after hysterectomy low progesterone levels
by: Wray

Hi Esther Yes it could help, having no ovaries means your main source of supply has been removed. The adrenals do make a little, so does the bran, but not enough to oppose the oestrogen effect. Oestrogen is made by all fat cells, but progesterone is not. If you do decide to try it, please read our pages on How to use Progesterone Cream, Peri-menopause and Oestrogen Dominance. We do have a page on Anxiety you could look through, progesterone certainly helps this, it's a potent anxiolytic. As you live in the UK then in all probability your Vitamin D levels are too low. The NHS sets the level at 50nmol/L, even the FDA has set their level at 75nmol/L. Specialists are now saying levels should be 125nmol/L to 250nmol/L. Take care Wray

Have been told I have low progesterone levels could this effect my libido and also leave me stressed. I am supplemented my diet with additional VITAMINS AND MINERALS INCLUDING VITAMIN D. These definately make me feel better.

No libido after hysterectomy
by: Joy

Hi Ester

Your hormones are not balanced especially after a hysterectomy, this will affect libido especially if your progesterone level is low.

Read the page on libido it may help you - see here.
