supplementing with oestrogen, please see our page on HRT. Even natural oestrogen still stimulates cells to divide and multiply. Including fat cells, and as these are a non-ovarian source of oestrogen, a vicious cycle starts. Oestrogen also causes Insulin Resistance. A lack of vitamin D also causes weight gain and IR, please have a test done. Most of us have too low a level, for more info please see the Vitamin D council and GrassrootsHealth websites. We do have a page on Nutrition too. On it are links to 3 websites giving options on getting the metabolism balanced again. You might like to read our page on Menopause too. I recommend 100-200mg/day progesterone, dependant on symptoms. If you should consider using it, please read our page on Oestrogen Dominance first. Take care Wray
