I had a hysterectomy in summer 2008 - everything was removed, even ovaries. I ve been taking 1 mg of Estradiol ever since and I m worried that I may be taking it longer than I should. I ve researched the pros and cons of quitting it but there is equal argument for both. I don t know what to do....I want to stop taking it but not if it will put me as risk. I m fairly healthy, almost 44 yo. No history (or family history) of cancers and I quit smoking more than a year ago. Can you please advise me if you feel - after almost 6 years - I should discontinue HRT?

Hi,I had a complete hysto with both ovaries removed about 7 years ago. I was on HRT for about a year and then got off because of having breast cancer in the family. I m STILL having hot flashes and am just now feeling the effects (bitchy, feeling old and useless, etc) of stress, anxiety to a point where I can t stand myself anymore, lol.... I ve been going through the sleeplessness and other fun things since the surgery, but the emotions are just NUTS now. How can you help?Am I in menopause or what?Lynn I m sorry, I didn t really think about this costing money. I m sssooorryy to waste your time. I m so broke I can t even pay attention right now. But THank you

I am constantly feeling hot, sweaty. Not hot flushes, but warm most of the time.I am on HRT patches. A recent blood test showed my liver function ALT 51 AST 66 LD 421. Are the two ie., high temperature and liver function connected. I am 52 year old female. Hysterectomy 2001. Hormone treatment started late 2001. Overweight - very difficult to lose weight.

I had a complete hysterectomy in spring of 2009 and began HRT right away. I am currently taking .9 mg Premarin per day and have recently been experiencing hot flashes, irritability, fatigue, and weight gain. I am concerned about increasing hormone dosage because I experienced significant weight gain years ago when taking birth control. Since I have no idea of hormone combinations or amounts in the respective therapies I don t have any basis for comparison. I need something to change but additional weight gain would greatly depress me.
