Progesterone & Hysterectomy
I am a 58 year old woman who has had a hysterectomy 10 years ago, and who has one ovary left.
At the time the gynecologist told me I do not have to use any HRT, until I started getting hot flushes (randomly) about 2 years ago. Last year in July I started using the cream which helped for a while & then in December the hot flushes were at its highest, I then stopped using the cream and it was manageable.
According to my GP it is not Progesterone but Estrogen that needs to be replaced and she put me on the Estrogen sticker which seems to help a lot.
I am taking Vitamin & Mineral energy capsules, eat Flaxseeds an nuts with my meusli, fruit & nuts with yoghurt on a daily basis. I am a novice when it comes to all this, and when to use what, and would appreciate if you could give me some answers and are looking forward to your reply.
