Endo and Estrogen ?

I am currently on the Climara Patch .05 and have endometriosis. I have read that endo can be worse with estrogen. I plan on talking to my doctors next week about this and wondered if others were put on Estrogen only after surgery and have had any problems with their endo reoccurring later?

Endo and Estrogen ?

Hi There
i had my last Ovarie removed due to Endo . My Doctor wasn't worried about it for me because it was all removed. Other cases may be different though. Good idea to talk to your Doc .
My adhesions were so bad everything was stuck to each other and the abdominal wall. They didnt get them all. There are some still on my bowel but the doctor said they were too close to an artery and he didnt want to mess with them. So im sure that some day i'll be back in for more adhesion removal.
Wishing you luck, Shelby

Endo and Estrogen ?

HI azstrait

That is a common question endo ladies have. Each doctor has a different approach to when a woman should start estrogen after a hysterectomy. When you have enometriosis and then you have a hysterectomy, they usually remove the endo that is found in there. The problem can come when little microscopic pieces of endo are left behind after the surgery.(It is sometimes very hard to find it all) If you start estrogen and if there is any pieces left behind, then the estrogen can make the endo "active" again.

The estrogen itself will not cause the endo to come back..Only if it was not completely removed during surgery. There are some doctors who make women wait a period of 3-6 months (mine included) before they start estrogen so that if it was not all removed, it will starve off and die. Estrogen does feed the endo.

One more thing you might want to talk to your doctor about is his thoughts on progesterone cream. Some doctors like to use progesterone cream to counteract any negative effects the estrogen might have on your endo.

Hope all goes well at your appointment
