Had a hysterectomy. Tried two creams. Trying another transdermal form. Will HRT pill help?

I had a hysterectomy 7years ago and went on bioidentical hormones. My doctor tried two cream formulations but my body would not absorb any of the hormones. I now have a new doctor (moved) and she wants me to try another transdermal form; I realize this is the best way to avoid a pass through the liver, but I don't think I have any choice but to take a pill! Would it help if I took HRT in pill form with food or with teaspoon of coconut oil, to avoid a first pass through the liver?
