Question - progesterone question progesterone question

I'm having LSH/BSO on Friday and was given Climara 0.05 patches for my ERT. No mention of progesterone. Is it true that if there's no uterus, progesterone isn't needed?
I've been reading about hormones and came across something that said:

"If you have had a hysterectomy, you may need prescription estradiol, and low–dose, over-the-counter progesterone cream complements this nicely. (Even post hysterectomy, your body needs both these hormones to achieve hormonal balance.)"

So now I'm back to being confused. Do I need this with my patch or should I "wait and see" how I feel?

Re: progesterone question

Although with a uterus you need progesterone, without one its not required. But it still might help. A lot of women don't take progesterone and do fine. Its something you can discuss with your Dr. You can read some articles on this site, too. There are a lot of opinions on what you "must" do, but I'm starting with just the estradiol and I'll see how it goes before I "stir the pot" with more hormones I may not need. Good luck finding balance
