Ladies Please Help! - Changed HRT now high blood pressure and emotions all over the board

I really need help. I had a partial hysterectomy Sept 2020. Kept my ovaries but have been on estrogen patches since. I still was experiencing being overheated about 90% of the time. Forward to 2 weeks ago....bloodwork revealed low estrogen and testosterone. Doc changed meds from estrogen patches to estrogen/testosterone combo pill. NOW....for several days I have had VERY high blood pressure. My emotions have been all over the board.

Even though I wasn't 100% great on the patches I still felt better than the new med makes me feel. Has anyone had a similar blood pressure experience with hormones?? I see the doctor tomorrow and I have a gut feeling he's going to say it's not the new meds and that I'll feel better if I give them time.

I'm so tired of feeling so unbalanced and really feel worried about the blood pressure.

How did your appointment with your doctor go? Is your blood pressure improving? Have you had any improvement with your hormone symptoms?

I used a combination hormone therapy for a short time after my surgery. It was called Estratest, which is a combination of esterified estrogens and methyltestosterone. Those components are not bio-identical and the ratio is fixed, which of course means you can't adjust the dose of just one part if one part isn't the right dose for you. I ended up going on compounded hormones creams after that, and each hormone was dosed separately. I then went to just using 0.1mg estradiol patches and that particular hormone therapy is what I have been on for most of my post-op life. I was 45 when I had my surgery and I'm 65 now.

If you prefer the patches, maybe you would get symptom relief from a higher dose. After getting the estrogen dose right, you could then add in compounded testosterone cream.

Let us know how you're doing.
