Unhappy - Need HRT Advise Going Out of my Mind : ( Need HRT Advise Going Out of my Mind : (

Hi Sisters.

I am 40 yrs old had hysterectomy with ovaries removed. I was NOT on any HRT and started having hot flashes so bad I passed out. I also could not sleep and just felt awful awful awful : (

My friend told me to go to a bio identical dr. so I did , she gave me the vivelle dot . 375, and these progesterone 50mg pills from compound pharm. Told me to take 2 pills a day. I stopped the progesterone after 7 days because I felt puffy, bloated and very tired. I kept the vivelle dot on but it is now day 14 and still having minor hot flashes.

Is this all just trial and error ? I am tempted to double the vivelle dot patch to see if that fixes my hot flashes. Also maybe I should take just one progesterone pill at night. The estrogen without progesterone does worry be because on my endo.

I am not sure what to do next ? How long should I wait between adjusting my dosages and should I just take estrogen for a while and then add progesterone ?

ugh what a drama I am so fustrated need advise.

Hi Marie,
14 days isn't really a fair trial. If the hot flashes are minor and are improving from what they were before you started I wouldn't change just yet. Although .375 is a fairly low dose.

I think it would be very helpful for you to be keeping a journal of our symptoms. A journal can help to give a clearer picture if things are getting better or worse over time.
