Is HRT effective in treating hairloss in a woman who has experienced a total hysterectomy?
I am totaly confused and do not know what to do. I experienced a complete hysterecomy at age 39 ( ovaries and uterous were removed).
I am now 49 years old and am experiencing alot of hair loss. I have never used HRT due to the risks. I have had my thyroid levels checked and also my iron levels checked along with my Vitamin D levels, they all are normal. I have gone to a compounding pharmacy and they have recommended taking estradiol d-tab 0.45 mg twice daily and progesterone sr 100mg once daily. Another health care professional said that I should not take progesterone because I have had my uterous removed and there is no benefit just risks. I am desperate to stop my overall hair thinning. Any advice I am so confused, I truly need some sound advice. Thanks.
