anyone lose weight with hrt

I started HRT 10 days ago-After my July 07 Hyster--they removed everything but 1 ovary that no longer is producing hormones--I started gaining weight with low estrogen and now I am on premarin .06 mg and I have no appetite--my symptoms are easing--not achy anymore and I have more energy--has anyone lost weight on HRT--my Doc seems to think I will because my metabolizm was slow! I was just wondering if anyone has lost weight or does everyone gain!!! Jeanine

I use the patches, while trying them out I have 2 doses I have been playing with. The higer dose makes me more achy and more hungery. The lower patch still gives me a few mini hot flashes, I call warm fuzzies. I am going to talk to the OB about getting a patch with a happy medium..TOO much HRT for me has caused me to have a feeding frenzy every now and then.

How did your doc find you low on estrogen? Did you just ask for tests? I know I need to go,but just can't make the call. Worried he will tell me I have both my ovaries, so there can't be a problem.

I called my Doc and told him some symptomes I was having--Fatigue, achy joints,uncontollable crying,headaches--he ordered blood test and then he called with the results and we laughed because I cried and told him I thought I was just going crazy and I did not want to tell him what was goin on! He gave me the best advice--he said, I am being paid to do a service for you--That I know how my body feels better then anyone, and I should never be afraid to call and tell him what is happening--he also told me that in some cases, ovaries stop working after a hyster, for various reasons! DON"T BE AFRAID TO CALL YOUR DR. Good Luck! Jeanine

I have lost 10 lbs since surgery, but I have had 3 surgeries in 3 months. I am on villedot .75. I am never hungry, but I know I must eat to survive. I sometimes forget to eat. I know once I start working out again, I will gain my muscle mass back and that will put some weight on. I never thought I would have this
problem. I have never in my life been in a size 2. I am 5'2. I am
not going out to buy clothes, because I know the size 4's are
just around the corner. I had gained weight over the years
I think due too hormones and being on antidepresents for a few years. Once I stopped that I lost weight. I was in a size 10
3 years ago. Lost weight after stop taking prozac about 2 years ago, then with the surgery I lost more. I think HRT does
help with weight control. I know antidepresents will put weight
on. It put a extra 25 pounds on me. Glad I am off them and
I am not depressed and feel great considering what all I have been through.

Sisters~ It's all in the mind and the HRT. I believe that!
