Total Hysterectomy and on HRT
I am 36 years of age. I had a total abdominal hysterectomy in 2006, and since then have been taking Premarin 1.25 mg/day.
I have noticed weight gain, cravings of more foods, and binge eating. Even though I was told that I wouldnt gain weight, I have >10lbs. I was told that it was not necessary to take progesterone because my uterus is gone.
I take my Premarin faithfully without question but still need a better explaination why progesterone is not needed. How could I benefit from progesterone supplement? What are the side effects/ what harm could it do if taken with my Premarin? Do I still need progesterone? I am well aware of the dangers of taking Premarin, but would progesteron increase these risk?
Is the progesterone necessary?
