Hormone question


If you read the patient information sheet for any hormone product, synthetic or bio-identical, you're pretty much going to get the same list of warnings and potential side effects. There is no such thing as a hormone therapy guaranteed not to cause symptoms. If there was, we'd all be on it and there would be no need for hormone choices...or the Hormone Jungle.

Hormones out of balance can cause of many symptoms so of course the trick is to find balance. Usually that's done using the trial and error process, starting with estrogen. Some women are lucky and find the right hormone therapy on the first try. Others, like me, wander around in the Jungle for a while before finally hitting on the right thing.

You are very, very early in your recovery and fluctuations in your hormones are to be expected whether or not you are using hormone therapy. Your ovaries produced hormones which are stored and will be depleted. You'll be adjusting to your new source of hormones as your body recovers from major surgery. It takes time and patience to find balance for many of us so don't be surprised if whatever you start out on doesn't seem to be working at first. Don't jump to make a change at the first sign of trouble, but rather give it a couple of weeks to level out before considering a change.

Many women use Premarin for their hormone therapy and do very well on it. If you don't want to try it, ask your doctor for something else. If you don't know what's available, you can read through articles #10 - 13 in this link to the Hormone Jungle Articles.

Best wishes as you begin your recovery!
