23 years ago I had a partial hyst, 8 years ago my ovaries were removed. I regret it but non the less here I am with trouble, I have never used HRT except Black Cohosh pills right after the ovaries were removed as I had terrible hot flashes and night sweats. I started having sore swollen breasts and thought I was not supposed to use it so I stopped, I had no idea about dominance until I came here today. I have been suffering for years and afraid to take anything. I know know I have needed help for years and I need it now. I saw a doc who told me women didn't need hormones and it had been too many years so I was fine with out it but I am not and really need help. I bought progesterone cream and 40mg black cohosh pills I thought I would try the cream and half a pill. I just want to know if that is safe and will it help or what alternative should I use. My symptoms in the last five years have become worse, with terrible hot flashes, terrible reactive hypoglycemia that i never had before, terrible anxiety, headaches, weight gain, food allergies these are just the worst things and they all hit me at once about five years ago. Will the cream help? Will the "estrogen" help. Or is there another way?
