TAH BSO hormone replacement

I had a total hysterectomy including ovaries. I'm now trying to balance my hormones. I don't know if I need estrogen, progesterone, testosterone or all? Any experience or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: TAH BSO hormone replacement

Where your hysterectomy was for endometrial cancer, estrogen is contraindicated because it's believed to increase your chances of recurrence. That's why your ovaries were removed - even after menopause they still produce some estrogen, and even that "some" was more than was wanted.

You wrote in another post that although you'd already finished menopause before surgery, you were experiencing a resurgence of menopausal symptoms. I'd suggest working with your doctor to try to find non-hormonal solutions, such as using an SSRI for hot flashes and night sweats.
