Hello and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

This is happens for some female after hysterectomy, due to hormonal imbalence. Hormonal replacement therapy ( HRT) may help you. Meet your gynecologist she will help you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am 66 years of age. I had a hysterectomy at the age of 37 due excessive bleeding as a result of fibroid tumurs. I presently take the medication Enjuvia .90 mg for hormone replacement therapy. For the last three weeks, I have been having excessive sweating often during the day and I wake up around 2:25 -3:00 am every morning since I began the sweating. The sweating is like when I do an extreme workout. My gynecologist told me that my hormone levels should be balanced, but if they are why am I sweating (perspiration is not an adequate description of what I am doing). My main concern is can you break through your HRT medication or are these symptoms indicative of something else. I noticed that I crave salt (pickles). I noticed today after running a few routine errands and returning home, I was quite tired, which is something I never did until the last 3-4 weeks.
