I had a total hysterectomy at age 35. I was put on an estrogen patch. Suffered with depression & was on antidepressants. Found a dr that prescribed bio identicals.
I use Biest 1.5 estrogen/3.0 progesterone. Also have estroil vaginally 2 or 3 times a week, & testosterone cream on vulva 2 or 3 times a week. A year ago I got off of the antidepressants, but I have terrible mood swings, depression. I tried Estrablend & for 3 months I was on top of the world. Then back to depression. I talked to the compounding pharmacy & they told me I shouldn't have taken that & once I was off it for 3 weeks they would up the Biest progesterone.
I cry & feel like I am going nuts. Should I have more progesterone & less estrogen? Also, at times my nipples get really sore. Any advice would be helpful as I don't want to go back on antidepressants & I am driving my husband with my up & down moods. Am not interested in anything, irritable, angry, cry, etc. Thanks.
