Progesterone after TAH? Herbal remedies for libido?

It's been 2 yrs since my surgery, TAH (uterine cancer) and still I have no sex drive at all I now have Hashimotos thyroiditis, gained 30 lbs, and depressed most of the time. On rx for that,. I was reading about progesterone cream and how it might help with the low libido (in my case dead libido) LOL poor HB, but of course Doc says I don't need it I have no uterus! I was looking for some herbal remedies but so far nothing that I am sure about. Can anyone help or suggest something, I want my sex drive back!!

Re: Progesterone after TAH

What sort of HRT are you on? Are you on thyroid meds too?

I didn't regain my libido until I used vaginal estrogen (femring). But I've been on prometrium (progesterone oral capsules) since I started HRT post surgery. Also on thyroid meds (Armour) as Hashimoto's here too.

Re: Progesterone after TAH

I'm not on any HRt, my cancer was estrogen based so Docs said no to any HRT. The only meds I"m on is thyroxine 150.
I just know there must be something that can help me

Hi Smiley10!

I'm sorry that you are dealing with a missing libido. There are a lot of women who will be able to relate so hopefully you'll get some input from members who have had success using a non-hormone supplement.

Since progesterone is also a hormone and your doctor has said "no" to hormones, I've moved your thread here to the No Ovaries - No Hormones - Managing Menopause message board so that you can share with those in the same situation.

Good luck to you!

Have your DHEA and testosterone levels checked. I had mine checked and the lab results both came back low. My hormone doctor has me on a low dose of DHEA and it has helped You may want to have a simple test done and see if this helps you out.

Re: Progesterone after TAH? Herbal remedies for libido?

I had moved so I had to change Dr's. My new Dr advised me that I shouldn't be on any hormones. I've been taking estrogen in different forms since 2004. she said that was too long to be on HRT? because of side effects. When I went off, I've experienced hot flashes, depression, emotional problems, no libido, vaginal dryness. I'm ready to go back to HRT. In the mean time I have looked into alternatives because I'd like to live without being on meds. So I've been taking Maca. It's a herbal suppliment. I started on July 12, 2010 and so far it has helped with my emotions and my libido is back a little. But I still have dryness and my hot flashes aren't as bad. I do have to sleep with a fan on though. I have noticed I have a yellowish tinted vaginal discharge, not sure what that is about. Hope this gives you some insite.
If there is anyone out there that can address my issues, I'd appreciate it also.
