HRT Forever?

I won't be seeing the Dr. again for 3 weeks and am very curious - if you have no ovaries do you stay on HRT forever? I'm on Premarin 1.25 right now and feel wonderful. Will my dose be decreased as I age, be taken away completely or stay the same? Since ovaries continue to produce hormones after menopause it seems like they should continue to be replaced. I feel so good now I don't ever want to change a thing. Anybody with an answer?

HRT Forever?

Hi Ladies,

From what I understand, you can stay on it indefinitely if you choose to do so, but most drs. suggest you taper off when you would normally be going through natural menopause, so it depends on your age when you started HRT. Many drs. too, have changed there opinions about HRT, and some suggest staying on for no more than 5 yrs. Hope this helps.

Thanks so much for the input. Sorry it took so long to get back to you, DH became seriously ill and I spent the last few days at the hospital with him. He's at home now and doing fine. Now if we can just learn to take turns being semi-invalids we'll be OK. Good luck to all!

HRT Forever?

Mrs C,
I'm sorry to hear your dh was ill. I'm glad that he is home and doing better.

I initially thought I would be on hrt forever, but now I'm not so sure. I've been on hrt now for 4 years and I know that I will be on it for the next few years at the very least. For now I am happy where I am at and don't even want to think about stopping. I will probably reevaluate again in a few years.

Is your Dr. leaving the choice up to you whether to stay on or go off of HRT? I, too am feeling very well and don't want to change a thing. It seems that with no ovaries I would have to at least have a lower dose the rest of my life if I'm not allowed to keep taking the same dose I am now. Guess I'll just have to wait and see what my Dr.'s thoughts are. Thanks for the . DH is doing better every day!

This is a question I have wondered about. I have read that our ovaries stop producing any estrogen as we age. They do continue to produce testosterone. Our adrenal glands produce the estrogen our bodies need after menopause. If this true then I would not think we would always need to be on hrt. What has any one else found out about what our ovaries produce after menopause?
