I had a compete hysterectomy on July 20, 2010 and a few days after my surgery I started using an estrogen hormone patch 1.0 dose. I noticed if I use the whole patch I cried all of the time so I tried cutting it in half and now I feel like I have no patience and get mad over every little thing. I also feel like I have no libido at all. Has anyone else experienced this and what did you do. I just don't feel like myself and I know I can't keep feeling this way.

Re: Need Answers

Have you spoken to your doctor about this? Sometimes the dosage needs to be adjusted to find the "just right" dose for you. I wouldn't advise changing the dose without consulting the doctor first.

i'm 5 months postop from my hyst and have been on the HRT roller coaster since the hospital... i've finally found a combination that my body seems to like... it is definitely hard to find the right balance though... keep in contact with your dr and let them help you find the right dose for you...
