Can my hormones be off after a hysterectomy when I still have one ovary?

I am 35yrs old and recently had a hysterectomy and cysts drained off my left ovary. Last year I had to have my right ovary and Fallopian tube removed due to a big cyst that had pulled my ovary down and twisted my Fallopian tube. Bout 5yrs ago I had a tubal ligation. I have just recently started having mood swings an my face has broke with acne something awful, plus I'm tired a lot and a little depressed. Could this be a hormonal imbalance?

Hi Cristy

Gosh what a time you have had. I also suffered cysts on my one ovary many years ago, it was only until I discovered the benefits of progesterone did they disappear and never to return. Excess estrogen causes it. You might find the page on Cysts helpful. Your hormones are all over the place and the Tubal Ligation would have made matters worse, please read up on that. Please have your hormones tested, you need estrogen and progesterone tested so that a ratio can be worked out. Also test for Vitamin D as a deficiency reduces the benefits of progesterone, it is connected to every single cell and it’s formation in our bodies including depression, this makes it vital.

Your symptoms clearly indicate that you are suffering from Estrogen Dominance, progesterone is needed to help balance things out. Please also read How to use Progesterone Cream.

Hope this helps you.
