I had a full hysterectomy 10 years ago, had implants for a few years, stopped but the symptoms were too severe to ignore. I then went onto "Femigel" which is an Oestradiol Gel for a few years now.
It did help with the mood swings and most of the hot flushes. However, I picked up some weight and have been trying to lose some weight for quite some time now and have not been able to do so. I jog/walk 4 times a week for 45min to an hour a day, have tried the gym for a year with no success. Does this have anything to do with my hormones and possible Progesterone levels and how can I have it checked to be certain?
