Can you take testosterone but no estrogen? (Breast Cancer)

Hi all, I am going to have my ovaries removed and the side effect stories are terrifying.is it possible to take testosterone without taking oestrogen. I've heard you can take testosterone cream and this helps the Libido. I had oestrogen positive breast cancer so I cannot take oestrogen. If anybody else has had breast cancer and their ovaries removed it would be great to hear your experiences. Thank you! X

Re: Can you take testosterone but no estrogen? (Breast Cancer)

Hello!

I have ER Positive breast cancer...and contemplating having my ovaries removed or shut down with a shot of zoladex. Both options scare me. Strong Family history of breast cancer...and the doc said there is a link between breast and ovarian cancer... I've read a little bit about taking testosterone...but haven't. Are you on an estrogen inhibitor at all? I'd be very interested if you have decided to take the testosterone - and how that is working or not working out for you? Best of wishes with battling the cancer.
