Hormones, Sex, changes in libido

I had uterus, ovaries and tubes taken out 7 days ago by Da Vinci robotic. I am being stubborn about hormones because I want to know what a hot flash feels like, want to know how life without hormones is....so far nothing.

I am not a medicine taker and the thought of it is not setting well with me. Tell me what to expect. Do I need patch, cream, pills, gel or a combo. I am single, and like sex...alot. I hope I don't lose that, or my ability to get wet without help. Give me the good or bad news.

A week into it and my main concern is sex....I am feeling way too good!! Going to be a long six weeks!

Re: Hormones, Sex, changes in libido

Im soon to be 49yrs old and had my hysterectomy Jan/09..I had every symptom you could think of including migrains ,insomnia,and very low libido..this was a year or more before my hystersctomy due to fibroids.Anyway bc i couldnt absorb estrogen via pills,patch.or spray(who knows why?)My Dr suggested I try the implant.So far I have had 2 and am due for another next week.I havent felt so good in years and my libido is almost scary!Yikes!Although my hubby is lovin it!My biggest fear is the usual CA,blood clots etc.but the results have outweighed my fears!Good luck!!

Re: Hormones, Sex, changes in libido

I actually was very surprised by the onset of menopause...I was under the belief that because I kept my ovaries this would be avoided. Wrong. My surgery was June 30th and around early August I started waking up in sweat. I am not one to sweat alot and I was waking up soaking wet. I would take a shower in the morning and it would not "take".....like, I'd have to lift my shirt because I was sweating. I was unbelievably moody and irrational...the worst part for me though was the fatigue. Fatigue that is unimaginable. The premarin has helped me tremendously. My dr. said that with my PCOS it did not shock him...would have been nice to have known pre-operatively though.

Re: Hormones, Sex, changes in libido

Everyone is different, some women don't have many symptoms, others get them full force. There is no right or wrong when it comes to hormones. There are many choices out there, the right one is the one that works for you. You can read more in the articles at www.hormonejungle.com

Best wishes for a smooth recovery.
