(Perth, Western Australia)
Dear Wray, I am 39 years old and had a hysterectomy about 4 months ago due to medical reasons.
For about the last 8 weeks I have been on estrogen patches which at first worked wonders but for the last 3 weeks it doesn't seem to be working I have returned to the way I was eg: hot flushes any time of the day or night, unable to sleep properly, crying for no reason, fluid retention, anxiety and just constantly moody and arguing over silly things and the smallest things just irritate me.
I don't know whether I need a higher dose of estrogen as I am on 50mg or should I try some progesterone cream can you please give me your advice. THANKYOU!
