How Long Does It Take For Hrt To Leave Your Body?

Dear Friends,

I got off HRT two weeks ago due to bad side effects from it, but I still feel the side effects, just not as bad. My body seems to be feeling a little better each day. But I still don't feel like my old self again. How long does it take for the HRT to completely wear out of your system, how many weeks, months or years?

Thank you in advance for your priceless help.

Hi meepie that depends on a lot of things so it's a tough question to answer. What HRT were you on? For example, Premarin can hang around way longer than, say, Estrace. Progesterone, if you were on an oral form, is gone within a day; the creams stay around for quite a while.

You may not feel like your old self. Your old self had functioning ovaries, right? Things are going to feel different without the same hormones you were producing pre-hyst.

I hope this helps. Hang in there!
